We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and they made the reservation for us. It doesn't look of much when you enter, but the food is absolutely divine. There were local people with their children as well as tourists, and you know, that when there is local people dining there, then it has to be good, and that it... More

I went here for the first time a few weeks ago. This is the best place in town for regional specialities - their tarte au citron is second to none. It's quite small so it's a good idea to book in advance if you want to go in peak season.

After being recommended to this restaurant I can't help but come away disappointed after eating here. Initially greeted with a warm but superficial welcome we were seated at a good table. When we came to order and management saw only a light bite was wanted interest and service waited For the price point, food selection and location, give this one... More

My wife and both had "Loup de Mer", sea bass. It was excellent, perfectly cooked, succulent and fresh. Clean food, no sauces, marinades or other things that could mask mediocre quality. The fish was served with simple fresh vegetables and roast potato The location is OK, with a busy road nearby and cars parked next to it, but as the... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotelier at the Napoleon. It was so good we went twice. The service was second to none and very friendly. Le maitre was most charming and had a real passion for his food My wife has a severe allergy to dairy and eggs and so it is usually so difficult to accommodate her.... More

We had a lovely lunch at Le Petit Port. I highly recommend the Turbo. The atmosphere and service were wonderful. The owner, Gabby Santucci, and his family are very welcoming. The menu has a good variety. I recommend lunch at Le Petit Port for a relaxing lunch for those avoiding the usual tourist haunts.

Le Petit Port is a small family run restaurant. A bit on the pricey side, but most dishes are worth the money, especially the fish. The salmon and tuna tartare was good, the "thon snacké" was an excellent main course, as was the lemon and basil cake for dessert, with basil ice cream as a nice touch. Huge cake. Decent... More

I was attracted to this restaurant because they offered beef with a morel mushroom sauce. As a mushroom enthusiast I was keen to try their offering. It did not disappoint. In addition, the staff were very friendly and helpful with things like the wine selection. Communication was easy despite my limited French.

From delicious appetizers (figues farcis and soupe de poisson) to an incredible main course (St. Pierre), paired with wonderful wine: simply amazing! While the desert could've been more creative, craftsmanship was excellent. Just about anything you'd expect to make a visit to this nice restaurant a wonderful experience.

Food standard was good, but prices generally a tad higher than the norm. We however had a grat night. This place was recommended by the hotel btw.
