We booked the table at short notice and had trouble finding it. The Quay does not have any street names on them and we looked on google for directions which seemed straight forward. We walked right passed it.
It reminded me of one of those sea side huts but stretched towards the back. We had no view of the marina as there is only a small entrance and hoards of people blocked any other view we might have had. menus are given and all around the room there are specials of the day on chalk boards. I had slow cooked lamb in a thyme jus which i enjoyed but there was no taste of the thyme. My husband had Saint-Jacques which he also enjoyed.
The tables are tightly packed, it is very cramped and impossible to have a private or romantic conversation.

After round of golf at Cap d'Agde, and at a loss asto where to eat, phoned my wife at home in Ireland who checked Tripadvisor for number 1 rated restaurant and she came up with table de Martha. This was only 200 metres on where we were, and although it was 6.45, was able to get a table overlooking the quayside for 7.30. We sat down at 7.20, and there was only one other table occupied, but by 7.45, restaurant was full, and many well-heeled locals were being turned away as we sat though our meal. All 4 of us ordered the tempura prawns. It is hard to describe how beautifully these were presented, but the taste, flavour, consistency were the best I (and my friends) had ever experienced. Moreover the portions were very generous (5 very large prawns). I cannot speak about the other starters, but when I revisit, it will be hard to go past these prawns. For main course I had a seafood platter, which was on a similar level. This included large fillets of squid, monkfish, langoustines, scallops and one other white fish that I could not identify, but tasted divine. My friends all had steak, medium cooked, but more like rare. This did not detract from my friends' experiences, who all gave it a 5 start rating. The set menu included cheese course (albeit modest portions), a sorbet course and a dessert. We worked off the 35euro menu, and accompanied our food with an excellent Chateau Grezain red wine. The staff were attentive and friendly, enduring my mediocre French with politeness and not a little assistance. The fact that they operate a 2 sitting format means that things move along at a pleasant, though unrushed pace. Overlooking the marina, this is a feast for the palate and the eye, and the coziness (there is not a lot of room between the tables) does not detract from what is the main event, the food. Many of the other Eateries in Cap d'Agde are typical seafront 'moules frites' style, which though fine, are not remarkable eating experiences, which 'table de Martha' undoubtedly is.

This well-recommended restaurant is set amongst many lesser establishments, on the Cap d'Agde quayside. We got a table with a reservation made by our hotel in the afternoon. The Table de Marthe has two rigidly-timed sittings - at 19.30 and 21.30. We joined for the later serving, and the organisation of seating guests, and taking everyone's orders simultaneously, made for a very slow start. It was half an hour before we saw our entre - even though we were in our seats at the appointed time. The smallish restaurant was crowded, and the two waiting staff (not to mention the kitchen) could not cope with all the orders at the same time. By contrast the food was very well presented and cooked with real skill and ambition. Most dishes were a taste treat - although on the night we visited there were perhaps too many dishes which featured generous quantities of cream and cheese. All our dishes were interesting - but maybe there was slightly too much going on at the same time. A lovely eating experience - but it could be so much better if the serving arrangements were re-organised.
