Visited here numerous times whilst in Toulon working. Cannot fault the place. Excellent location,friendly staff and great,tasty portion sizes. Really busy so if you have a large party good idea to book.

Very popular and busy harbour front restaurant. Don't expect fine dining, the tables are close together and the place had an air of controlled mayhem while we were there, but the food was good, the service was excellent, the prices reasonable and the tables around us full of locals who had popped in for lunch.Portions are large, too! I had... More

Worst culinary experience in all France. We had food we weren't able to eat. The octopus salad was of a low quality and taste, same as the fish we had for second. The beer and wine temperature was not fine, it was warm. We paid the bill and left with the plates full.

We were rather happy with our experience at La Tortue. The portions were large, and most main courses were served with a side of fresh salad. We did not order any muscles, even though it seemed that everyone else at the restaurant did. We had Beef Carpaccio and Salmon Tartar for appetizers, Chicken with three cheese sauce and Coeur de...

As a beer snob, I have found nothing in France that compares to the Craft beers in the USA, but the food here is another thing. Was recommended this place by a local lady whom I trust. When we arrive the place was packed and had to wait about 10 minutes. Our waiter could speak English, which was very nice....although... More

Arrived here just as the kitchen was closing but the staff helped us make a quick choice so we were able to have a meal at our leisure. Range of food varied, quality excellent and service first class at a reasonable price
