Underrated

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... read more

Very pleasant restaurant by the coast of the Etang de Thau, where mussels and oysters are farmed. Mèze is a small fishing town, and this is one of several restaurants serving fresh local produce. 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

Our waiter was abrupt and rude. Several menu items were unavailable and the food was unremarkable. Their "claim" is cooking over the vines, however this wasn't happening on our visit.

In he whole region there is no better restaurant than L'eau Sel. Fantastic. Where ever you go, Bouzigues, Meze, Montpellier etc you cannot find such well prepared gourmet dishes. Service is first class also and the owner goes the extra mile to please you. I never write reviews like this but L'eau Sel really deserves the highest points in my... More

Just spent a week in Meze where we enjoyed 2 wonderful meals at L'eau Sel. Thoroughly recommended - best restaurant in Meze without a doubt & very good value.

Service was friendly but it took us an age to get the menu, let alone a drink. The food was nice in the main - my starter was lovely - but my mother had mussels and they appeared to have dirt on the outside so wasn't a great start. The portions however for starters were huge. The mains were nice... More

We really had a good lunch in this rather nice setting: across from the lagoon,and away from the trashy glitz of many other coastal towns. The service was friendly and efficient and the food fresh and well prepared. My steak was excellent (although the added avocado on top was perhaps unnecessary). I have become a 'connaisseuse' of 'tarte tatin' and... More
