We had the most wonderful seafood dinner I this lovely/typical waterfront restaurant. French seafood at its simple best. The staff were attentive and friendly. The fish soup was delicious and my husbands fish was filleted at the table with precision excellence. It would be a great summertime lunch venue. Though we had a very happy evening with heaters on.

We had a wonderful dinner here which was perfection from beginning to end!
My husband was adventurous and tried an unusual selection of raw seafood on a platter whilst I stuck to sushi and risotto. Our food was beautifully presented and everything I ate was excellent, It was one of the best risottos I have ever ordered.
The service was friendly, yet discreet and all the waiters were very helpful.
I would be cautious about choosing from the fresh fish selection as it goes by weight and one could end up with a heady bill!

Lovely to be on the port, so close to the water and boats. This is a place for extremely fresh fish, but at a price. The oysters were excellent as were the salmon and mi-cuit tuna with sesame seeds. Slightly disappointed with the prices of the wines, details of which were found, along with the menus and a la carte dishes, on a small individual tablet that everyone was handed. Serving staff were great. Nothing was too much trouble ...more ice, butter, drinks, all completed with a smile.
Go for the experience, to people watch and to enjoy very recently caught fish. If money is no object, this is a great place to choose.

We have stayed in Cap Ferrat for the first time after our previous trip to the South of France was to Nice so it was interesting to see what the restaurants in Cap Ferrat offered in terms of choice, experience and value.

Location wise this was directly at the side of the marina where there are a selection of restaurants and so was a lovely setting and this is a really nicely laid out & appealing restaurant

Service was professional, attentive and friendly though out.

Food was very good for all dishes (from the sushi appetiser, a nice complimentary treat, as was the digestif at the end). Good menu selection both food and wine with a selection of fish dishes prevailing.

The calamari was nicely cooked and the fish of the day, cooked in sea salt was very good - the only consideration I would have in the future is the 'ordering by the g/kg' approach as this can turn out to be a seriously expensive experience if you are not careful re the size & weight of the fish on offer (caveat emptor!).

My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here by the water. The waitress was so cute and helpful. The menu was on an iPad where you could change the language, which was great. The food was amazing. We tried a number of things. The local sushi was incredible. The catch of the day was great -- they showed you the various options before you ordered. The John Dory was delicious. Very simple presentation. The vegetables served with the fish were also delicious. The shrimp were great (although it took us a minute to figure out we were supposed to put the mayonnaise on it, which made it even more delicious...). The truffle risotto was great. The chocolate dessert was to die for, worth every calorie. Not an inexpensive meal by any means, but it was wonderful food in a great setting.
