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

We have noticed this restaurant during our stay in Antibes. The last night was devoted to this place and surely with no regret. My wife had the Sea Food Mix as a starter with lemon and Tabsco sauce. It was the minor portion, but so delicious and it presented it self fantastic. We had a drink on the house due... 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

Every meal our family had here was just average-nothing spectacular as far as our burger, mussels, gazpacho, or salmon. But the prices were pretty high (14 euros for cold tomato soup?) and our waiter was extremely unfriendly. He wouldn't smile at us or acknowledge when our kids were ordering-he'd simply roll his eyes, ignore their order, and look to us... More

This restaurant is just off the square. It serves fresh seafood and delicious modules (mussels) with chips. My kids really loved their battered fish kids meals, enough to go back two days later. Service was fair but not overly attentive Nd the meal felt satisfying and tasty, and a small victory given the pickiness of my small kids. My heart,... More

This was recommended to us by our hotel so we went at lunchtime. Firstly after being seated it took 15 mins to get a menu (and the place was not busy), then a further 10 to order our food. The Harry Hill look a like waiter was grumpy. Order was given and the food came out, I had mussels as... More
