Oysters & Muscles by the sea

You'll need some French to muddle through and you might be worried you are not getting what you pointed at on the menu... but rest assured you will! Great fresh oysters and a mountain of muscles... pair it with a Rose and enjoy the sunshine and seaside air.

Great fresh seafood we used it twice in a six day stay and it delivered first class food and service both times. Not too expensive either

We had the set menu for my wife's birthday which we felt was good value for money. The food was well cooked and the service was very efficient

We happened upon this little restaurant was we were driving to the port in the lovely little town of Meze, across from Sete. We sat outside (it was 36 degrees) and chose the set menu for lunch (16 Euros). We had oysters gratinee, a saffron based cuttlefish main and a large dish of sorbet for desert. Excellent value, good food,... More

We both enjoyed a wonderful evening at this 'edge of Meze' restaurant. It is situated close to the Etang de Thau, with a good view. We were welcomed by a delightfully smiley young waitress who was very helpful during the entire evening. The menu was varied and the portions were not too large, which I always find off putting. Both... More

Good cooking, friendly staff, & helpful service recommending a local wine from Domaine les Yeuses, just down the road. We would go back to Mèze if... More

Meze is a particularly attractive little town with a small and pretty harbour. I know many of the restaurants there and most fail to live up to expectations. I am, therefore, surprised that L'Eu Sel is only rated at number 22, as it is significantly better that most of those which are rated higher. My wife and I recently had... More
