I've been here with my boyfriend. Cold reception. When (after more then fifteen minutes from our arrival) my boyfriend gently asked the waiter to order, he responded with an extremely rude and challenging tone, making fun of our foreign accent. For the first time in...More

Negatives - Took 1 hour to receive the main course. Asked if we would like to see the dessert menu - then were forgotten about for another 30 minutes and had to initiate contact with waiting staff. Positives - food was lovely, view stunning, approach...More

Quite arrogant staff. I politely asked for a table and was treated very snotty by the steward for not having a reservation. All I wanted to know is, whether there was a free table. What a ridiculous behavior of this person!

A gorgeous way to pass an afternoon with delicious bouillabaisse, a cold glass of wine, and a beautiful sea view. Don't forget to reserve as the restaurant fills up in advance and if you want the bouillabaisse, you must order in advance.

The chateau is an ironic misnomer as architecturally nothing could be further from the truth. This is a long low modern flat-roofed building, used mostly as a serving area for the huge terrace outside where the tables are seat. Again, despite its name, it has...More

A rustic restaurant overlooking a small bay (the colors of the water were gorgeous), so know that rusticity is a part of the charm. You get there by means of a twisty narrow road headed down, with backing up necessary so that you can make...More

My husband and I visited today and managed to dodge a group of thieves (possibly) posing as security/parking guards. After we parked outside the main gate (the one that is a 35 min. hike to the restaurant), we were putting some valuables in our trunk....More

Four people for lunch. We hadn't pre-ordered the bouillabaise or the zarzuela, so settled for octopus, mussels, grilled fish, fish soup, scallops etc. All absolutely terrific. Do reserve in advance. Parking is extra. Lunch is a better option in terms of driving the mountain road...More

This restaurant seems high-end, and is certainly expensive. However, we ordered a well-done steak which was red and almost liquid inside. And tiger prawn spaghetti which was OK, but fairly bland. With two soft drinks, the bill was almost €60. Probably the most expensive, but...More
