perfectly cooked fish, not cheap, but there is integrity present here

we were concerned that this would be a tourist trap, as many of the other restaurants along the marina obviously are, but we noted a high proportion of locals dining here, and the display of the fresh catch looked interesting the salads that we had as starters were well-assembled and generously... read more

I invited 3 friends for dinner on a Griday night. I went for a plate of local oysters as a starter and we all shared a large grilled fish called "denti" in French. It was wonderfull, service was a bit long but we had a great time. I highly recommend this place.

We walked the strip of restaurants along Port Vieux to fish out the best dining experience for a romantic dinner for two. Fortunately, we found L'Agua which stood out to us because it wasn't as cramped as some of the other restaurants and it had a more sophisticated feel- great lighting and decor. We both enjoyed the Linguini with saffron... More

Visited for lunch with my wife. Had a very nice view of the marina. Service very good. Linguini with saffron de mar and shrimp was excellent. Rum baba and raspberry tarte desserts were a hit and beautifully displayed. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Just had dinner here. A bit pricey, but what else to expect on the harbor? However, the set menu was excellent value and no less delicious. Service was good. Plus watching all the people stroll past is an added bonus to the experience.

We were a party of six for lunch. Our food was good. Service was also good, it is often the case when the owner works onthe premises. The place is nicely decorated and the terrace is cute.

We had a delicious lunch consisting mainly of seafood dishes. Our waiter was very good and provided great service. The restaurant is very nice with a lovely outdoor eating area right on the marina.

Black, red and leopard-print decor looked a bit passé but this place still seemed to attract well-heeled locals. There was even a forty-something female-only group having dinner, which, frankly speaking, I hadn't expect to see in France. The fish and seafood was really fresh and tasty but the portion was way too big. We chose a fish which they told... More
