The meal was very delicious - perfectly sized portions so you did not feel too full but did not leave hungry. The service was prompt and corteous - would be good for either couples as we saw dining there or for a business dinner.

Thos Restraunt restored our faith in contemporary French cooking.Chef Estevao Jerome has created a memorable experience.Set menus of 3 courses,tuna perfectly seared & encrusted with herbs,pork thick belly no fat crisp skin,perfect with raviolli of polenta filled with shredded pork - magnifiicent.My partner had mackerel with slices of carrot & orange reduction followed by grilled white fish ( name. Escapes me) with baby peas,mushrooms ,&other vegetables - magical.Cost with Chateau Neuf Du Pape 137 euros for 2.great values Previous night ate at Peron cost twice as much & not even half as good.This place deserves to be patronized.

We happened across the small and intimate Le Charles Livon by chance. We were hungry and tired and wanted something closely our hotel. We decided we didnt want to pay exorbitant tourist prices for bouiabaisse served by waiters in sailor suits and thought we try our luck at le Charles. A set menu for 49euros sounded good. What we got was a magnificent treat for our taste buds. The delectable frothiness of the asparagus amuse busch was only he beginning of a meal that is worthy of comparison with any hatted or starred restaurant in Paris, New York, Sydney or Melbourne. The dessert, a domed creation of toffee, sponge, icecream and chocolate was a sensational way to end our evening. PS. The service was fantastic!

This restaurant's chef is creative and prepares exciting, wonderful dishes. Everything was well-not only well-prepared and presented, but the service was also excellent-not always the case in France, by any means. We four all took the most expensive fixed price menu and requested that the chef pair wines for us, which he did. The cost for that was +-$37.00/person for glass after large glass of surprising but perfect pairings.

I have a citrus allergy and some of the items on our 'menu' has citrus. The chef prepared all the dishes citrus free, but not by leaving off sauces but by preparing sauces etc that worked w/out citrus.
