we went to this place after reading the positive critic in the DK Eyewitness guide. but we were bitterly disappointed. The only positive point about this place was the nice and relaxing view on the marina (although we were constantly disturbed by passing cars!!). We ordered foie gras, one took a burger the other a seabream. The starter was ok but nothing amazing for the 17 EUR each (it was supposed to be home made). The burger was mediocre: meat quality was poor, the bread was probably coming from the cheapest super market, falling appart, bland, spongy. The fish itself was ok; it came together with potatoe mash, zucchini aubergine and pepperoni salad and carrots. Potatoe mash was ok but the two other side dishes felt old (strangely smelled of old wett towels that didn't dry well!). Service was negligent, unfriendly and bold. AND we were directly served on dirty table cloth already used by we don't know how many other clients!
We got a 90EUR bill, which was way too expesive for the whole experience. AVOID!!

Ne parlant pas très très bien l 'anglais, merci d 'abord pour votre commentaire qui a attiré mon attention .
Le foie gras est n en douté pas fait maison, d ailleurs des cours sont organisés durant les fêtes si vous souhaitez apprendre a le confectionner!!!!
Le Burger n a pas été a votre gout nous en somme désolé, le pain n 'était pas fait maison effectivement mais je pense que rare sont les établissement qui le fabrique puisque nos fournisseurs on de très bon pain.
Concernant le service toutes nos excuses, ils arrivent parfois que nous ne voyons pas toutes les erreurs de notre équipe.
Merci pour vos commentaires dont nous prenons notes pour nous améliorez lors de votre prochan passage!!

A nice spot on St Jean port, very friendly service, not bad cooking as such but the use of poor quality ingredients definitely spoils it. Saving on purchases is a very bad idea in the restaurant business because the heavy workload which is always there can't be appreciated nor rewarded this way.

Bonjour,
Nous somme désolé que le repas n est pas était a votre gout, néanmoins lorsque les personnes finissent leurs plats, nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas détecter une insatisfaction et y remédier !!! Nous travaillons des produits frais et de qualités et je ne pense pas que l on puisse trouver cela dans tous les restaurants routiers de France. Toutes nos excuses pour le Fork!!!!! des clients on pu le salir juste avant vous et ne pas le signaler!!!!
Au plaisir de vous revoir, pour vous faire changer d 'avis
La direction

My friend and I scoped out the entire strip before settling here, not for any particular reason but just because we didn't feel like turning back. I am so glad we did because these were the best salads we've had during our south of France vacation. Prices were reasonable, service was good, and the patio was great. The salads were fancy and flavourful. I got the seafood salad and there was a lot of food.

Highly recommended, one of the best finds in town.
