Not only the best place with a view over the harbour of Cavalaire but also perfect in any way. The interior is perfectly styled, the service is always of very good quality and the dishes, specially seafood, are the best possible.

The restaurant has not much atmosphere, it feels too touristy, the service is good, but not really personal. Plateau fruit de mer was a good size, nicely presented, but definitely not the best I had in France. The crab and the langustines were unfortunately overcooked.

Always made to feel welcome here, food is divine and service excellent. Fresh seafood platters are spectacular and just watching a table of four people devouring one is live entertainment.! Pop next door to the Ancré Bléu for a digestive. Perfect. Also great for lunch when everything is a bit more chilled.

Has remained consistent throughout the 14 years we have been coming to this wonderful restaurant. Located on the marina with glorious views. The sea food is a must.

Just finished dinner here tonight and must admit for the menu price it was a great option. The service was rather prompt and extremely friendly. Normally when you go to a French restaurant this time of year if they are full they just turn you away. Here they were kind enough to add us to a waiting list and 20... More

I made the mistake of ignoring one of my own rules - never eat in a restaurant that is on the front in a tourist area. Enough said!

We visited L'Emeraude twice on a recent trip to Cavalaire-sur-mer. On both occasions the service was excellent, the prawns were huge and the wine flowed spectacularly. Would recommend the lobster and prawn special to all.

We chose L'Emeraude for a 'special evening', however, we were slightly disappointed. We had to wait quite long for the first waiter, then we had three different ones, any of them believing obviously that the other one was taking care of us... My fish was a little burnt and hence dry, Moules were fine (as usual), the fish soup (17€)... More

We ate in L'Emeraude this evening. Having read the poor previous reviews I felt duty bound to write on a very positive experience. My partner and I eat out a lot and have done our share of Michelin starred restaurants. Forget many of the old previous reviews, this place is smart, beautifully presented, the staff were more than attentive and... More

We eat here 'for a treat' when in the area. The fish and seafood excellent - fresh, cooked just right, well presented. Staff usually friendly and helpful, which sadly isn't always the case in France these days.
