“Good job we didn't read the reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We have just eaten at this restaurant and had a lovely evening. Good food in a very pleasant courtyard setting complete with pretty coloured lights. We all had the skewers, the duck and fig were delicious, the scallop excellent (although not very big) and the savoury pancakes on the next table looked good and seemed to go down well over there. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer, she even complimented our menu choices and poor attempts at speaking French. Just goes to show you sometimes have to try places and make your own decision rather than going on what other people think.

“wrong menus and snarly staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Avoid this restaurant. What they offer on their menu for their plat de jour--chicken breasts--turns out to be four wings and one spindly drumstick. When we asked about this, the waitress shrugged and said, "we try". Really? The rest of the plate consisted of a handful of lettuce and a small pile of french fries, a skimpy plate for 11.50 Euros. Service was slow but we were on holidays and not in a rush and initially content to just sit and people watch. Unfortunately, that turned out to be only another gitch in their service attitude. We learned when they presented the bill that the restaurant only accepts cash (or cheques, if you are from France) but the "NO CB" is not on their menu and is in very (very) small letters in the bottom corner of the outside menu board. When my husband--who has lived in France and speaks French fluently--suggested they either put it in their menu or tell people up front, the waitress took offense and said what a pleasure it was having guests like us come to the restaurant (add dripping sarcasm to that comment to get the full measure of its impact). Our change came back to us in a small jar filled with 5, 10, and 20 centimes to reinforce her distain. There are lots of restaurants in Pezenas so feel free to avoid this one and move on to anyplace else.
