This was a recommendation but it was very highly priced and was mostly fish on the menu, which I am sure would suit a great many people. We had ordered a drink, when we realised that the price and the menu were not suitable. We...More

Caveat Emptor! This restaurant is unhealthy, the staff smells, they push old fish, they are horrible chefs, the serving trays are filthy - I cannot say enough terrible things about this place. We went here wanting to find a place away from Beaulieu for the...More

We are regulars in St Jean but this was our first visit and we loved the service, the location (we sat outside on the terrace) and above all the food. The oysters were perfect and our party enjoyed more seafood. Good choice of wines and...More

We were sent here by our hotel for my wife’s birthday. Wait staff was friendly but inept and/or lacking in empathy, and the kitchen needs serious work. For example, we were given a hard sell to take the fish of the day—were told it would...More

We ate here with the family. Food was excellent, but prices were very high. We ate at The Pirate on the same strip another day, equally good food (better service) and far less expensive.

The restaurant is located on the harbour side in St Jean and is the first in a row of restaurants. The battered octopus starter and the subsequent duck were excellent but the mark up on the wine was rather high. The service was good. This...More

We came here for their oysters, which were the best we had on our entire trip! The sushi was not bad for France, and the bouillabaisse was satisfactory. We also had sea bream, which was delicious. Good place for a seafood fix.

Ate lunch two days in a row. Staff were great - helpful and spoke English. All the food was great - oysters, octopus, tartare, fish prepared table-side. Desserts are visually impressive yet also delicious. I don't agree with having Buddha's outside of temples, so tried...More
