On the sea front with good views....great place to 'people watch'. French cuisine at its best. Delicious sea food & meats. Reasonably priced wine list. Excellent lunch before our return to UK.

This has to be the worst service we have had in years. The food at Charlotte 1er is good however expensive. The service is just rude and arrogant. The owner struts around ignoring all non-French and frankly only has time for the Monaco set. I have visited this restaurant on at least 15 occasions however, there are better places nearby....

At this restaurant you can really experience the worst of what France can offer in service. An unfriendly lady-owner will take the order, although I speak very good French we get the all inclusive tourist treatment of un-politeness, the waiters will throw your food on the table. If you enjoy very salty food this is the place. The experience was... More

This restaurant has excellent fresh fish and seafood of top quality. We had one of the bests soles we have had in many years with a wonderful Chateau Saint Roseline white wine. We will return for sure.

I'm not a huge fan of fish restaurants but once again I was out voted! I took the view of if you can't beat them - join them Sea bass for me. Very mild delicate flavours. Fresh ingredients such as cherry tomatoes, herbs and lemon. Nothing too overpowering. Our friends shared a massive sharing platter which looked impressive. Quite expensive.... More

I was invited for work so I didn't pay for the meal but the atmosphere was really genuine and not pretencious and the raw seafood platter was the freshest I've ever had in a restaurant. Just delightful! Great white Chablis was not bad eirher. I strongly recommend! but don't know the prices.

Charlot 1er isn't going to win any prizes for being anything other than a very good, standard French seafood restaurant. It's smart, not trendy & the staff are briskly efficient. Prices are comparatively steep for the area but portions are generous & the quality of the food justify the expense. We had sea bass & sea bream, simply cooked with... More

I think this place needs a revamp, the food was OK, but expensive. Frankly it was full of older people, who all seemed to know each other and came every week.
