“Great atmosphere, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Great place, we had a lot of fun and atmosphere and decoration are really nice. Wasn't too impressed by the food but a few of my friends were more optimistic.

“Lively ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Although not a cheap family meal, the atmosphere,especially at night makes up for it. The menu is mercifully shortish so what is delivered is fresh and well prepared. Simple pasta and pizza dishes augmented with more sophisticated sea food dishes . Service efficient and not at all pushy despite the popularity of the place which overlooks the marina.

“Second Visit to this Well Located Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is the second time we've chosen to eat here on the first night of our holiday in Sainte Maxime. The food is reasonable although can be a little more expensive than other places - perhaps we're paying a little premium for such a great location?

The service wasn't the best we'd experienced in Sainte Maxime; we had to ask for the bill twice but I'm being picky. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived and they took our order and delivered our food quickly enough.

I would recommend this restaurant to others, particularly if you're in to people watching!

“has been open when other restaurants have been closed for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We have visited Cafe de Paris by accident, as many other restaurants have closed their”doors” for lunch, so there were no many other options, but we were happy with this one.
The location is perfect; you can sit and enjoy sea view and people passing by.

We were travelling together with kids, so kids and my husband had pizza and they said that it has been the best pizza during our trip. I had aioli, which has been offer of the day. Aioli was a dish with a fish, mussels and vegetables. It was not bad, neither excellent. Aioli itself was delicious, but fish was a little bit too dry.

The service was good and friendly. Kids got some coloring pages, so they had something to do before waitress brought us food.
