Superb food with great view

This is a great restaurant, with great food (3 course set meal for €29.50) and friendly staff, all the time just a couple of meters from the marina sea. Not the cheapest, but great quality and very well cooked and presented.

The food, wine and service was excellent and we felt very good value if you go for the set meal ( 29 Euros for three courses). Not all the staff speak English and the menu is in french.

Didn't check on this before we went so really pleased to see it is #17 it deserves it. Excellent meal and good value. Very pleasant waitress gave us good service with a smile. Very good chips( perhaps triple cooked?) fish cooked perfectly, excellent mussels as a starter. Would recommend.

We, having ordered in advance, a bit early for the tourist season, aprox. 60 people had the restaurant to ourselves this evening. The personnel served us quick and well. We lacked nothing. As a starter we had delicious gratinated scallops, main course was Charolais Rumpsteak with foie gras sauce. Also very good and tasty. As dessert we had a "dessert... More

L'Hippocampe was certainly the best restaurant I experienced during my holidays in Southern France. I had wonderful Foie Gras as a starter and really outstanding rougets with Ratatouille and an absolutely perfect sauce (probably one of the best dishes I ever had in France). Very good and friendly service and nicely situated at the port. The value for the money... More
