The atmosphere is pleasant and it is in a quaint village. There were very few options however and service was a little slow, but still we had a pleasant meal. Conveniently located at walking distance from our hotel.

Very good food . Nice people and not expensive . It is the only good restaurant in the village where you have too a bar/restaurant which is not that good . Will recommend you go at l'Esterel.

We have stayed in Marquay a couple of times and this is our second time eating at this Restaurant. We are three vegetarians and had asked the Manager in hotel Moneà to book for us on 23/7 as it was my husband's birthday. It is a very pleasant restaurant and the girl serving us was great but the restaurant was... More

Two excellent value menus or a la carte, this place is worth travelling to. Food here is treated with respect, as are the clients. Service is attentive but not intrusive and the food is fabulous. Any restaurant which can attract a large party of French locals must be doing things right, and they are.

We were staying at Maison de Marquay and L'Esterel is just around the corner in the very small village of Marquay. We had dinner here the first night we were in Marquay and it was good. Not great, but service was good and food was tasty.

Our hotel in Marquay had no restaurant so the default choice was L'Esterel. It is in effect the only restaurant in Marquay, but happily that was not a problem. It offers a solid set menu at 17 Euros for three courses, the only limitation being that it's hard to avoid the regional specialities, goose and duck - which every other... More

We ate here on a Saturday evening. Arrived at 19:00 and we were the first there so got good service. Most people didn't start arriving until 20:00. I had the €17 three course meal. The helpings weren't huge, but just enough. A typically good value French small town restaurant.

We had dinner on the outdoor terrace of this restaurant in this lovely town. The food was fine and the price very good, if you settle for the set menu (which I love about eating in France). House wine is excellent. So in all, we had a perfect romantic dinner!

We have dined at this restaurant on numerous occasions over the years and did so again earlier this month. We did have to wait at least half an hour before the first course this time as they were particularly busy but when it arrived, the food was up to its usual standard. Would especially like to recommend the duck leg... More
