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.

This is a restaurant worth returning to. Consistently the very best fish properly prepared with mouth watering tartare sauce. This occasion we shared the 42€ fish plate that was very generous and wonderful. A great selection including whole grilled Dorade, Trawl fish, scallops, calamari, red mullet, prawns. Desert was easy to choose with the souffle Grand Marnier Triple Sec!! The... More

We visited again and were delighted with the quality of the food. Do not expect to be bowed in and out as you are likely to be disappointed. The waiting staff are very stiff but the food is really why you should visit. We started with Calamari which was good to share and followed with Turbot. There is no choice... More

The location in front of the sea is just marvelous as for the rest...... to be discussed. This restaurant is living from a past glory!!!! The food might be good but not excellent! Nothing special which is very expensive!!!!!! At lunch time they are in a hurry to close at 2. pm, thus you are not comfortable at all. The... More
