Having lunched at Café M the same September week it got two good and one stinging review I can clear up some of the confusion. A single waiter was valiantly trying to serve too many tables. I hadn’t yet read the service complaint but did ask him why he didn’t have assistance. He explained that the other server is in her latter days of pregnancy and taking some time off.

Prices are reasonable here and the kitchen takes extra effort. The Caprese Salad was excellent; buffalo mozzarella framed with both green and red basil. The main dish included a garnish of roasted peppers. You do have to go inside to pay but the place is an art gallery with a show of paintings by noted New York artist, John Griefen. We spent more time at lunch than planned, but the setting, under umbrellas in a Medieval town square, is a place to linger.

We visited in good weather and really enjoyed sitting outside in the main square. Our dinner was pretty good although a little overpriced for the quality. Most items were very good while a couple of dishes just average. The service seemed typical for France where you're expected to linger for hours and getting l'addition can take some time. We spoke French to our servers, which I highly recommend no matter how bad yours is, it goes a long way. They did not have a card machine to bring to the table so you might as well pay inside if you're in a hurry or just ready to go. Otherwise enjoy the peaceful scenery and have some wine and cuisine of the terroir.

visited this place in the week of September 10th 2012; overall the food we had at this place was pretty OK; we have the baked salmon with potatoes and that was very nice; the entree was mortadelle with some veggies which could be better; the mortadelle was of low quality right out of the super market packaged
service is very poor; the young waiter had us waiting a long time, then we had to ask for coffee 3 times and in the end when we walked by the restaurant half an hour later after having left, dared to ask us if we had paid since he did not have the bill; we went to pay for our lunch inside since he never came to bring/collect it; lousy service ruining the experience somewhat

After been ignored for over 20 minutes we deceided to walk out There did not seem to be any system and a surly waitress who did not seem to care less. We escaped to the lovely Resteraunt La Bastide round the corner. When we returned to our accomodation we noticed several people had simlar experiences. Pity because the loaction is stunning
