We went there for lunch with my mother on our way to St Tropez. We had, six oysters No3, three fish and chips, one fromage blanc, one tiramitsu, one profiterolles, all serving were quite large and tasty, attentive service too. Busy place at lunch.

As the title says "Excellent". The location, the service, the cleanliness. It all added up to a great experience on the coast. We called in for an evening meal and i'm glad we did. We got seated straight away. The chairs were comfy and well spaced out. There was a good selection on the menu. I opted for the 1kg... More

To be honest it's my sister in law that researched this restaurant and it certainly lived up to our expectations. It has a pleasant location by the port and that would normally make one, well me anyway, that this was a tourist trap. But not on this occasion. We all had first class dishes , mine were ( so fresh)... More

One thing I was very unaware of is that Sainte-Maxime is very strict with their meal times. Many other cities on the cote d'azur have many restaurants that only serve food at certain times, but here it seems like you can only get lunch if you are seated between noon and 1:30, and dinner after 7. There are a handful... More

We chose l'Escapade instead of the larger and seemingly more popular restaurant next door, because it was fully shaded and it was a hot day. The location assures that it will always have customers. The staff and food are OK - no more, no less. I think the salads we had were mostly the cheaper ingredients of the content boasted... More

Basically, another seaside café-bistro with terrace and great people watching position. It is a slightly less expensive, and less good version of it's immediate neighbour, the Café de France. With a little more effort in the kitchen it could be very good, but it only manages to turn out pretty meagre grub. It's nice for a simple breakfast, and just... More

We visited this restaurant on the main road facing the harbor every morning to have a breakfast of good quality and a very reasonable price. We also had dinner there two evenings. Besides the nice location and friendly staff they serve a good dinner for a very reasonable price. This is not the restaurant to look for special dishes and... More

We don't normally go to the cafes on the front but this one is a little gem. Affordable breakfast and fantastic view across the harbour. Eggs with the French breakfast and a strong coffee on the set menu is a must!!!!

I find it hard to get a decent coffee outside of Melbourne Australia or Italy. Was starting to get worried about 5 weeks in France after 5 disappointing coffees in a row. This restaurant provided an excellent expresso with hot milk on the side as requested. The service was friendly and quick. Decided to stay for lunch in the afterglow... More
