I have written many reviews, but can't recall ever saying "avoid this restaurant". We were there last week with a party of six. two of us didn't eat more than one bite of our meal, and the remaining four ate dinner due to hunger, without much/any enjoyment of the food. With so many other quality options, why bother?

Somehow this place seems to be going down the drain really fast or maybe I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they were just having a bad night.
Friday night in the Le Marin at the beginning of French school holiday season and having no dinner reservation was not smart of us. With all the good restaurants in town fully booked we ended up at O ble noir, the only place with empty seats, that should have been a sign right there.
It started ok, given menus and drink orders taken right away. Food order quickly in: 2 "plate of the day" and 1 burger. It went downhill from there.
We sat for 1 hr and a half, watching a totally disorganized staff running around. Food being delivered to tables around us, customers barely touching it, paying and leaving with angry faces.
During all that time no one checked on us. We finally manage to flag a waiter down who gave us a lame excuse for the wait: "we have new kitchen staff your food is coming out shortly". We then heard the same waiter tell the table next to us "sorry for the wait, your ticket order didn't print so the kitchen didn't get it, we are taking care of it now".
Bottom line this place was a disaster and totally unprofessional.
When our food finally came out close to 2 hours after ordering, burger was ok, plates of the day were nothing as what was described, not even the same items or ingredients, and didn't even taste good.
Lesson learned, not going back to o ble noir, and in the future calling ahead with reservations to the other true restaurants in town that are run by professionals not by amateurs.

While Le Marin is certainly more touristy, and we were trying to avoid those places, O Ble Noir was well worth the visit to the Le Marin Harbor. We went on a Saturday night and they had live music playing on the pier. The food was so delicious that we came back again on Sunday evening for dinner. The server was very friendly, prices were reasonable and the drinks were marvelous. The server remembered us the next day and was happy to see us again. It has a great nightlife atmosphere amongst all the other restaurants and bars at the harbor. I really enjoyed the lighting. If you want a good crepe or galette, this is the place to go.

The final impression of this place is on average. The food was a bit above average, the service sometimes was good, sometimes bad. It you want to grab something to eat it's ok, but if you want a nice restaurant choose another place!

We went there two times on our vacation. Great place to have a Galete or a crepe. Tried one with three cheeses, bacon and honey. Finger licking. The second time we tried something more classic. Cheese, ham and egg. Perfect. On the table in front they were having a huge burger which looked real good. We tried the ice creams. Rum and raisins and white chocolate. Stunning. The people are friendly. The new marina where it is located is a nice part of town.
