“Pretty good restaurant”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I ate here with friends and the whole experience was OK. Not great and not terrible. There isn't a lot on the beautiful island but the restaurant did well to cater for our group of 25.

Service is OK, but you need to prompt the waiting staff. I thought it was a bit pricey, but it is a captive audience.

“good food and great location”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Not sure why there are so many poor reviews, food was same price as Cannes even though you are a captive audience and it was good. We had a pizza that was freshly made and tasty and a huge Cesar salad which was lovely. They were busy but service was fine, we had much worse food and service in Cannes and the view is fantastic.

“The only restaurant on the Island”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I am surprised to see so many negative reviews on this restaurant, the only one on the island, the only place where you can have a glass of wine. The food was not sophisticated but freshly cooked and the portions were generous the wine was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view over Cannes was stunning. This is a restaurant on a almost wild and uninhabited island and therefore we did not expect it to be sophisticated, especially as we spent about 3 hours hours walking around and across the island.

“Truly VILE! Avoid,Avoid,Avoid!!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

After ten days of lovely dining experiences in France at all price levels, this place stands out simply because it was truly awful! Arrived at 11.45 and there were only two tables taken, we were shown to a table and given menu's as the place began to slowly fill. Observing the many staff, they just seemed to be running round doing not a lot of anything as though lunchtime had come as a surprise! After an eternal wait and having to ask again, our order of just 3 pizza's was taken, then we waited and waited and waited whilst enduring the chain smoking group next to us. After nearly an HOUR the look on my face must have told the waiter something and he went to check the kitchen. After a further wait, the pizza's arrived. Two were the 'Cannibale' which I can only describe as cold mince meat on a pizza base....bleurgh!!!! and they have the nerve to charge €15+ each for this muck! We paid and left. Whilst all this was going on the numerous staff just ran around doing nothing or simply ignored people. Go to this place at your peril or you want to waste your life waiting for truly awful food and worse service or better advice is either get a sandwich from the stall near the ferry or better still bring a picnic!

“Never go there!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

The staff is absolutely rude and inattentive. Bad food. Not worth the money. Don't go there! The second restaurant on the isle might be a better choice.
