I am surprised at some of the negative comments as arriving on a Sunday night with out a reservation we were greeted warmly and shown to a table where the waitress was excellent in explaining in English the menu to us and advising a suitable wine. We complimented them on the wonderful olives supplied to the table and were rewarded with a second lot being delivered.
Our entrees were well presented and the main course, mine a risotto and my wife's fish were excellent.
We were very impressed with the cost for the meal and the wine. Before leaving Provence we dined there once more and the service and food were as good.
Each time we dined the restaurant was full to capacity and this is a good sign.

Not scared away by some negative comments we ate, on a Monday night, the special of the day a dorade and from the menu a risotto. Both dishes were very well prepared seasoning was good. The desserts were as promised fresh fruit with some ice cream, not to special but by tasty. The service was very good and professional. We would surely advise to have dinner here. If you expect "etoiles" quality you might want to avoid it.

Whilst this restaurant is owned by the same person who owns a 1star and 2star Michelin restaurants, this would not be evident if you visit La Place now. Started off a great restaurant with excellent food and service but now poor service and uninviting menus. Spend more time at your restaurant Mr Charial and teach service and manners to your staff at La Place. Will not be returning until you do

Good but not up to expectations. There are better places in town, but if you have been to those, then head on down.

Waitress was awfull. She even did not try to understand us, brought dish that we did not order and since we refused to eat it we had to pay for it! We heard that waitresses discussed clients loudly. Very bad impression, although the meal was not so bad.
