Great dinner

The staff at our hotel recommended Le Jardin des Delices and we were not disappointed...My husband had the scallops which were excellent and the potato dish accompanying them was one of his favorites. I had a "kettle" full of mussels, scallops and shrimp in a light cream sauce. It was great and... read more

This is right on the seafood and we chose this by chance as it looked good. Good guess! we had the most excellent lunch. The platter was really good as was the fish soup. Service relaxed and friendly too.

All too often, seafront cafes fall into the pattern of chips-with-everything and anonymous battered fish: not here. This is one of some 15 restaurants lining the road beside the marina: we took advice from a local and walked perhaps 300 yards from the 'centre' to find it. Madame greeted us warmly and, having given us menus, soon brought us the... More

There are many restaurants to choose from in Saintes Maries. We walked the length of the seafront, and this seemed the most inviting. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. So good that we came back again in the evening. Only grumble - a few midges if you sit outside in the evening.

Lunched here and the seafood could not have been fresher. The staff are friendly and attentive and the service is very good. We had lunch in the conservatory area at the front of the restaurant with a very good view of the sea which is just over the road. It was a good location because we had planned a boat... More

Nice fresh ingredients and well presented. Tables outside looking over the harbour, near to the boats leaving for the river trips.

It's no surprise the fish at this restaurant is fantastic, being just metres away from where you can see the fisherman coming in with their catch. A great spot on the seafront. Beutifully served (albeit a bit fancy on a slate!) Staff very attentive and polite. The steak on the menu was very good, portion sizes however were slightly on... More

Very nice place where to eat on the seafront of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. May be it's quite a tourists place but we had a fish-based lunch and the food was excellent and of prime quality. We ate oysters too and they were special!! We were fou, we had three course + the dessert each and a bootle of wine, but we didn't... More

we were in the village walking in the streets full of souvenirs shopping, looking for a good fish restaurant. We have been suggested by local people to leave the crowded streets of the center going 300 m. far along the sea (just in front of the harbour). we had a delicious dinner based on fresh and well cooked fishes in...

We went twice to this restaurant, having decided after first having had lunch there that we wanted to try other dishes in the evening. Everything was really fresh, in particular the oysters and shellfish which were some of the tastiest I ever had. A good address for seafood lovers.
