We were terribly disappointed today. We have eaten here before and have been very pleased. It has a lovely shaded terrace, away from traffic, with a very good menu. Today was our first outing since the beginning of the pandemic, and we were really looking...forward to lunch here. Parking proved to be easy today causing us to arrive a little early, so we walked around the block a few times. When the bells rang at noon, we arrived to ask for a table. Yes, we were the first ones there, so I understand if we aren't seated immediately. But the hostess must have passed us three times. No "bonjour." No "j'arrive." No "deux minutes." No smile. No eye contact. She was clearly mad at us for just being there. Not ones to stay where we are not wanted, we left, and walked down the hill to Le Florentin where we were treated very well, so the day was ultimately saved. We will probably try Grains de Siecle again, because maybe it was just a bad day. We all have them. It can be forgiven. But if this is their new normal, nope.More

We stayed in Aubagne for 10 days and one night we decided to go for a meal locally. I have traveled around the world and I have never experienced such an appalling service in my life. The waitress was working alone on Friday evening with...full restaurant. Our food was good but that was it. After finishing our mains we wanted to order dessert. Waitress didn’t even made eye contact for 45 minutes and was running around very busy restaurant on her own which was very sad to see. She rolled her eyes when I finally went to her myself to ask about dessert menu. After looking at all this for another 20 minutes we changed our mind about the dessert which was a shame because I had my mother with me and it was her last evening with us and we just wanted to have nice relaxed family meal which was ruined. Note to the management of this place: you are exploiting your staff forcing them working in this conditions and also you are destroying customers plans and expectations and also embarrassing yourself and your own country. Shame on you.More

This was by far the tops in town during a week stay. Location is in the old medieval quarter. We ate here threes times. They have a very attractive dining room and a large terrace that has some canopy cover for rain. They don't speak...English, so have your French menu translations ready. But the service was very pleasant and attentive, Beef filets were the top. The classic coquille St Jacques is also a winner. Save room for the fabulous dessert. They have out of this world tiramisu.More

Real frenchj dishes made with professionality and with good taste. Obviously we talk about the French kitchen and moreover we are not on the sea, then...the kitchen is made with vegetables, meat, galletes and sweets.. Very nice place, at least a little bit slow form...the order to the service, but the wait is valid. Not so expensive, in the average, about 20-30 € per person without wine and coffee and sweets. Suggested!!More

The waitress spoke no English and we spoke no French. We managed with some online translation. We sat indoors and got an idea of what was to come from the lovely aroma emanating from the kitchen. The salad was indeed larged sized and the smoked...salmon delicious. The best was the beef, fillet mignon, with black pepper gravy.More

They were busy. Service was painfully slow. Food was less than mediocre and reminded us of restos in France 20 years ago. Very poor quality for the price and, I may be wrong, but it seems as though 2 restos are being run out of...one kitchen. Does that matter, no it doesn't as our food was not good. I did tip the young waiter as he tried his best in a bad situation. Bon courage garcon!!More
