My husband and I had dinner here last night. We were promptly greeted, welcomed and seated. The gentleman who greeted us spoke English and seemed very accommodating to us. I had read previous reviews that reported that Americans weren't welcome but that was not the case for us. He was lovely. The meal was wonderful and the portions served as... More

Friendly staff, and quick service. Mains are ok and portions generous, the chocolate ice cream though disappointed me, the whipped cream tasted like the spray bottles one. Anyway it looked like the best of the waterfront.

One of the few nice places on the harbour, this place was packed in a Friday night so we were glad we'd booked. The food is generally very good, the ice creams for dessert particularly so. Service was very fast if a little brusque, but then it was a very busy night. Nice atmosphere, I'm sure we'd return when next... More

This restaurant on the port was constantly full, there were people waiting to get a table, which means that it must be good, right!!!!!!! We managed to eat here twice in our stay. Chicken with the most amazing sauce, huge salads, fabulous chatty friendly staff, beautiful location, a must if you are in Toulon.

Had lunch today at La Tortue. This was the only restaurant on the port which was full. We managed to squeeze to the only empty table next to 2 delightful French ladies. We had the Formule Salade - 12 euros for La Tortue salade, dessert and cafe. We were also given the choice of a cafe gourmand. What a fantastic... More

Location at the port is attractive. It is very busy, even midweek in mid September. We found the young female staff helpful and charming. During our visit the majority of diners were ordering salad starters followed by steaks with chips. Portions were huge (some might say excessive), especially the steaks and chips. Prices were relatively modest considering portion sizes but... More

If you want to eat sensibly and have a fillet do not go to this restaurant. Good location, terrible arrogant service and their boeuf beef was as elastic as a piece of rubber or leather. When we complained head waiter told us not to take any dessert and came running with the bill. It's a pity that the head waiter... More
