Surprisingly friendly staff for this part of the world, even the oyster shucker said hello! Restaurant was full on thos very sunny February day. The waiter quickly and willingly reset a table. In spite of the crowd, we were served without delay. The steak was good, the scallops grilled in the shell, delicious. Desserts were very good too, particularly the... More

We found this place by accident while cycling west along the prom from Nice and happened to arrive at lunchtime. The delightful friendly waiter recommended the Coquille St Jacques which could not have been more delicious. Tender lightly cooked scallops in a delicious lemon sauce garnished with carrot and courgette strips. This was followed by nougat glacé, also recommended by... More

Had a superb lunch here today with delicious scallops in a stupendous sauce .Delightful waiter who helped us decide. Could have done with a spoon though to get every tiny bit of the sauce!

This is a very nice fish restaurant, just along the beach way facing strait out to the sea. I asked my wife why it was so nice to sit 10 meter from all the cars on the way forward and backward having great food and good wine, "it's the whole package that are so nice" and if anything is not...

Nice location close the sea. A complete set of dishes if you like seafood and fish. Oysters and mussels freshly served on nice iced plates. The ravioli is a must as a starter, smooth and nice if you don´t like Oysters. Good wines or champagne in excellent combination to the selected sea food from the menu is my recommendation.

Some years ago the restaurant was written up by Michael Winner who quoted Roger Moore as saying they served the best fish in the Riveria. Many years later, the fish is still very good although the overall experience could be better. The service from the owner to the waiters is ok. Efficient but not friendly. The two of us ordered...

I go back to Charlotte 1er every time I visit Cagnes sur Mer for their excellent seafood...boulliabaise, local fish dishes and their most excellent Plateau au Fruit de Mer, reasonably priced for two, but bountiful enough for three.

I know Charlot since 15 years and every time we want to show our guests how the fish or other seafood shall be prepared we take them there. Fish is always fresh, so you do not know what is going to be available that very day, but whatever is served is fantastic. Very simple preparation, not allowing to mask deficiencies... More
