We passed by this restaurant this evening and were enticed by the live musi then saw the swordfish awaiting the barbecue. We had a generous meal of barbecue swordfish and a succulent salmon salad. Staff very friendly and such a delight to sit on the beach in the evening listening to jazz and people watching.

Of course, it's a bit expensive to spend a full day in family in this place. You have to rent deckchairs, umbrellas, sodas...and if you add food at the restaurant... Nevertheless, dishes are very fresh and generous, pizzas are on top...and the personnel is very kind. Anyways, a good surprise on the beach, not a trap for tourists.

The location is excellent on the beach in La Ciotat. The food is however below average and it was a bit surprising that they were out of pasta with seafood of the day two days in a row. The salad niçoise was a positive surprise and the house was what expect from a vin de table.

Excellent beach type restaurent bar right on the sand. Very busy every day. We eat there two or three times and each time the food was excellent and the service quick for France!! How they produce the quality of food from the tiny kitchen is beyond me, The waiters are very friendly and patient with the kids. Nice to sit... More
