“Sometimes great, sometimes ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I have visited this restaurant about five times.The wine recommendations have always been very good. The food quality sometimes varies too much (specially on Saturday market menu). But sometimes I have had the most excellent experience and I could recommend bouillabaisse; their speciality.

“Food overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Before the visit, I read a number of Tripadvisor reviews as well as the web pages. Our expectations were high. The restaurant is very popular, a table reservation is a must. The outsourced web operated reservation system operated smoothly.
We selected the top rated set menu, Menu bourgeois: beef carpaccio, roasted scallops, lamb shanks provencale and moscatel jelly with berries. Although tastes in general were dull, the carpaccio was the high point. The scallops were tasty, but - please rethink the sauce. The real low point were the lamb shanks. They have to be cooked long enough - so long that they almost fall apart. These weren't, far from it, and the dinner became an unpleasant struggle. We should have sent them to the kitchen, really.
The service at the tables was fast and efficient, and we were well looked after.
With an almost full house, the ambient noise rises to a level which makes it difficult to conduct a normal discussion.

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Very nice atmosphere, good service and excellent food.

Relatively small place and always a lot of customers. Good winelist and the menu has plenty to choose from.

Excellent value for money.

“Tasty food and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Great antipasti and a bouillabaisse which is really worth the visit!
You can get very nice wines even by the glass.

“Mange Sud good as always!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Have visited Mange several times before and will do so even in the future. They have reasonable prices and good food and pleasant service. The restaurant is often quite crowded especially on weekends as many others have noticed the same as I.
They have a wide variaty of good wines, some of which you cannot get anywhere else.
