At Christmas 2015 we enjoyed eating at this restaurant on the harbour front at St Jean Cap Ferrat. We therefore chose it for Christmas Day 2016, and wished we hadn’t. Overall, the food can best be described as average and, at €145 for four of us, greatly overpriced. We had the fried camembert, moules marinieres and fish soup as starters.... More

We had a 3 course menu gourmand for 25€. Fish soup followed by a salmon fillet with roasted veggies and a steak tartare followed by a raspberry tiramisu . The whole meal was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient and despite it being a very chilly day. The heaters in the outside area were effective and welcoming. Would highly... More

This is a simple great restaurant by the port of St Jean Cap Ferrat. The food is very good and so is the service.

We got the 81 bus from Beaulieu to Port Jean on Cap Ferrat to take lunch on the waterfront. We picked this restaurant as it was quite busy with French clientel and not touristy. We chose from the Formula blackboard which they will bring to your table if you ask. For 28 euros you can choose a three course meal... More

There is a large selection of fresh seafood, risotto, salads and more! Prices are very reasonable for the area and portions are large. I stuck to a vegan salad and risotto whilst my husband had excellent fresh oysters and bouillabaisse. He raved about both. I'd eat here again.

Noticed restaurant was busy and tried this evening. All was good, service included. Will possibly go back tomorrow. Many places now closed due to time of year but I think this restaurant could still stand on its own!

We went in for a quick late lunch during our visit to St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. We checked restaurants on Tripadvisor and ended up at La Goelette. The experience was quite terrible. Service was arrogant. Wine by the glass was poor. You would imagine that seafood would be fresh at such destination, which it wasn't. All vegetables in the dishes were either from... More

The large menu offers a good variety of classical seafood dishes from many European cuisines. The Zarzuella Special was heavenly.

Food is really good. Service is prompt and high quality. Prices are reasonable if you compare Riviera. Paella and Cod steak are delicious. Try tiramisu! Perfect!
