I've lived in Aix for a year now (and in France for 8 years) so have had a good chance to try out different restaurants. Coming here was a big mistake - everything about it was just awful - I was cross for the whole day thinking of the money and time we had wasted there. Service was slack and... More

Perhaps the first mistake I made was to order beef in France. What I received was a slab of fatty, grissly meat, served solo on a wooden platter, with a bowl of frites on the side. The meat was tasteless, poorly prepared, and not very pleasant to behold. My wife had another dish, which was equally tasteless. Neither of us... More

I would have liked to have rated this restaurant 5, but their main dishes held them back. But make no mistake, the tarte tatin de tomatoe verte is the most unusual dish, extremely delicious, and the presentation is incredilbe. The tomato is baked in a delicate puff pastry, with possibly some cheese baked in. It is paired with a green... More

It is hard to find a good restaurant in Aix, and this is one of the bad ones. The food is mediocre at best and overpriced. A salad with wilted leaves and the 'catch of the day' that looked and tasted like they reached the restaurant several days before. Everything uniformly insipid. A head waiter who spends much of his... More

We went to the "tomate Verte" for dinner...It was a very negative experience! The starter with spargel tartar was nearly tasteless, the worst was the " Jacobs mussels" there were nearly rotten. Even just served they got a very strange smell and the taste was one of very overdated mussels.. We didn't eat them and there was no reaction neither... More

I had the worst meal I've experienced in France at this sorry excuse for a restaurant. Like many other unhappy patrons, La Tomate Verte was suggested to us by staff at our hotel along with gushing praise and glowing reviews. They told us this was a hidden gem that they had discovered exploring the city. Not likely. I can only... More

This was recommended by our B&B, and was so yummy we ate here twice! And both times I had the roasted tomato tarte for starter! Staff were good. Chocolate pudding for dessert also scrumptious.

This place came highly recommended by our hotel. All ingredients are fresh and they only have limited supply so go early was the advice. The tomato tartar with goat cheese was nice but my steak which the head waiter recommended was tough and taste less, twice, the first time it came well done although ordered medium rare and the second...

Also had the tomate verte tart tatin - red tomato, nothing special. My lamb chops were very tough and difficult to cut. There has to be better.
