Eating lunch a few feet from the sea at Eze was a great experience and worth the premium you must pay for the food and drink which was of a reasonable quality. The service was a bit chaotic with our food being served to another table; resulting in a very long wait. But we are retired and on a... read more

Went for lunch very relaxed beach shack atmosphere. Service is rather slow. However our food did arrive rather quickly and was good. Yes a little overpriced. Somewhat of a trek down from main road but nothing beats being beachside.

papaya was very over priced...but the view did make up for it! although the food was expensive and the portions were small, it was good and fresh. if you are looking for an amazing view and are willing to spend a little extra this is an okay option.

We visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions, both for drinking and eating. The food was really nice however, the menu a little bit limited. I found that we were a bit rushed at the end of the night as they were packing tables away but I doubt this was intentional as the staff were lovely. This is definitely... More

All I can say is that they are lucky that they have the view, because the quality of dodos and service is absolutely horrific. We ordered a salad nicoise and melon and jambon for lunch. Seems impossible to mess up, but nothing was fresh or seemed local because the produce was not ripe at all. Service was terrible and beyond... More

The setting was beautiful - table on the beach at subset. It is a shame the food did not match the location. The Crab tartare was OK but the seafood platter was poor - fried fish which had little flavour and it seemed as though the oil was not hot enough.

Terrific little spot. Had a fantastic burger on the beach and the service was perfect! We came in later in the day when chef was out and the owner jumped in and completely accommodated us. Very kind. Highly recommend!!

A great location with good reviews, but for the 6 of us the food was sadly lacking. The mixed seafood might as well been batter as the deep fried cooking killed all flavour. I was amazed for a French restaurant they cook like a very cheap fish and chip shop.the sea bass was very dry, the salad dry, in general... More
