Went in by random and noticed service level is a typical French style. Ordered various oysters to taste and the most impressive is the Papillons No.5 and the sweetness still lingering in my mouth while I am writing this review. Bang for bucks is all I want to say. Be note that you must have patience before entering into this place!

Located at the centre of Place Garibaldi, it was lovely sitting outdoors for dinner. Great atmosphere. Service was ok. Oysters were slurpilicious and fresh. I was pleasantly surprised by the huge plate of seafood pasta. A big and generous serving. Definitely worth your euros.

We went here after reading the article "First-Time Visitors" on tripadvisor and it was definitely a great choice! It was easy to find the location, and the restaurant is big, so we didn't even have to wait for a table. The service was excellent. Their most popular was their seafood platter, and though we're not usually seafood-lovers, this was an amazing meal!!

We visited Cafe de Turin various times for its fresh and reasonably priced seafood. During the lunch session, when the restaurant was less hectic, we were served by a wonderful gentleman. But dinner time was another story, with waiters impossible to approach. The lady who was incharge of our dinner table was grumpy all night, and when we asked for recommendations she just shrugged her shoulders and looked away. As we have rented a vacation villa, we decided on our subsequent visits to enjoy its seafood instead by opting for takeaway at their seafood counters (located just at the outdoor area of the restaurant; it's cheaper and they provide plenty of ice to keep the seafood fresh + lemons)-and assembling the platter ourselves:)

We noticed the restaurant, walking on Garibaldi square. The portions of seafood were so big and oysters were so pulpy...
It is not possible to book a table, but as there are a lot of seats it is not hard to find one. The food was as excellent, as it looked like.
