Not much to see on place de la comedie but the park at the end was worth a visit with nie trees and people sitting on the grass by a warm afternoon

“The place of light”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

What a magnificent feeling when you enter this place for the first time. A large place surrounded by white buildings with detailed architecture and you standing in the side will definitely feel the greatness of this place. The place of Comedy, after the synonymous Opera together with the fountain called the "Three Graces" with straightforward references in ancient Greece. Walk around and enjoy an atmosphere full of life and light, especially in a sunny day. You can't miss it, since it is nearby the train station.

“Typical French square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Place de la Comedie is a good photo op with lively restaurants and there are often interesting dancers/musicians/performers to watch if you feel inclined. The statue in the fountain is a reproduction but pretty nonetheless. I have seen homeless people begging at certain times of day and felt inclined to keep a close watch on my belongings.

“Not overwhelmed with the food or the service of Le Cafe 1893.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

I knew that I was in a French restaurant and that the food may not be as I expected however, I have to say that I was disappointed. Not only with the quality of my club sandwich but also with the mushy french fries. The crepe was not that good either. It may just have been me. The locals may love the cuisine of this restaurant. The service was slow however, that could be because the waiters were also taking care of the seaters sitting under the umbrellas in the plaza located in front of the restaurant.
