Harbourside favourite

A small restaurant, big on service, friendly staff, usually a lunchtime visit. Menu d' jour worth having every time. We visit Meze every year, and its never failed to please.

This restaurant is among our favourites, in Meze. Very good value for money. Good choice of tapas. Nice to sit out with view of the harbour.

This a sweet little restaurant with a great position by the harbour. We normally have a modest lunch time menu and it has always been really satisfying. Nothing grand but for a simple honest meal it's great.

A wonderful unpretentious resto right on the port. Great service and delicious food. Fish and tapas starters (good for vegetarians) . All excellent.

Excellent location by the Port. Both times the service was spot on, with the friendly waitress patiently listening to our fairly non-existent French. And the food was so tasty ! We were both drawn to the Tapas menu for the starters, followed by delicious fish and (huge) gambas for main course. And the desserts concluded what was, both times, a... More

One of a number of restaurants by the port. We were attracted by the tapas menu (unsurprisingly, seafood dominated the other places we looked at) and this turned out to be a good decision. Plenty to choose from and scope for flexibility for someone looking for a lighter meal. Pleasant and efficient service. No doubt in the height of summer... More

The best lunch we had in Meze. Attentive but unobtrusive service, combined with wonderful food, made this a memorable experience. The tapas starters are unusual for France but work well. My main course of grilled gambas was the best I've ever had, tender, succulent and garlicky. Highly recommended nd good value. Can't wait for a return visit!

Had a fabulous lunch at Sanboulou. Wonderful location looking out onto the lagoon. Dining with a vegetarian and a child were no problem as the small menu was perfect with a great choice for everyone. The oysters were amazing as was all the seafood. The one surprise was I had beef and it was the best I have had in... More

Great little place on the harbour. Had the menu ... Choice of tapas as starters was excellent and we shared a decent variety. All were superb. Service was attentive and welcoming. Our main of Durard was prepared very well and tasty. Dessert was fine though by that point I was fairly stuffed. Tried to eat here again on our return... More

We dined at Sanboulou this evening, and it was excellent. The idea of choosing 3 tapas from a long list is a good one, and the Noix St Jacques with risotto we both chose were an excellent main dish. It is the best meal we have had in Meze.
