The restaurant sits on a ledge on the ocean (ignore the maps that show it inland), and the view from the dining room is a glass wall on the rocky shore, the islands (including the d'IF of Monte Cristo fame), the sea, and the other shore - just panoramic. So consider going for lunch when the sun is up, as opposed to dinner when the sun is down.
All the guidebook and websites put it in the top rank for view and bouillabaise, and the other TripAdvisor competitors lose the view competition in my book.
An amuse bouche and aperitif later, we ordered a nice Condrieu off the wine list (about twice retail), and of course we had the bouillabaise. It came first as a soupe de poisson, then came the platter of fish, then boned fish with soupe. Along with the requisite sauces an croutons.
I thought the broth superb, and the fish looked a bit small, but yielded as much fillet as I could eat . The soupe seemed to be unlimited. Very nice, and we were glad we had followed the waiter's advice and skipped any entree.
The white and black chocolate dessert was spectacular, as was a macaroon dessert, though I hardly know how to describe them. Exceptional mignardise.
