“RUDE staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I unfortunately found myself at this restaurant this Sunday. The Waiter (Jean Pierre) was terribly rude. Very aggressive manor towards me and slamming drinks on the table. when we informed him we were not going to eat (due to the attitude) i was rudely told to leave the lunch table and move to another 'drink' table. Jean Pierre was very helpful at moving my drinks from one table to the other but slammed it back down. When i asked for the bill, the attitude was again very impolite. To sum it up, the staff (or staff member in question) need to learn the basic skills of life, politeness!!

“Worst service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I went to la belle epoque on a friday night to have a drink with my friends. After we emptied our glasses I asked the waiter to bring us new drinks. 10 minutes later we were still waiting for those glasses of wine. When I called the waiter and asked him about it, he rudely replied that he just hasn't come round to fixing the drink. However, while we we waiting, I saw him talk on the phone which looked like a private call. The waiter began insulting us and rudely taking away our drinks while asking us to leave. When I talked to the manager he did not even seem to care about the aiters behaviour, and the waiter kept on insulting me in front of his boss.
DO NOT GO THERE, you will only be insulted and complaints are not taken serious!

“Don't go there.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Rude waiters, food awful. We went for a late lunch. Just sat down and had a bottle of water we had brought with us. Some rude woman asked us to remove it. Food was awful and the waiters were extremely rude, Worst experience in Aix. Don't go there.

“To avoid!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

We went there 2 years aago and had a nice souvenir.
This time absolutly unbelievable!
The gnocki pastas of my sons with a grilled bee!
My wife meal with un-eatable vegetables with a taste of solvent!!
After that it was confirmed by waitress that the Chef was sick and staff doing whatever they want!!
We confirm the toilets very badly cleaned!
So absolutly not a place to go whererer it is nicely placed!
But do not hesitate taking local ice creams around from local makers! Gorgeous and better than the lunch!!
