Hearty seafood in a great location. We enjoyed our dinner at Le Chateau. Things to know for next time: 1. The restaurant physically doesn't open until 7.30pm. We left around 9pm. Service speed was spot on. 2. Our hotel explained you need to book and...More

Terrible service, I was patronised by the waiter how to behave, and he even accused my friend of being aggressive, in French because only she could speak the language, very unpleasant guy but others were nice, shame to give such an unpleasant experience to visitors,...More

I would give Le Chateau more stars, but the service is so bad. I arrived on time for my reserved table and 15 minutes after being seated ( with no menu or drinks order) another waiter asked me if I had reserved the table!! A...More

I can always visit this place for its great view and access to the calanques. The food is not that good but who cares! You have this amazing location of the restaurant which is worth it. Noting that it's considered a bit costly compared to...More

Quite arrogant staff. I politely asked for a table and was treated very snotty by the steward for not having a reservation. All I wanted to know is, whether there was a free table. What a ridiculous behavior of this person!

A gorgeous way to pass an afternoon with delicious bouillabaisse, a cold glass of wine, and a beautiful sea view. Don't forget to reserve as the restaurant fills up in advance and if you want the bouillabaisse, you must order in advance.

The chateau is an ironic misnomer as architecturally nothing could be further from the truth. This is a long low modern flat-roofed building, used mostly as a serving area for the huge terrace outside where the tables are seat. Again, despite its name, it has...More
