“friendly and value for money”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Popped in here for light evening meal. Had bruchetta (chicken soaked in lime marinade). Was excellent followed by very large Peach melba. staff very attentive. helped us improve our French. Really liked the atmosphere and all the staff including the chef made a point of saying hello

“Convienient situated restaurant but neglected”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

It seems to be a kind of neglected restaurants. Pezenas works for itself. Many tourist walking by whole time. It does need to much care to collect some money each day just fishing few of them. And it is the way of existence for La Belle Epoque. Food is average, prices are rather high, service is careless. I can not recommend the restaurant unless the food and staff are not important. Sad.

“Beautiful reaturant, that does not live up to its surroundings.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

The food in La Belle Epouqe is presented very nicely on yout plate, unfortunatly that is where the praises end.

The duck salate starters was warm greacy and outright disgusting to the uneditable point and equally bad was part of the main course, duck in whine sauce that came with re-heated day old potatoes, the duck itself was well cooked but it was presented on a spear with some old peppers and some ghastly red mush they call sauce but achually tasted nothing like any sauce we ever had (not in a good way mind you).

The desserts we had may have been the only good thing about this embarrasing experience as the chokolate cake was enjoyable, but nothing to write home about.

The service was poor, very very slow and un attending. I usually take it easy on my vacations and i am not in any rush, but waiting over an hour for desserts in a room atleast 42 c. While the waiters are talking in the kitchen is just too much to ask.

I would recommend you saving yourself the bad experience of this resturant and spens your money else where..

“Intimate & inexpensive dining”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Found this place totally by accident when walking around the ancient centre of Pezenas. It is an attractive old building where one can eat in a small courtyard area or a tiny dining room that faces out onto one of old Pezenas' narrow streets. When we were there the courtyard was, at it turned out, justifiably busy & we chose the cosy little dining room. Sadly this means that I can't comment on the main dining area but we felt very much at home at our table where we had the pleasure of having a fine & reasonably priced lunch (fixed price 3 course) alone apart from the occasional visit by the attentive waiter & the odd passer-by looking in through the window. One even took a photo of us in the hand-decorated room with its rather fetching mural, while another spoke to us about it as he went by. Could he have been the artist? The cost of this nice addition to a visit to Pezenas on market day? 30€.50, or £24.85 at the time we visited. No bottle of wine as I was driving, hence the low price.Would we go again? If in Pezenas there's plenty to choose from but yes.
