“Great food, great host, service patchy”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Went here recently for a friend's birthday. We hadn't booked, but although the restaurant was busy they accommodated our small group. The host/proprietor was excellent, very friendly and funny and took us through the French menu in detail. The food was also excellent, we had a range of starters, mains and desserts and all were good with my starter and dessert being particularly strong. The service was a little patchy with longer than normal waits for drinks, wine lists and collection of finished plates. Apart from that an overall excellent experience.

“Great comfy bistro on the strip of lounges in the Port”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Loved the place and the host Jean Christoff. He made this experience unique with his remarks about wines and good. You can trust him with wine pairing for the food.
Food was great, done perfectly to your taste buds
Wines I explained already
Ambience is little loud, but nothing what would interrupt your conversation.
Service is good and timely.
Definitely would come back.

“Great place, close to the airport”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We stumbled on Le Bistro Quai by chance when we wanted a nice lunch before a flight. It's less than five minutes away from the airport. We have since been back for dinner, which also was a very nice experience. The staff is attentive and nice; they seem to like to interact with their guests; discussing wine, the food or whatever. The wine list is fairly short, but has several excellent choices in the price range between 20 - 30 euros. Both times we have been, we have been impressed by the quality of the food and its presentation. The café gourmand for desert was one of the best we've ever had. Great place!

“Great seafood meal”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Very friendly and relaxed restaurant along the harbourside of St Laurent du Var that serves fresh seafood that are tastefully prepared in a down to earth manner. It appears to be very popular with the locals as well. The portions are generous, leaving hardly any room for dessert. Will definitely return.
