We came for "huitres" as indicated on menu but they were then not available and replaced by others. Service not top for this level of restaurant (water forgotten, service slow)

We were there in April for a family Sunday lunch. We all chose the Menu Saveur and did not regret it. The fish is so fresh it's a real pleasure. All dishes were well presented and the food was tasty. We really enjoyed the restaurant and it's very efficient waiter service. Nice end of a great meal, the owner offered... More

I went to this restaurant with a friend for inpromptu dinner, no reservation. There was plenty of space outside & the terrace is very intimate despite being next to a busy road. The service was a little... odd... and very slow but it was totally worth it. The food is excellent, and 2 courses turned into 4 thanks to the... More

Great little restaurant, not too expensive, great food. Wasn't too busy on our visit but staff were not the most engaging and the service was very slow. Waiting 40 minutes just for a menu. It did quicken slightly towards dessert but that probably had more to do with the staff wanting to finish on time rather than a normal expected... More

Randomly had dinner there with 3 friends, surprised by the quality of the sea food. Seemed a little bit chaotic in the beginning, but everything turned out very well. Fish soup was awesome, oysters and today's catch the same. A very nice cup with anise flavoured ice cream with a little wine came as a very tasty surprise.

Le Gros Ventre is on the waterfront in Mourillon just along the road from the harbour and close to the castle. It's a buzzy little place and we ate outside in May. It wasn't the warmest of evenings but there were five of us there for a rugby match so plenty of banter and lots of alcohol consumed. Service was... More

The restaurant staff was very friendly and welcoming. Though expensive, the dinner was delicious, with many classic French dishes to choose from.

We reserved a table for Sunday lunch with my wife's parents to celebrate a special birthday. My wife selected the restaurant based on her local knowledge of being raised in Toulon and previous experience of the restaurant from many years ago. This small, quiet restaurant is well located opposite Fort Saint-Louis with views of the bay. Like another reviewer, I... More

We ate here having looked at other restaurants in the area and we're so pleased we did! Plenty of locals eating in the restaurant and plenty having the set menus. Such friendly, yet efficient staff too! We tucked into the "Menu Poisson" at 30 Euros per person and it was great value. Sublime smoked salmon, accompanied with kumquat toasts, followed... More

Situated on the beachfront it stands out in terms of quality and value from the other places. Full of locals - always a good sign. May need to book. Recommended.
