excellent for a family meal

We were a party of four grown ups and three teenagers and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Tomate Verte. A short menu with only a few choices of each of starter, main course and dessert but every dish we all chose was beautifully presented and superbly cooked. I had joue de boeuf with a... read more

The staff were simply lovely here. Very attentive, very caring, and responsive. Definitely not your stereotypical "French" service here; everything was prompt, friendly and helpful. The food was very, very good. It's not amazing--but it is very, very good. For the prices I would have expected a bit more elegance--it's a street bistro with prices that seem a bit higher... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel and whilst advertised on the local tourist map we were not disappointed. The pork and sea bass were cooked very well and the pork was tender, all served with nice veg. We skipped the deserts in favour of the many ice cream parlours around not to say the deserts looked really nice.... More

We arrived without reservations, but came early enough that we scored a table for four in the main room. The staff was rushed, and while service was good at the beginning of the meal, as the place filled up, service got slower and slower. The food presentation was impressive and the quality matched the appearance. We were very happy with... More

Service was friendly. No English menu but waiter was helpful. All dishes were good. No surprises. About 40 Euro per each, including one bottle of white local wine. Nice evening. Recommended.

My Friend from Aix recommend this restaurant. With no reservations we managed to get the last table for 4. The green tomato tart was very nice. My wife had the fois gras that was exceptional. My friend had the pouched chicken bites that were a little dry. I had the rabbit that was very good. My wife had the duck... More

A very welcoming and helpful staff, whether in French, English, Spanish, etc. Quiet , professional, completely unpretentious. The home-made fois gras is exceptional, the main courses excellent bistro fare. The house red falls short of the food so order something better

Modern decor, good soundtrack, helpful service. I had pumpkin soup and then lamb shank. Both were good, although in need of seasoning.

This restaurant came highly recommended, including by our hotel. But it turned into a disappointing, tiring experience. They were quite busy when we got there, so were expecting somewhat of a delay in service. But no menus for 30 minutes? And that long again to take our order? The owner at one point early on stopped but our table, very... More
