This is one of many along the beach but was recommended by campsite couriers and we have always loved it. We book and ask for a table by the sea. Nothing is cheap in S France but food is good and location great. It is banged together in a nautical shabby chic hippy sort of way. We have seen people... More

This restaurant was about a 20 minute walk from the Les Tournels site we were staying at. Fantastic location for both day and night. We visited on an evening and were seated very swiftly. Very busy restaurant but a relaxing atmosphere over looking the sea and the moon setting in the distance. We had sardines and a pork rib both... More

Great restaurant right on the beach with views out to sea full of super yachts. Lots of character, decor is very rustic and full of marine bric-a-brac. Service was attentive and efficient and food very good, lots of fresh sea food washed down with chilled local rosé. Not rushed, all very relaxed. Prices - not high for Pampelonne. More character...

We liked this restaurant for it's location at the shoreside, it's cosy and shabbychic looking pirate's house, and it's fantastic seafood. We were six persons coming for mussels - "moules" - and other seafood for our lunch. They had moules in several sauces, we tried them in toamato sauce and in roquefort sauce. They were really tasty and excellently prepared.... More

Scallop, big shrimp, oyster so fresh. the ambience of this restaurant is so relaxing. We first sat outside then it was very cold then we move to inside. they only have 3 server compare to 30 tables inside and outside so the food came little bit slow but the dish worth waiting.

Our concierge sent us to the Cabane Bamboo or something, in spite of his having said he called to make us a reso (thanks Villa Maria - do Not stay there!) it was closed, so we found this place. I was here with my husband and parents. My Mom and I loved it - our husbands thought it was tacky.... More

Everything was perfect. They were busy, but the service was very attentive. The moules were excellent ad was the calamari. I would love to go back in the summer, at night, to try other dishes....I loved this place!
