Other reviews have described it well, It is a platform over the sea well equipped with parasols to keep the sun at bay. It appears to be total chaos but is well organised. We have been several times over the years, and visited again in July. You must book ahead, I would suggest a week. Bookings are written in a large diary, no computerisation here. And if you want the lobster or bouillabaisse order it in advance.
When you arrive you first have to find which waitress knows where you are sitting. Order the fish, cooked in the wood-burning oven. It comes on a huge plank with potatoes and tomatoes. The fish is charged by weight and is around a kilo for two people (previously one large fish, this year two fish, presumably what happened to be available that day. Sit back, enjoy and watch the staff in action.
Others have mentioned the prices. Highish but worth it for well cooked fresh fish.And certainly for a special occasion. But you can do it cheaper by having a salad nicoise or omelette, but you'll miss the real experience.
A few points. Lunchtimes only, and only the summer season. And NO credit/debit cards. Cash only (or cheques on a French bank account). Access from the road above is a steep walk or steps, but by lunchtime there is unlikely to be any parking spaces. Park in Cavaliere or Aiguebelle and walk back along the 'old railway', now a cycle track. Or arrive by boat and be rowed ashore. And it is on a nudist beach, but don't panic, you'll soon not even notice.
And you can always make a day of it by renting sunbeds and a parasol for before and after, you don't have to get naked but it would be an opportunity.
