We had dinner here on a saturday evening in may and it was very nice! You site outside on a small square in the town centre and they provide blankets in case it gets cold. The Service was very quick and the owner super friendly. As a dinner we had a mixed fish plate and a Special dish of the day - both were very good! In Terms of drinks they were offering a selection of local beers (in bottles) which I highly recommend! Furthermore we had for Dessert a Creme Brulee and a Tiramisu (both were also very good - although the Tiramisu was not the classical italian one).

I would definitely recommed to eat here!

We went around Giens to find the best dinner place. When we went past this place we were greated by the lovely staff and immetiately felt that this was a great place. Since we were very early we were asked to come back 10 min later. We went by several restaurants but none felt as authentic.
The dinner was excuisite, good value for money, well cooked meals (we had two of the chef's recommendations). The tiramisu I had for dessert was lovely! Everything about this place is fantastic!

Stumbled across this gem. A family run small restaurant on the Main Street. No great views but the food was fabulous. Good value and very fresh fish

Going to a French restaurant can always be intimidating for us due to language barrier. When we arrived the boss was very friendly and settle us in with baby seats for the kids and water and bread looking at our exhaustion from the heat.

The menu in this place is extensive and also limited because their fishes are fresh from the very same morning. The owner had to explain every menu in fine detail for us to understand.

They have all sorts of fish. Not the typical English boring cod and haddock. All fishes are caught in the nearby harbour and cooked well with various herbs. I had the pauge fish with beautiful butter rice and ratatouille on the side. My wife had three various fillet fish with a king prawn with also rice and ratatouille. Kids had fries and fried calamari. Even the fries was from a fresh potatoes not frozen.

The restaurant is an outdoor location with excellent weather and music from neighbouring shops and village entertainment. A must to go for visitors! It's a little gem where it is always fully reserved by the locals. Thats how good it is.
