Service was slow, waited for the food for 2 hours because there was some kind of mixup. Food was below average, oysters were the only good thing we got. In the end we had to wait for a long time so we could pay.

We were looking for a specialist shellfish and fish restaurant and happened upon this. Great decor inside. Perfect central position. The best oysters I have ever had!

Because we had a late dinner the square where this restaurant is located was quieter and more charming than usual. The owner and the staff looked after us very well. The seafood was delicious.

We stopped and ate outside for lunch, just saw it and thought we would give it a try. That was for lunch and now tonight we are going to try it for dinner too. Really fresh seafood and well presented with friendly staff st a great price for seafood.

I truly believe other travellers have had an amazing time at L'oursin. After all, the restaurant has it all going for it. The inside is superbly decorated, really feels like you are in a ship. The seafood stand at the front door is also a feast for the eyes! However, me and my girlfriend have had a regular experience with... More

Beautiful fish on display attracted us to this restaurant, nice interior but the cooking lacked any sense of imagination. Chef doesn't know how to season fish. My sea bass had no seasoning. Assorted vegetables and potato on plate made this a totally forgettable meal. Didn't stay for desert. Give this restaurant a skip.

Delicious and straightforward seafood. Great selection of fresh oysters, whelks, mussels etc., good seafood pasta and risotto. Pleasant and comfortable surroundings. Friendly but slightly slow service.

This is our second visit to this lovely seafood restaurant in the heart of the town just off the market. The atmosphere is very French and the food is delicious. Love the fish soup and the shell fish towers complimented with a fine wine.

We have walked through Antibes many times and had noticed the oyster bar in the Rue de la Republique but had not realised that behind the bar was a very good fish restaurant. Where we ate was most pleasant and resembled the interior of a ship. As with a number of restaurants in the area, at this time of the... More
