4 of us visited this restaurant at lunchtime on a Friday, we were catching up as we hadn't seen each other for a long time. We arrived at the restaurant, were seated very quickly and then the waitress tried to take our order more or less before we had seen the menu!! We needed more time so had an aperitif... More

I have been a regular at the Moussaillon for quite a number of years, and have never been disappointed. Absolutely fantastic fresh seafood, nicely prepared and served, and some excellent local wines. Nice friendly staff also.

We decided to eat at this restaurant last Sunday lunchtime as we had eaten here before and had excellent food. We were not disappointed this time. Having decided we didn't want the full 3 or 4 course meal we opted for the Sea Bream with Hollandaise sauce which came with vegetables and rice. The fish was delicious and my husband... More

We dropped in here early one evening to have some oysters before going on to another restaurant. The oysters here are wonderful and with a nice glass of cold white wine it was a good start to an enjoyable evening.

We stopped for lunch on a sunny afternoon and had a very pleasant meal. The service was excellent, the food was very nicely prepared and plentiful, and we thought it was excellent value for the money. We would definitely return if we were in the area again.

Excellent and very popular restaurant at the Port de Plaisance in Meschers. Menu is extensive and varied. Cooking is good and service excellent. Sit outside or inside depending on the weather.

We have been visiting this restaurant for the last 20 years & have found it to be a typical family run French eatery. The same family have had it for all that time & some of the staff have also worked for them for a considerable number of years. The food is fairly basic but usually well presented & cooked.... More

We visited at the end of August for an important meal with family guests. Initial service was good - the child's starters arrived within five minutes. After that everything collapsed. Our main courses were forgotten. After a VERY long wait the waiter and the manager merely said that the chef was having a bad day. Two main courses had obviously... More
