We visited twice; once for wine, and once for dinner. We had great service both times. The first time, we were the last to leave, and they were kind enough to not rush us out even though they were waiting on us to close up! We returned for a full meal with our children a few days later, and they... More

We chose this restaurant after reading some of the reviews. Nice setting and views of the river and opposite river bank. Staff were friendly and helped spoke English. Food was average and presented as it would have 30 years ago. We may have gone on a bad day.

We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening. We received a warm welcome and were seated quickly. The service staff were very helpful as regards menu choices and wine. The food was very good although not exceptional. The dishes are well presented. My fish main course lacked taste although my duck starter was exceptional. The location of the restaurant... More

You will not find outstanding restaurants in the town of Agde but you can find some decent ones. Mare Nostrum is one of the better ones. Not much in this area is truly a culinary delight but these guys at least try. Attentive service also in English with English menu will help the none French. They have fresh oysters and... More

We ate here in early June when it was not very busy (but the waiter greeted a couple of locals) and took the dearer menu, which was interesting and still not very expensive. We both of us had fish, accompanied by a bottle of local Picpoul de Pinet. Friendly service and excellent location. One of the best meals in our... More

Very nice service and probably family owned. But it doesn't help when the food tasted like it did thirty years ago. Time has stood still here. The main course of "rouges" which unfortunately two of us took was uneatable. And all desserts had some kind of liquor in it. But I guess me and my family were to young for... More

We were in Agde for a week and ended up visiting this restaurant twice because it was so good, here you get all the little extra touches which sets it apart from all the other restaurants we visited in Agde. The waiter was also extremely knowledgeable and made the experience for us. The food was very good quality and the... More

Newly arrived in Agde, hot and tired, we strolled along the quayside looking into all the restaurants and decided this was The One. How right we were! Under a cool awning, with efficient service and a friendly atmosphere, we enjoyed a great evening meal, mostly fish and seafood dishes, all of them presented to perfection. The waiter was knowledgeable about... More

Have dined several times in the past month at Mare Nostrum, on the Herault riverbank in Agde. The setting is the location of a number of competing restaurants, several of which offer meals on a boat moored on the river as well as an indoor dining room. Mare Nostrum is one of these. From our table on the boat/platform, we... More

Tucked in the Herault's riverbank, Mare Nostrum offers classic southern French fare: fish soup with rouille sauce, stuffed mussels and oysters, ratatouille, duck "magret" and fresh desserts. The food is made almost entirely from scratch by the family matriarch. Her husband greets all customers, their son apprentices in the kitchen. The wait staff is warm and attentive, with lots of...
