Ate from the just under €30 set menu on the first visit. We enjoyed it so much we went the next night for the same menu and after trying and being disappointed by another restaurant returned and ate from the under €20 set menu on the final night. Oysters were always well prepared and the starter of... read more

It's only been a week and I can't even remember what I had. Probably fish. Another in the series of overpriced, hopelessly bourgeois tourist restaurants of southern France...

I'm so glad my friend did some research before our visit to Sete and recommended us this place. Everything was simply lovely! The lady was very friendly, explaining to us the menu in English. And the food was really really good! Our fish, oysters and calamaris were really fresh! Its only natural we left the place completely full and happy.... More

A local steered us here and we were absolutely delighted. Brimming with charm and complemented by an extensive menu, it is a real gem among the other places on the waterfront. The seafood was excellent and the portions were really generous. I'm still thinking about it. Reservations are probably a must; we watched a small parade of disappointed people turned... More

It is very hard to decide which restaurant to pick on the main street. We made a great choice, based on pure instinct! Price was good, service was friendly and food was excellent.

We had a perfect lunch here, and wish we could just sit and wait for dinner. The food was some of the best we experienced during our time in France and have promised ourselves a prompt return.

This is an excellent restaurant in midst of many others; therefore complicated to pick out first time. It is specialized on local food, which is prepared and offered very personally. We would surely com back if we were in the region.

On the strip neer the canal a nice small restaurant. Do not expect haute michelin star cuisine but a very decent meal in nice atmosphere. Not too overtouristicy and in your face like a lot of the other places nearby. Nice place good food friendly helped.

Do not miss the "Sepions a la persillade" which are a kind of baby squid and the "creme catalane" a local desert. The place is charming and it looks like the family is running the restaurant. They are very friendly with a good service and a great menu.
