This restaurant used to be called Le Jardin de Frédéric and was wonderful. However a couple of years ago, it changed hands and unfortunately went from being a fantastic place to eat, to somewhere I will never eat again.
We booked a table the week before for five of us; a family meal. When we turned up, the table that we had booked was occupied and we were pushed toward a group of tables that had been hurriedly arranged in one tiny corner of the outside seating.
After ordering (from initially what looked like a very nice menu) we were dismayed at having to wait for over half an hour for it to be served, only to have half of the party receive their starters 20 minutes before the others. We complained to the young waiter who was most affronted and said there was nothing they could do, “they were busy”.
The same happened with the main course which was served to all five of us across a 15 minute period (and which was also cold by the time it arrived on the table). Again we complained and at this point the waiter became verbally aggressive, argumentative and threatening. This is certainly not the sort of behaviour you’d expect in a restaurant in France (or anywhere else for that matter).
All in all, a horrible experience and a once great restaurant, wrecked. As for the comment about being busy, well all I can say is that you can visit any one of a number of fast-food outlets who are busy all the time, the fact remains that the standard of food in one of those places is superior to Les Saveurs de Provence!
Eat at your own risk.... and don’t question the waiter… in fact, just walk on by and find somewhere else…. There are plenty of other ( and better) places to eat in Saint Remy.
