We ate magret de canard for lunch a couple of weeks ago, and it was delicious. The portion of duck was very generous. It was a very warm, sunny day, so we ate outside and enjoyed the bustle of a busy midweek autumn day in the old town of Antibes, where l'Oursin is situated.

My boyfriend and I had some oysters and salmon to start and then risotto with mussels. Our starters didn't arrive at the same time. Oysters tasted fine but the risotto was overcooked and bland. Possibly there were some bad mussels as both of us spent the rest of the evening vomiting. The service was poor. We ordered a bottle of... More

Delicious fresh seafood in the old town. I ordered the oysters and the sea bass - both were delicious. It was quite busy so make a reservation if you can. I went at about 8.30pm without a reservation and was fortunate to be seated straight away but most tables appeared occupied. The wine choice is limited but otherwise good. Service... More

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.
