We were surprised at this restaurant's high rating having recently eaten there before going to the Orange opera. Maybe the restaurant over-reached itself; there were 40 or more tables out in the square for a minimal-choice dinner, pre-opera, at about €27.
It is certainly central and very convenient for the amphitheatre but the food was a great disappointment. An aubergine and mozzarella starter was virtually inedible and the fish was small and dry; pudding - I can't remember it now. The service was efficient and charmless. All in all, an overpriced school dinner. Might be better when they're not so busy but it's no way to maintain a reputation.
