“Be hungry!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We'd been looking around the Cours Saleya (flower market area) for a lunch venue, and were tempted by the food being eaten at the outside tables, so we got ourselves a table.

We ordered rigatoni and gnocchi and wow, they were absolutely huge! Both being pretty hearty eaters, even we couldn't finish these two main courses, let alone a starter or dessert. We hardly needed to eat for the rest of the day!

The food was excellent, and we wished we'd had the nerve to ask to share one dish between us. The main courses were priced around 18 Euros each. Our outside table was under a shade, and it was fun watching the visitors strolling all around us. The waiters were working extremely hard, and reset and filled tables as soon as they became vacant - an enormous turnover, and we felt we shouldn't linger too long once finished. We'd recommend this restaurant, but make sure you're hungry enough!

“Prepare yourself”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This restaurant had been recommended to me by the Star Hotel
I ordered a salad and seafood pasta .Thank goodness the waiter talked me out of the salad
I have never ever had such a large plate of pasta put in front of me .brimming with small delicious mussels clams and octopuses I was actually unable to eat it all
No wonder that the previous day I was unable to get a table
Prepare to be fully satisfied

“YUM!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

on a recent trip to France we came across this restaurant and were so impressed by the plates of food being served that we decided to try it the following night. we ended up eating dinner here twice and had lunch once. it was amazing! the portions are huge but the food itself is delicious!! we could never order desert but it looked fabulous too! the staff are lovely, we were lucky enough to not have to wait for a table but if it is a busy night it is definitely worth the wait. I cant recommend it enough! FABULOUS!!!

“Great”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We've been here a couple of times. Their forte is the antipasto platter, salads and pasta.
Pizza can be forgettable but the rest was quite delicious. Expect big portions for a very reasonable price. Service was fairly fast and attentive.
will return.
