Great mussels, great location

Great mussels, big portions, really recommended. However, the staff speaks very little english so be ready to use body language. Location is great, right across from the beach. :)

We booked a table online as we had tried a couple of nights to get in but was always too busy. The evening we finally went we were actually ignored for about 15 minutes before even being offered a menu or asked what we would like to drink. When we finally did get a menu after getting their attention to... More

My dish was just average, but the mussels were delicious. The service was pretty good. They forgot our bread and it took quite a while to get our check even though we asked for it several times.

One of the prettier places on the Med seafront. However, the food for the price was only okay and the main dishes pretty basic. The starters and desserts were quite good. The staff were less friendly than most of the places we have been to on the Med; but perhaps that was due to their serving our pre-dinner drinks well... More

We happened to lunch here by chance. The food was of great quality and portions overall were very generous. Waiting times can be a bit long, but other 'local' people there seemed to be aware of this. Our waitress was super nice even though we didn't speak french and she didn't speak english... Tip: don't leave without trying the desserts,... More

At first glance La Caravelle doesn't look anything special - we walked right past it initially. We came back, checked the menu and then had a really good meal. We enjoyed avocado and prawns, soupe de poisson, turkey, grilled lamb and sea food vol au vent. We had a nice bottle of rose from Aix de Provence and for dessert... More

Positives: - good serving - great choice - good location Negatives: - veal steak was overcooked - waiting time can be excessive at times - staff inconsistent (some are careful and nice while others don't care) a good place for some simple and not fancy. Very local yet it does the southern charm. A good thing would be to simplify... More

Our second time back in Cagne sur Mer and we went back to La Caravelle after finding it last June. The plat de jour options are still excellent value, although prices have risen slightly since last year - we chose the cheapest of 3 prices at E17.50 (reduced, probably due to the time of year from E19.50) which had 5/6...

A restaurant for the gourmands. Generous portions and good service combined with a reasonable "addition" to finish with.
