Just not that good

The waiter suggested some specials, and we wanted to share one of them. He encouraged us to order two. This was a mistake because the portions were large and expensive and we did not even finish them. The fish just wasn't that good.

This restaurant is on the street that is next to the beach, does not stand out from the restaurant around, but the food is very good. Great service very nice wine and not cheap.

Food is good if typically South of France pricey. Mainly fresh fish. The outside terrace is also pleasant and surprisingly peaceful despite being very close to the main road. Unfortunately the owner is also a tyrant so if you have any problems expect to be treated accordingly. This also rubs off on the other staff who seem to be in... More

We ate in the rear of the terrace. It was still rather noisy but caused by the traffic noise and loudspeakers at the beach, not other clients. The place was practically empty for our entire Saturday lunch. The wife of the chef took our order and seemed quite impatient. She did not look happy answering our several questions about the...

Excellent value for the Lunch menu 27€. Very nicely prepared food served in a professional way. A good address compared to the series of bad restaurants on the sea shore at Saint Laurent du Var.

We came here for lunch with a friend last week. It was our second choice, our first being closed for their annual holidays, and we had been disappointed here before. As before it is an attractive place, both on the terrace or in the room. However, whether due to having lost their Michelin star, or due to criticism here or... More
