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!

We simply have to visit this place every summer even though it is a 1.5hr round trip. The food is always tasty and we opt for a wide array of tapas style and have to include the yummy Moules with all the flavour choices. We start with a glass of champagne served on the beach and enjoy the stunning views.... More

Being in Provence allways claims a visit to the charming l'Esquinade on the Pampelonne beaches. The service is professional, but so very friendly. The food is homemade and very tasteful. The restaurant is located on the beach, close to the sea, where the waiters bring you the rest of your wine/beer/water after a good meal, relaxing under the sun beds... More

We visit this beach restaurant on every visit to this area even though it means a 50-minute drive in high season. The venue is shaped like a boat with a Norwegian flag with a pirate theme. Specialties include mussels in over ten possible sauces. Also a coal BBQ of fresh fish and meats. We had a very juicy entrecôte of... More
