I can elaborate only on the set menu, it was well executed, tasteful and not least important - French.

We arrived here tired and hungry and were greeted by a friendly face. The menu had two of my favourite dishes - hot goats cheese salad (probably the best one I have had) and a magret de canard. The food was well presented and delicious.

Nice place for a good dinner, friendly waiters and tasty food, choosen from several items in the list. All of us were satisfied, need to improve the wine selection, but it is only a detail.

Definitely not a bad meal but not a truly memorable one either. Had a nice night all the same and would probably return if we wanted to eat fairly affordably and try some other menu items. Nice location on the seafront.

We were in La Ciotat and had dinner at La Grotte. Dinner was delicious. My husband and the other couple we were with ordered their Soupe De Poissons and they all said it was delicious. Their Salmon Entree and Fish Entrees were delicious. Their Chocolate Cake was amazing with a toasted coconut on the sides! Great first dinner in the... More

After a hot beach day, we decided to try for a late lunch La Grotte restaurant. We ended up eating the menu de jour which was an excellent choise. For the starter we had jambon e melon (air-dried ham with melon) and for the main course we had steak with grilled potatoes. Both dishes were very tasty. Our son had... More

We were here on business and had a reason to celebrate on a Tuesday when many of the local restaurants were closed. The decor could use some work, but the food and service were very good. No complaints.

We took the 20 EUR menu and all courses were relly good. We had tomato tartare (actually a salad), sea salad (with sea snails), salmon, duck, mousse au chocolat and the tiramisu - all of them very delicious and recommendable. The service was friendly but was a bit too busy from time to time. Even though the heaters were running... More
