I've been going to this restaurant fairly regularly for over 12 years. It is always excellent. The location is lovely, set back from the marina at Port St Laurent (stroll along the waters edge after lunch or before dinner), one of many restaurants and bars along this fairly elegant strip. The Sant'ana is family-owned and has been running since the 1970s. Decor is elegant but comfortable; the service is immaculate but friendly; the menu simple and classy, with a strong focus on fresh local fish and classic Mediterranean cuisine. It's as good for an intimate romantic dinner as for a large group business lunch (book in advance). Special menus can be arranged in advance for special group events - discuss with them (English is fluent). Smart casual dress; smart casual behaviour.

In July, peak season, we visited this restaurant several times. It lies in the port of Saint-Laurent du Var where you have a whole row of restaurants to choose from. The cuisine is French and you have the daily selection of fresh caught fish amongst other things on the menu.
The food is well prepared, the staff was great (when you spoke french, perhaps a little less so when it came to english) and the prices were fair. This is a place where a lot of locals come to dine. It is relaxed but with good service and good produce. However is not a gourmet restaurant, here you will find quite typical dishes from the local french cuisine and a relaxed and inviting ambiance. While we waited for our food they served a complimentary dish of tapenade with toasted bread and with the check comes a plate with a selection of "home maid" biscuits.
If you decide to visit in July please note that this place was packed every night of the week so a reservation might not be a bad idea.
