It's one of the best restaurants in the area and recommended by the Michelin guide. Great menu, great service and not too expensive. The location is perfect. Well worth a visit!

This was another mixed experience where the restaurant didn't live up to Trip Advisor ratings. It started badly with the waiter bring a large platter of fresh fish to our table. Perhaps it was one excursion too many from the kitchen, but, they were smelly. The amuse bouche of tomato and spinach roulade was flavoursome and light. The seasonal vegetable... More

We loved this restaurant – it was a higher end option for us (35 Euro menu) – and we enjoyed it very much. We were three meat eaters and one vegetarian (who eats fish) and they very kindly and aptly accommodated me (the vegetarian) with the most scrumptious fish dishes. The staff were down to earth and very helpful. We... More

We stopped in at La Gaffe for lunch on our outing to St Florent and had a delicious meal. They have a lunch special which at 25euro is a superb way to experience their food over 3 courses - each course has 3 very tempting options. We started with the seafood and the pork/veal terrine, followed by the fish of... More

Excellent friendly service in very pleasant surroundings, indoor and outdoor, by the port. As it's on a small street, parking to be found off season right there, but quiet anyway.. The fish menu was very good with the catch of the day recommended. Their porto like house cocktail was very special.. A nice evening in all aspects.

We dined at La Gaffe twice during our weeks stay in Saint Florent. The restaurant is well positioned on the harbour front and I suspect is very busy most evenings. There are excellent and varied menu choices. On our first visit we went for carne options. I had an excellent veal steak and my wife a pork dish which was... More

Nice restaurant on the embankment in St. Florent. In touristy area. Quite expensive. Food was quite good. Had langoustine with risotto and langoustine salad.
