We opted for Thym a l'Ail for lunch as they offered moules marinieres. Tasty with crisp fries. My partner ordered a special salad mix, - granted. So there was pretty much an ok lunch on the sea front i Bandol. Friendly and quick service from our waiter as well.

Ate a Saturday lunch here. I went for the 29 euro menu, gratin of mussels, fillets of red mullet with basil, ile flottante. All very good, well served at a good pace by friendly and attentive waiters. This is an old-fashioned country-style restaurant in a town where many of the others have modernised, so it feels slightly anachronistic, though pleasantly... More

On our way from Nice to Marseille we stopped in Bandol. Had lunch at this restaurant mainly because the skies opened up and this was the closest place to seek shelter. The table was comfortable and the service was fine. My wife ordered the chicken salad which she enjoyed very much, I ordered the steak hache, I guess I should... More

Having looked at the information boards outside the restaurant and the menu we decided to eat from their 3 course menu at €22. My wife ordered a glass of wine and a bottle appeared. We had our first and second courses... More

Have been twice in the last 10 days, first for lunch and then for dinner. My wife had fish on both visits from the menu du jour and enjoyed both meals. I had couscous royale for lunch and fried chicken for dinner. We had desserts on both occasions which were very nice. The service was friendly, courteous and relaxed. We... More

The waiter forgot our order and came back after 15 minutes to ask us what we had ordered. We enquired whether the restaurant had wi-fi access. The waiter said he would make enquiries about the password and never came back. After an hour it became apparent that there was no wi-fi in the restaurant. One would have thought that we... More

Had Moules and goats cheese and bread for lunch. The restaurant was full of locals and we had a great meal. Not a lot of English spoken but between us we communicated well enough.

I asked the Waiter is the Calamari frozen? No was the reply, well if not they were very overcooked, Michelin tyres would have been proud. On seeing the left dinner the waiter replied "Well calanari sometimes comes up like that"
