A nice charming 'port' restaurant with reasonably priced food and good atmosphere. The fish of the day was fresh and accompanied by an assortment of good vegetables. Servers were friendly, but service could be slow between courses. Not sure why, as there were plenty of staff on hand. Seemed popular with locals.

We come here every year and has always been a favourite of ours when we visit Meze. This year, however, we were not impressed. The food was fine but the service has gone seriously downhill. Our starter plates were left infront of us for so long I had to pick them up so that our main course could be put... More

My husband and I ordered a pizza and wine. The server, then owner, told us we had to order two entrees. No other pizzeria in France (or Italy) has required us to order 2 pizzas. Then when we paid, the owner said his credit card machine was (suddenly) broken, and we needed to pay in cash.

Clearly a popular place with the locals - always a good sign. Good food at the right price and speedily served.

Service a little iffy but we went here twice and food was really nice and with the set 3 course menu under €15 it is ridiculously cheap especially when the wine is also so reasonable six of us went last night and the bill was € 127. Definitely worth going.

The menu sounded like good value for money. It's in a great setting, right by the little harbour and there's a big car park next door. The food was average and the service well below average. We chose this restaurant as it offered a variety of food to suit everyone.

We visited here on our first night in Meze, a busy Saturday, and felt that the service was good and the food good value and tasty. Pizzas were especially nice. Unfortunately on our return on the Friday before we left, we experienced ridiculously long waits for our drinks and food. Yes they were busy, but the waiters also did a... More

This is rapidly becoming one of our favourite restaurants that has an increasing popularity with locals and tourists alike. Enjoy food and wine in a cosy setting on the port. A warm welcome from all the staff enhances the 'feel-good-factor'. The 3-course 'formule' menu, available lunchtime and evenings, is great value at 14.50€. Eric, the boss, caters for your every...
