Pleasant seafood place in Antibes

On an evening my wife and I went out to have seafood and we tried this place. From outside it looks like any other place, but inside the boat-inspired decoration was very impressive.

What delightful restaurant, decorated as the interior of a boat and compact. Great menu, plenty of variety but the fish is a must. Fresh and beautifully prepared. Service is typically French, they leave you to get on with enjoying your food and are, as usual, a little slow at giving you the bill. But, hey, what a lovely experience for... More

You know the times a friend says 'I know this great restaurant in Antibes .... ' , You go there and unfortunately it's not that great. Hey ho. That's what happened here. It wasn't entirely the restaurant's fault. It's a fish restaurant, and I ordered duck (well I like duck a lot - usually - and it was on their... More

I can't add very much to the perfection on this place, I'm coming here frequently since at least 10 years, and it's still my preferred place for seafood on the côte d'azur. Oysters are always fresh and tasty, the crevettes rose are sweet and their mayonnaise is the best I've had. Also the bouillabaisse is great.

I have eaten a couple of times at l'Oursin, and friends go more frequently than I do - it is excellent seafood. The moules are always good. The staff are helpful and pleasant, although service can be a bit slow as they are almost always very busy. It's worth a wait; just sit back and relax. Sit outside in good... More

I was there for dinner in August and experienced a wonderful fish meal, Oyster were excellent and the huge bouillabaisse even better. Not to say anything about the real French profiteroles: a true delice for greedy gourmets. The only small minus was the service, that - maybe due to the really crowded evening - was a little bit too slow,... More

Ignorant waiter, took ages to get served, my starter came 15 minutes after my wife had finished hers. Lovely food, but expensive. Would never recommend as service was terrible. Been to the sister restaurant la jardin and wasn't much better. Arrogance of the south of France thinking they can treat tourism like this. Didn't leave any tip and the waiter... More

Location is great and watching people walk by is great fun, but that's where the fun stops. Waited 20 minutes to get served and almost the same to get our drinks, which isn't great a hot summer day! The mussels in white wine were good, but nothing special really, have had much more tasty ones. Prices are on higher end... More
