“Cote d'Azur Seafood With a View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is a super place for combining people-watching with great fresh seafood. It's a family run restaurant on the main ocean front Cote d'Azur thoroughfare. The family owns its own fishing boat and serves up its own catch daily. The food is subperb. We went for lunch and enjoyed a leisurely 3 hours of outdoor dining and people watching in the French style of such culinary events. We ate fresh tasty raw oysters, fried calamari and fried zucchini flowers for appetizers, loup du mer and turbot for fresh catches of the day. Service was excellent. We saw celebrities and they saw us. The water was Cote d'Azur blue, the sun was shining and the food gods were smiling.

“Awsome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Spent 8 days touring the French Riviera from Menton to St Tropez. Found this restaurant in Cagnes sur mer where we were based. Stood out from all others - service, expertise, FOOD and surroundings. Very, very impressive. Attention to detail was faultless. Highly recommended.

“Passionate owners make the difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

This family-run restaurant runs very well, very professional, and serves very good sea-food in a fairly traditional setting, if you discount the art on the walls. It is not particularly cheap, but as the quality is generally very good, it is worthwhile and fair value for money. Wine list is not that extensive, but good enough - saves a lot of time. Not much choice if you are not into fish and seafood.

“Best oysters, great loabsters, delicious fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Classic oyster bar of Cote D'Azur, pleasant, crowded and chatty atmosphere where to taste the best oysters and great grilled loabsters or giant soles. Pricey but worthwhile, much better than similar spots in Nice

“Good fish & poor service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

We came at night looking for a nice dinner. Was hard to decide where to seat because most of the open restaurant were almost empty. The staff did not welcomes us so nice, but was late and we decided to stay. It was worth because the the fish that we ordered was very good cooked and taste, the Nicoise salad was also very good
