Great seafood

This street restaurant is just off the main square. It serves great seafood. Just great. The prices are reasonable. You only need to order one entree or one main course as the plates are large. The walk a few meters down the street for an ice cream dessert.

Booked table for 9pm and when arrived very busy so encouraged. Howeve r it took over 1hr to receive (cold) starters then a further hour for main courses after numerous enquiries. Whilst waiting additional drinks ordered were not delivered. Eventually it was explained to us that the chef was working with only 2 burners (instead of 6) but little in... More

We went for the oyesters, these were good and price was ok, but then the fish (sea bass) was very expensive. OK it was 1.2 kg but still... we didn't take any bottle of wine, just beer and a glass of wine, and ended up paying around 150€ for two persons. I can't complain about the service or quality, but...

Accidentally stumbled upon this hidden gem in Antibes and decided to give it a try. Food was fabulous and fresh, oysters, shrimps, mussels, sea bass & sea bream was all brilliant. I feel that this restaurant is highly underrated on Tripadvisor. Probably best price/quality ratio in town.

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. We took one of the menus and started with mussels, which were excellent. Then thuna and sea bream, both excellent. Well presented on large plates with fresh... More

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

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.
