Our party of three stopped by the port of Cavalaire on Easter Monday and after reading the Tripadvisor reviews complaining about the "poor service" at the Dolce Mare, we nearly didn't go in but the menu and decor appealed to us, as well as the nice location by the port, so we tried anyway. The lady waitress (who turned out... More

One of the worst meals in recent memory. The food was average but it was the abysmal service that really stuck out. The staff generally treated us like an inconvenience. For example, when our bottled water eventually arrived the waitress realised that we had no glasses, we then had to an inordinate amount of time before she brought them(our sparkling... More

From the first minutes we felt like we were not welcome, after long waiting time at the table we had to ask for menus, then for water glasses, then for the cutlery... The food was very average and definitely not worth its price, at the end we were overcharged and the owner of the restaurant was very impolite when asked... More

The food was ok, but pricey. However, a half-empty restaurant at the end of the season should try a little harder to encourage people to return..

We arrived at the restaurant, having booked, at 12.30. We waited 30 minutes for them to offer a dring and to order. The starter came nearly 40 minutes later and the main course took another hour. The food was excellent but with only two waiters and the owner serving about 25 tables, it was obvious that they had insufficient people... More

Very good seafood so good we went there twice. The service is a bit slow but the quality of food and friendliness made up for it. We had oysters. Excellent moules and prawns. We are a big group but the owner made an effort to accommodate our requests. V good.

Very quiet restaurant at this time of year, with only six couples dining. We chose from the 25 Euro menu, both starting with the crabe tartare, which came with a little salad and some caviar-delicious! Then my wife had the entrecôte whilst I had the sea bass. Both came with some vegetables, the steak with sautéed potatoes, mine came with... More

Went twice whilst on holiday in Cavalaire. First visit there was 4 of us and we chose from the 25€ menu. All the entrees were impressive - delicious fish soup, mixed fish salad particularly tasty. The main were good too, prawn risotto- exquisite, dorade - bland. The veal arrived late and not before the wrong meal (duck - due at... More

Dolcemare is situated at the "entrance" of the harbour area. It was not full when we came, but filled up as the evening progressed. The service slowed down and got sloppier as the same pace. Unexperienced staff, maybe. We had their 19€ menu. Sallad and avocado terrin as a starter. Quite tasty and nicely presented on the plates. We had... More

I was initially nervous about booking this restaurant (which is on the site of a restaurant that closed down in 2013), but thought I would give it a try. I am very glad that I did. The choice was wide and varied and the quality of the food excellent. I will certainly re-visit.
