La Marine in St Cyprien
Reviewed in 2014 by Fiona
FREE HOUSE APERO WHEN YOU MENTION P-O LIFE
First-hand views over the port, ample parking just opposite the Tourist Office, (maybe less ample in high season) outside and inside dining in a cosy nautical atmosphere.
Husband & wife team, Hervé (in the galley) and Valérie (at the helm) offer a wide range of dishes, with the accent on fresh fish, and a 3-course set menu from just 16€.
My friend chose a very copious foie gras salad and I decided on the smoked salmon maison.
Our mains of cuttlefish and a seafood platter (white fish, mussels, squid, sauté potatoes) were big enough to feed an army.
No room left for dessert, but the home-made thickly-coated chocolate profiteroles proved irresistible. (Just a little longer out of the fridge would have made them even better!)
A pleasant, thoughtful and satisfying meal with warm and friendly service.
(PS After the seafood platter, we watched in fascination as the waiter produced a small, flat white pastille on a plate, added hot water, ……and it sprang into life, quadrupled in size, turning into the best beautifully hot hand cloth I’ve ever seen!)
