There are so many restaurants to choose from in this town, so going where the crowds are, is usually a good way to choose.
The day I went their set meal is a couscous and 4 meat dish which everyone else in the place was...having and which looked amazing. I didn't feel up to that many different meats though so I opted for the fish formule.
Fish was perfectly cooked with a white sauce and there was some delicious grilled zucchini accompanying. Dessert was a gorgeous tarte pomme with a dab of whipped cream.
Service was excellent and the location right on the water can't be beat.More
I visited this restaurant in August with my family while we were on holiday. We come to Sanary every year on holiday and this is by far the best restaurant we have visited. The atmosphere was amazing and the service was excellent!! The menu is...extremely varied. You can choose from fish, meats and moules. I ordered the moules and they were delicious! The portions are also extremely generous. I’d definitely recommend visiting if you are in the area. You won’t be disappointed!!More
The three of us ordered three different kinds of seafood platters and we were not disappointed. The preparation was swift, the meals were perfectly cooked and the 50 cl bottle of rose was perfectly paired with our various seafood dishes.
The large platters of gambas...and fish were served with rice and a small salad. The results were three clean plates, the sauces and delicate Provencal flavors having been mopped up with bread. As for price-performance, we all had wonderful meals for a fair price! We'll return to L'Hippocampe another day!More
Nice atmosphere overlooking the port, friendly welcome and staff were lovely with our children. Food was good but not amazing, came extremely quickly (on this occasion this was good as the kids were with us, perhaps why they were so rapid!). No complaints a fair...priced family meal.More
But... Sanary is being extensively dug up which ruins the view and puts lots of dust on the tables. Had to send one starter back as not properly cooked but it was promptly and courteously replaced. Overall the food was interesting and tasty and service...good.More
Having reserved a table, and found all the other tables taken when we arrived, we assumed we would have a good meal. 15 minutes later we were still waiting to be acknowledged. The waitress resembled a surly teenager. 45 minutes later we still had no...wine, no bread, and no starters . Two bowls of luke-warm fish soup finally arrived which we sent back, only to be told we were wrong! At this point we decided to leave. The bill included the soup, which we had not eaten, and the restaurant insisted we should pay for it. We left 10 euros for the aperitifs and left. Never again.More
It´s always difficult to pick a place if you are in a town you don´t know. We picked the Hippocampe because we liked the menu, the pricing, the location and look.
When we arrived it was very quiet, just one more table with tourists. Changed...very fast and the restaurant started to fill very quickly. The place seems to be popular, good sign. Efficient and fast service (friendly? Not sure), good food, bill as expected,
We had menues, arrived quickly. Starters: fish soup was not really hot. Microwave? Still good. Very good tomato tatar! Main dishes good as well, forgot though what we had.More
