The place: A small restaurant in a side street to the main pedestrian street. Servings done inside and outside (covered seatings). Not a very big place, and quite cosy. The food: Homemade and absolutely good and tasty. A lunch menu for 18.50 eur was this day Moules Casoulette, Veal sautee, Apple tarte (3 dishes). Wine and drinks: Fine small winelist,... More

We ate here three times on our recent holiday . Lunch very good value. The 35 euro menu was our favourite.... The filet de beouf just perfect . Our friends also enjoyed the fish soup , and lobster gratin. Good wine list, and the owner Fred is on hand to advise. Hope to visit again on our next trip .

We dine hear when the town is over-full in the height of the season because you can usually get a reservation and it is not stuffed full of hot, sweaty tourists. The food is fine, but not gourmet. We had a bit of a wait on a busy night the other evening, but the husband and wife team are good... More

A little higher up from the main pedestrian street you will find "FRED". A small restaurant with service inside and on the outdoor terrasse (covered). We had Moules on Curry, and Steak Milanese. Superb - based on good raw materials, nothing fancy, just well done and with good taste.

We found this little restaurant on our first night in St Maxime quite by chance wandering down one of the little back streets. The owner Fred is very charming and spoke very good English as our French was a bit basic. We ended up going back there for 2 more nights during our stay in St Maxime- testament to the... More

We have been going to Fred's every time we go to Sainte Maxime. Still the same owner(s). Friendly guy and personel. We went with our dog (for the first time) and they are very dog friendly. Immediately we got water for the dog eventhough it was very busy in the restaurant. We always have the pizza with a bottle of... More
