We wanted to try this restaurant last Sunday lunchtime and took seats outside so we could have a drink before deciding what to eat. There were several waiting staff on duty and it was not particularly busy; however we were ignored for 15 minutes so my partner went inside to order our drinks. Nothing came after 20 minutes and eventually we managed to flag down a passing waitress who had a face looking like she had just eaten a lemon and sand topped pizza (probably a house speciality). Mme responded to our repeated request for two drinks with 'C'est tout?'. When I replied with 'oui' I got a gallic tut that could be heard around the square. We did get our drinks after another 10 minutes and then our hostess demanded that we pay immediately! Needless to say we didn't stay for food. I have been to countless bars and restaurants and experienced variable service; however this is the first French establishment I have visited where I have not left a tip. Congratulations to both Augustins on this achievement!
