Went for dinner in terrace, night view of the bay and boats. Food was also high quality, service excellent, good choice of wines (and after-diner cocktails). Pampering experience. Careful: very difficult parking, only parking lot beside the place was full, had to wait quite long...More

Restaurant overlooking the bay with excellent view. Freshly and well prepared dishes, equally good for fish or meat eaters. Desserts were ok too. Quite pricey but it is worth it

The seafood was lovely, and the service friendly, if a little slow. Anyway, we were in the mood to linger as it was such a lovely night. Reasonably priced and delicious.

Wow, what a great little recommendation of a restaurant. The setting is fabulous, staff attentive, polite and charming and the food absolutely scrumptious. We had possibly the best starter ever, crab with avocado and fresh tomatoes! Don't hesitate to book, you wont be disappointed!

Stunning views, amazing food and very professional staff. We've tried many restaurants on the Côte d'Azur, Le Mayssa is by far my favourite!

To recommend, the small table of lovers installed on the pontoon a few centimeters of water. Side plate, discover a simple kitchen with some well-measured creative twist, prepared with products from the market and from the sea.
