Reviewed July 14, 2013

We went there for the see food; the food turned out to be good, but the atmosphere was somehow gloomy.

“A little expensive and service terrible but the food is good and atmosphere nice (if not the view)”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Ate here recently and was glad a local took me since from the outside it looks like nothing and to be honest, the port around it is such a mess that I may not have walked even this far into it myself. The place is across from essentially a construction area that looks like it has been that way forever and it is on a working port but inside is much nicer, well lit and comfortable, although perhaps they try to leave the air conditioning off to long as it got very hot before they turned it on.


The food is good and of course fish is the focus. My dish was pasta and a bit too heavy but the fish, scallops etc looked very fresh, very tasty and lighter.

The atmosphere was nice thanks to the lighting but it was pretty quiet (it was a Monday night I suppose). I was also surprised that the service was as bad as most places in Casa – we had our arms in the air while the waiter cleared the table 2 away from us but yet still nobody even glanced in our direction. Really bad and very disappointing for a rather nice place. The prices made this additionally disappointing as it was one of the more expensive places I ate in the city.

Well worth a visit though – the rough location is a nice feature and the food is good even if it is a bit more expensive than other places. The service really needs to improve though. We were there for over 2 hours and most of it was spent waiting on something to come or something to be taken away – really poor on this front, but good in everything else.

“good fish”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Quite difficult to find now, due to a construction site, it is on the open part of the port. Not a great interior, anyway ok. Then.... Fish! Whatever you want. From the oysters to the fired fish. Good and good price. To suggest if you are in the area

“Excellent fish at the port...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The restaurant is in the port and is not very welcoming at first because of the location. The room is basic and a bit old. The food nevertheless was excellent. All the dishes we tried were tasty and the fish seemed fresh from the carpaccio to the sole to the fried fish... Recommended especially if you are staying nearby (Ibis and Novotel).

“Comfy and pleasant”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Well, the Taverne du Dauphin was closed so I decided to venture to the the Ostrea that is still a walking distance from the Novotel ... nice selection of fish and cosy atmosphere, perfect for the business traveller !
