Absolutely average place: average food for average prices. Nothing special but nothing bad. We tried the fixed menu; really no thrill, but good choice of dishes. Worth trying if all other places are full.

Found a nice table on the top terrace overlooking the sea, just as the sun was setting. It's really the perfect situation for a romantic meal. The service was rather slow to begin with, and the young waitress didn't seem interested in being there initially. The older lady serving was nicer, having a friendlier personality. I ordered a mixed salad... More

We sat here for more than one hour waiting for the tagliatellle with fruits de mer. I wished we had left before it came on our table. AWFUL!! and the level of service is unbelievable!! One hour waiting and when I complained the food arrived in 5 minutes. What have they been doing in the kitchen before one might wonder.... More

We were wandering around the village after a long drive and we walked up to the Cirque bar and restaurant for a drink, I wish we had stayed there for food as we ended up here as the Paellas sounded good. Wish I had read the reviews first. The sea food paella should be renamed 'paella' I have seen more... More

This was our first meal in Saint Florent and the view overlooking the gulf (sit on the elevated terrace) was a wonderful way to take in our new surroundings. I don't think it'd be an exaggeration to say it's the best terrace in town! The prices are among the most reasonable with plenty of options, but you get what you... More

The restaurant is located at the end of the promenade. The staff could speak only a few words in English, but was friendly and helpful. The dinner was served quite quickly und was tasty. The size of the dishes was not that big, but you cannot expect more from a tourist menu of 18 Euro. Paella was tasteful, but the... More

We sat on the quai with nice view over the harbour - that was what can be mentioned positive. Food was overcooked (eggplant, fish) and not worth mentioning. Service ok.

One of the worst restaurants we have ever been to and it was all down to the poor quality of the food. The kids meals were cold with stale fries. Our seafood paella only had 2 lonely mussels and 3 shrimps in old rice. It's only redeeming feature is it's superb location. Maybe worth a drink but certainly don't eat... More
