We visited L'Emeraude twice on a recent trip to Cavalaire-sur-mer. On both occasions the service was excellent, the prawns were huge and the wine flowed spectacularly. Would recommend the lobster and prawn special to all.

We chose L'Emeraude for a 'special evening', however, we were slightly disappointed. We had to wait quite long for the first waiter, then we had three different ones, any of them believing obviously that the other one was taking care of us... My fish was a little burnt and hence dry, Moules were fine (as usual), the fish soup (17€)... More

We ate in L'Emeraude this evening. Having read the poor previous reviews I felt duty bound to write on a very positive experience. My partner and I eat out a lot and have done our share of Michelin starred restaurants. Forget many of the old previous reviews, this place is smart, beautifully presented, the staff were more than attentive and... More

We eat here 'for a treat' when in the area. The fish and seafood excellent - fresh, cooked just right, well presented. Staff usually friendly and helpful, which sadly isn't always the case in France these days.

If your idea of good food is fish & chips or hamburger & salad, please go elsewhere or you will be disappointed. I have been there with my wife last August, as I always do if I happen to be within 100 km from this place (unfortunately only once a year or even less). Although we arrived for dinner without...

Worst meal I've had in years. Fish soup tasted like someone had boiled my son's sports kit for several hours in a vat of diesel oil. Moule saltier than the sea, but no other disernable taste. My son had grilled squid which looked and tasted like still born voles. Entire meal repulsive. Avoid.

We visited this restaurant with a party of four. From the start, the arrogant waitress made us ferl uncomfortable - taking our orders without the move of a facial muscle after 30 minutes of waiting time. Spending several hundred Euros, we had expected that someone would pour the wine into our glasses, but both wine and water bottle were dumped... More

We were staying in the Port of Cavalaire-Sur-Mer and decided to try L'Emeraude for dinner. It looks rather a formal restaurant with colour co-ordinated furnishings and staff. However, we enjoyed very courteous and efficient service and an extremely good dinner. We shall certainly return when visiting the Port in future.
