“Good food and nice building!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

The restaurant is in a tiny road behind the beautiful Roman theatre, however very easy to reach on foot. The hall looks like a real ancient cave! It is really beautiful. With such a good ambiance I expected that the food wasn't the best, but I was wrong. I took the fish plate of "soupions" which was good, very big and not too expensive. My colleagues took the "gambas" (they said they were fresh and fully ok) and the meat filet which was served very well, with potatoes and vegetables.
We don't know French wines so it was difficult to choose from the rich list. We took the Lirac, the waiter said it was ok, and it was a good advice, it is a strong red wine but tastes good even with the "supions", maybe because they were cooked "à la provençale" with much butter and garlic, very tasty.
The only fault I remember of was that the "planchas" for cooking are near the tables, at customer's sight, which is good, but they smell very strong of fish and meat (of course...), so eating the dessert which such strong smell was not very pleasant.
However I really advice the eating experience and the atmosphere of this restaurant.
