Friendly, helpful servers and delicious food, especially the pizzas, moules and frites. We were grateful they invited us in even though it was close to the end of lunch service.

We went to the Pinocchio because we wanted a quick meal without spending too much. We had travelled all day, had not had any lunch so we were ready to eat. We had "moules/frites" as the price was very reasonable. The wine was more expensive than we expected, so we ordered a 75mls bottle of Cider from Normandy, which was... More

Recommended by apartment owners, but our experience was disappointing. My wife's pizza was burnt and they should have noticed it before serving it. Others were overloaded with so much cheese they were virtually inedible. Couldn't believe how much cheese we removed from 2 pizzas. To be fair to the staff they didn't argue about the burnt one and deducted it... More

We went for what looked like a standard pizzeria in one of Bandol's busy back streets. Here we were greeted by a waiter who took us to a table that was stuck next to a glass door. We asked for a different table and were shown another one that looked better. Until we realized we were sitting under a huge... More

Took ages on deciding where to go for final night. Restaurant looked welcoming, which enticed us in, but staff were mediocre in their welcome, and somewhat impatient with our attempts to use french (equally impatient if switched to English!). Apart form the aforementioned chips, the food was not pleasant. Sirloin steak thin and tough. Bread hard and unpleasant. Had to... More

The waiter made us feel very welcome and tried hard to help us English understand the vast menu. Lots of choice and prices for starters/mains are reasonable...but puddings are very expensive. The food arrived fairly quickly and although not a huge plateful, was very tasty. The restaurant is one side off the main harbour-side, but well worth a visit.

Not sure if my pasta dish was a olive oil pesto pasta or pasta with pesto. Fresh pesto, over cooked pasta swimming in olive oil. A shame as the lady was very nice. A never again for us...

There was no place for 6+1 child at the floor, so the waiter propose to go upstairs at the "Terrasse". I was imagining a real terrasse with a view. Instead of that the so-called terrasse was a big room with a side removed roofing with all the inconveniences and no advantage: smoking room because it was "unroofed", view on the... More
