A bit expensive, but if you have 20 Euro per 6 oysters in your budget, the quality is great! The waiters are multilingual and attentive. Environment is pleasant. Tee size if the portions suggests that you came to enjoy the taste instead of filling your stomach.

Very accommodating as we had our one year old and they had child seat and changing table. Air conditioning which always good - had a feeling of a special meal restaurant. Food very good, great seafood and the best oysters we had all week.

Thank goodness we had a reservation (made 15 minutes before the restaurant opened for dinner). This restaurant is very popular and filled up quickly! Outstanding meal from start to finish! The service was also top quality! If you like fresh (and I mean FRESH) seafood, then you must have dinner at Le Cabestan! There is a very good reason why this restaurant is rated so highly on Tripadvisor!

Pretty expensive, but worth it. Great service, amazing food. Waiters attentive and multilingual. It is not always open so call ahead. Tuesday night it was closed, go figure. In mid-winter it is off season and we stopped by for lunch and it was probably one of the best meals I have had in years.

Luckily we booked this restaurant as it was a Saturday evening, they were turning people away. My husband found this by chance earlier on in the day, and we did not know it had such a good reputation. We sat down at 8pm and it was very busy. My one groan would be that the service was initially slow, but the staff and food more than made up for it. The food was absolutely delicious, what was lovely is that we were not rushed once we started our meal. We had oysters, fish soup, and my husband had the most delicious red mullet to start, we followed this with confit of duck (criminal I know in a fish restaurant), and husband had monkfish tail.these dishes were sublime. We did manage a desert!! I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough, it really deserves all the good reviews. The gentlemen who seemed to be in charge was Magnifique.
