We liked this place so much that we ate there twice. Nice friendly atmosphere, the staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. Surprisingly reasonable too .It was reccommended by the staff at our hotel and didn't disappoint.

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.

We ate here after a friend had read some good reviews (and I see it's marked very well on this site). To be honest, it was so overpriced that I don't think it could have had a chance at satisfying. I opted for the 29 Euro appetizer + entree. For the appetizer, I chose the tomate verte tart tartin, which... More

We ate here after receiving a recommendation from both the Hotel Cezanne and frommer's. I had the herb pâté to start, which had a mealy consistency in addition to being unappealing to the eye. My dinner was even worse, however. The risotto came without any shellfish--they didn't have any to include the server said--and it was completely devoid of flavor.... More

I went without a reservation at 7:30 on a Saturday night in spring and was able to get a table -- but the place filled up quickly. The appetizer of tarte tatin, made out of tomatoes, is delicious -- served with a savory sorbet. Just dreamy. The pork medallions with a mustard sauce needed salt, but were quite good. Good... More

My wife and I had the three course lunch which included a glass of wine for 19 euros each. Great value and very nice food. Service was friendly. Recommended

We enjoyed our dinner greatly and can highly recommend the namesake entrée. The mains were a good size and excellent and allowed for a delightful desert. We would recommend this restaurant.
