I have visited the de luxe restaurant L'Orangerie in Chateau de Berne many times over the years, since I have a house in Lorgues. The quality of the place is normally very good. But we had a very bad experience in July. Decided to go there again in august and this time it was excellent. Food quality and wines were excellent.
Some of the waiters are superb, but there is one or two who do not really know what they are doing. At the visit in july a waitress spilled wine first in my plate, and did not change the plate. then she later spilled wine all over the table and did nothing, not even excuse.
The same waitress was there at our visit in august. this time she poured a redwine in a glass and some small insect was in it. she very quickly removed the glass and continued then to pour the same wine in this glass. I asked: What was the insect. she said: That was a mosquito! Then I said: You have now poured the same wine in a new glass and also in the glasses of the 3 other guests at this table. should you not change all glasses and mayby also change the bottle of wine?
She then did it, but again no excuse.
Such experience is not ok for a restaurant with this quality and with the level of pricing.
I give it one more chance now in October, just because the food is fine and the surroundings so nice. but his time it should be without such bad experiences as seen during the past two visits.
