There are numerous restaurants along the Quai Jean-Charles Rey in Fontvieille but we ended up going to Constantine twice on our short stay which says a lot about how much we enjoyed it. The decor is rustic with lots of bleached wood on the walls, bleached wood tables and an eclectic mix of garden and school room chairs. Service is both friendly and efficient. The style of food is Italian. We’d already had oysters and prawns at Gerhard’s Café along the road the first evening and guacamole and tortillas next door at Nacionalista the second, so we didn’t have starters either night. We did enjoy the amuse bouche, courtesy of the chef, both nights and then rustic breads with wonderful potent Italian virgin olive oil to dip into while we waited for our main courses. The menu is fairly compact but I like that because it often implies more thought has been given to a few dishes rather than masses of choice being thrown at you for the sake of it. The first night we both had Sardinian cochon de lait - tender chunks of suckling pig - downed with a lovely light rosé. Delicious. And on our second visit we both had the mixed fish grill which included chunks of yellow fish, mackerel fillets, scallops, squid and a jumbo prawn, all very fresh tasting and simply served together with a crisp white Vermentino which was the perfect accompaniment. Prices were very reasonable, particularly given the ocean front location.

Lovely place, slightly on the small side. Really good food though and good service. Menu is not huge but food is really good.

Great lunch with a view. A party of 4 and none of us was disappointed. Service was unexpectedly friendly and attentive.

It's nice when Italian owner brings you food. Prices of starters could say a bit too expensive, and in general you have to wait too long for your food, I saw in the kitchen they have just 2 people working. Very nice risotto of the cheff - seasonal products. Portions could be a bit bigger.
