Great food and views

Food was really good and the views were exceptional. I really enjoyed the menu and the only downside was the service was a little slow. I will return as I think the food is worth it.

Wonderful views, impeccable service, delicious food. What more could you ask for? Oh, a great wine list too. The combination of sweetbreads and lobster looked, and tasted, wonderful. The sole was delicious, the amuses bouches amazing, definitely worth another visit to try to scrumptious things we missed first time round.

Booked well in advance, we had a table with a fantastic view. The restaurant is everything that has been previously described – we braved the a la carte menu (brave as it isn't cheap) but all was prepared beautifully as you would expect! My langoustine were sublime, the lamb that followed was perfect… and so the meal continued. One complaint... More

The meal myself and my partner had here was amazing. The staff were so attentive and knowledgeable. It obviously comes at a cost but one I think is very much worth it.

We had the special chef menu with many wonderful dishes, cheeses and dessert. The wine pairings were adequate, but nothing special. The dessert wine was not bold enough for the selections. Unfortunately, our ability to smell our wines and fully taste the food were ruined when a French woman doused in terrible perfume was seated right next to us and... More

Les Trois Forts has an amazing view over the harbor and delicious food to complement the experience. I enjoyed a cold mullet starter on the recommendation of my waiter, a wonderful main course of turbot on a bed of beans and a noisette tart with marscapone ice cream. The choice of dishes was a challenge, as everything looked very inviting... More

This restaurant has a fantastic view of the sea and fort. The service is stuffy and hit or miss, the English skills are lacking so maybe this contributed to confusion among the waitstaff. The food is expensive but not worth the price, you are paying for the view. If you are looking for an impressive view this is your spot,... More

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive for our supper here. They have a very good wine list as well. The view of the port at night was gorgeous, adding to an enjoyable meal. It's a 5-star hotel, so of course I expect it to be good, and it was.
