The place is nice during spring summer but the food is not so good. The tapas are very poor, the quality too. The sea food was not washed as it should be

We went there on a spontaneous decision, we were the only clients, they weren't busy! A clue perhaps but it was 14.30. Possibly because of this we had fantastic service from the lady we believed owned the restaurant. We ordered a medley of tapas including squid and gambas (rather chewy), octopus which, although relatively tasty looked awful and tortilla. Two small carafes of rosé wine, a couple of diet cokes and a bottle of sparkling water completed our meal.
The service was faultless and both our server and the chef made great efforts to make us feel welcome. The food was cheap, total bill €60 for four but it just failed on so many other levels.
Despite these good points the food was average, at best, and I have to say there must be better places to eat in Apt!

Service is nice, and for their sake, I wish I could stop here. But no! Food is simply just anything fried. Old shrimps, fried, old squids- fried, cheese - fried! A lump of bread fried and toasted with 1 slice of ham. Simply crap! After this, the adverts said 2 tapas 1 dessert and wine or coffe, 14€. Agree cheap, but the bill was very different. Don't go there!

The man and woman (husband and wife?) who run the service at this restaurant are the hardest and fastest moving service staff I've seen in years!

This place was recommended in a guide book and thankfully we found it (Google maps wasn't much help).

We loaded up on the tapas we know and love including tortilla, meatballs and sweet peppers. I think the o let thing they didn't have (which I adore) were padron peppers. We had sangria as well.

The place was busy and lively. If you want a quick meal here then perhaps this isn't the place for you. It's a place to sit back, relax, enjoy, talk, laugh, eat and drink at.

And they do it so very well.

Visit if you're in Apt.

Setting couldn't be nicer but food was horrible in every way. Oil and potato overload. Very disappointing for first lunch out in Luberon.
