The restaurant offered table until the large windows facing the ocean, quite yummy! Friendly waiters. We chose a fixed menu "Balade Catalane". In particular, the cod was very good as was the wine.

Come here for the view, the v fresh fish and the choice of local wines. Staff are friendly and efficient. Book it's a popular spot and not just because of the view.

The restaurant has great views of the beach and the sea from its glass enclosed veranda. Menu based on food produced and caught locally. Both fish and meat. Ordering wine you can see some of the vineyards from your table. Short travelled food and wine. Staff is polite and professional. La Littorine restaurant is part of the des Elmes hotel.... More

As a standalone Restaurant This place has always been a favourite of ours – going back to the days of the Chef Jean Marie Patrouix. We returned this year and were again impressed by the location of this hotel and our table overlooking the beach. A good wine list but at tricky menu. The choices are a 35€ menu or... More

Lunched here on May 3rd 2016. Understated and efficient service. Lovely view. Excellent fixed lunch menu and very good wine. Portions were perfect and the price was right. Great value and one of the highlights of our latest two weeks on the Vermillion Coast.

This restaurant is placed in the Hotel les Elmes, and we had no plans to have dinner there, when we came to the hotel to stay for the night. But the friendly staff recommended it - of course :-) - and we were not dissappointed! A very delicious and good dinner, and absolutely not expensive. Try it!!

We have had lunch here a few times and I have written a review previously, when all was well. This time the fixed price menu was an artistic creation both visually and gastronomically. Starters were 'leeks as I remember them as a boy' and calamars, each looking a sensation and tasting superb. No Tasteless rubber tubes, there! The main courses... More

Beautiful place overlooking the sea. We had a three course lunch with local good wines. The starter was a soup that was absolutely top of the notch. The main course was a well tasting fish accompanied with (just) bread followed by a dessert which tasted ok. Nice and professional staff.

We came to this restaurant with high expectations: modern updated look, great location and good reviews looked promising. Here is what we received: inedible lamb and fish main dishes: fish tasted disgusting, while lamb was simply raw (!), served with pretensions garnishes . the desert was much better but overall - very very poor.

Had wonderful appetizers of sardines and cold melon soup, and then amazing entees of scorpionfish in a boulliabaise sauce-- it was all delicious. Brisk and efficient service, and a beautiful location.
