Wonderful little find away from the busy part of the beach...

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... read 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

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

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

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.
