“Great restaurant with fabulous views over the yacht marina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This is a restaurant which has become a real institution in Cavalaire. It has had a refurb and looks much smarter than before, but the food is still brilliant quality and the service is really friendly. The place literally buzzes with happy diners of all ages and nationalities. Sitting outside on a warm evening with delicious food and Provencal wine is a memorable experience. In the winter, sit inside and enjoy pasta and more wintry dishes. Don't forget - you may have to queue to get in, but it's worth it!

“Decent pizza, rudest staff in France. Won't be returning.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

After having a decent meal here last year, we were hoping for the same again. Unfortunately it wasn't to be as we were treated in a less than polite manner from the moment we walked in. I can only assume this was because, unlike last year, our party had two infants with us this time.
We requested a table outside with space so as to not disturb other customers, to which the member of staff who first approached us agreed to. Moments later a very rude Frenchman in a polo T-shirt came over and tried to kick us off the table as there wasn't 6 of us.

About 20 mins later, as we were about to tuck into our starters, another man approached and in a very rude tone demanded that we move our pushchairs from where we had parked them as they were encroaching on another table. I could understand the disturbance if there were people at the table or indeed there were customers who wanted to sit there, but there wasn't. The table was vacant the whole time we were there.

The staff saved the best for last though. As we were leaving, two more male members of staff came to clear our table. Granted, we'd left a bit of a mess as is expected when dining with young kids, but the older man (who was curiously dressed in chef whites) started ranting in an angry manner in French. Unfortunately for him, my wife speaks fluent French and translated every word. I won't repeat what was said but needless to say he was extremely insulting. His colleague noticed that my wife was translating and urged his older colleague to stop insulting us, but the man just looked up and insisted that we had left. He was wrong, we were still there.

We come here every year and won't be going back. Nor will we be going to the other places owned by the same people.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

If you want to have a simple but good meal, go to pizzaiole. The pizza's have a nice thin crust and fresh ingredients, and the mussels and fries are good too. It's a bit noisy though, so probably not the best place for a romantic dinner. View on the harbour.
