Haven't been there in a while but: still a great experience! Oceanview, restaurant is styled like a ship, friendly service, quite fast, great food (I'd for sure do recommend the "Daurade grillé" Just overall a perfect place! For the weekend I'd recommend reservations! Looking forward to come back in november!

One of the best places on earth. Any thinkable food, cocktail, ocean view at any given time! This is the best place you'll ever get to eat on. I've been everywhere never seen alike... Enjoy!

I came here soon after arriving and I was very impressed with the quality and range of seafood. I had king prawns/langoustines and they were some of the best I've ever had! Delicious. Cool venue- quite 'quirky' - one of the best restaurants in town imo.

If you're looking for a nice seafood lunch or winding down drinks in the afternoon, Lagon 1 is one of the best locations. Even in the warm period there is always a breeze above the water.
