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

We enjoy L'Oursin in the summer for casual lunches in the square and it is so cosy indoors in the winter, with its nautical decor.The staff are friendly and helpful, wines reasonable prices (for Cote d Azur) and such tasty fresh seafood. Their Utah oysters were the best I have had since being in Normandy. Best dish this time was... More

I cannot miss a dinner chez l'Oursine in Antibes when I pass there. Fabolous and wide choice of raw shells, good wines, tasty fish, warm a friendly atmosphere of Cote d'Azure. Not bad surprises, no frills, no show. A safe and reliable address for a great pleasure
