“Food was delicious! Friendly staff and comfy dining environment!”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We like this restaurant very much. It has beautiful views with the sea in the distance. The fish and lamb we had for dinner were really tasty. I especially like how they used the tree bark to hold bread! The only thing I don't feel quite fit in this cozy area is this restaurant is a bit formal, different from the casual atmosphere in this environment and community.

“Special experience”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

This is genuine fine dining equivalent to Michelin one star. Excellent food, a well selected wine list, stylish service, and a glorious terrace surrounded by a riot of floral colour (photo).

We dined on the lovely terrace. Service was splendid as was the food. Expensive but worth it. A great experience.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Had dinner there last weekend and had wonderful meal in delightful surroundings. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The view from the terrace in particular was gorgeous. The service was slick, and the staff were very friendly. It's not the cheapest in Bormes, but is very good value for the whole experience. The restaurant was full despite being early season, bad weather and the recession. Will definitely go back if in the area again.

“Somewhat controlled dining experience”
Reviewed 26 August 2009

Our party of seven, including three children ate at La Rastegue. The experience was very regimented and arranged for the ease of the chef, rather than for the diner. Our well travelled children who have eaten in good restaurants the world over are always willingly accommodated and their requests for grilled fish or meat with vegetables never cause a problem. Not so at La Rastegue where o ur request for a simple serving of the set menu for our children was met with a flat no - there was a choice - take it or leave it. The food we ate was OK but very portion controlled, with the entire meal, including pudding or cheese having to be ordered at the same time - so if you happened not to have room for a pud then tough luck if you already ordered it. Likewise if you happened to want to follow up with some cheese, forget it if you hadn't ordered in advance.
Most disconcertingly, when we came to settle a bill of some 400 euros the card machine did not work and we were dispatched rather rudely over the road to the cashpoint. There was a very bold statement inside the wallet which contained the invoice stating that it was not the restaurant's fault if there card machine didn't work and that under no circumstances were diners to be rude to staff about this. Clearly we were not the only people who have experienced the card machine failure. When we asked for a VAT receipt this could only be produced in a handwritten form, not a computer generated form. So put the facts together and what do you have ? A restaurant that can only take cash and can't issue a VAT receipt - hope there aren't any tax inspectors dining there in future !
