Here is where you come when you want all your fresh seafood fantasies to come true. First the location is perfect, directly facing the marina and Eze. Outdoor seating features heaters when needed and you can only guess the views. Second, the fish is as fresh as you can get. They bring you the whole John Dory and Sea Bass... More

I was able to book a table on line. The restaurant was in an excellent location with a view of the harbour . The menu was excellent although a little difficult to decipher on an iPad. It was my birthday so we ordered lobster which was ok, a little over cooked and cost € 96 . However, the staff were... More

The restaurant is in a gorgeous location along the marina. Very relaxed environment. We went at lunchtime and had the fixed 2 course lunch menu which was great value. Good seafood. Would recommend a visit.

Perfectly situated on the harbour at Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Beautiful terrace. The staff are phenomenal - friendly, professional, a true delight! The food was exquisite, freshly caught fish, beautifully presented dishes. Had the salmon carpaccio - wow!!! This restaurant will surely be fully booked in the high season, so make sure you reserved. It is stunning

It was a sunny winter weekend, I were exploring the area and stopped in the port Cap-Ferrat. I was attracted by the restaurant's display of oysters and sea-food and I got seated in the covered terrace. The staff was quite nice and attentive. We started with a mixed platter of oysters and snails and continued with a seabass cooked in... More

I don't often give 5 stars to any restaurant but La Cabane really justifies it. We stopped here for lunch on a walk around Cap Ferrat. It was cold and windy but the welcome could not have been warmer. The restaurant is on the edge of the harbour so there was activity to see as we lingered over our meal.... More

Nice location on the port but doesn't get the afternoon sun and always open with mood music that wouldn't be for everyone. The food was nice not great and the service was good but slow as understaffed. The prices though are well over the top especially for the wine and even sparkling mineral water. Extremely poor value for money. If... More

Main thing: this restaurant is always opened. There is no this annoying rule with lunch strictly from 12.00 to 14.30 and dinner starting only from 19.00. These guys are open/serving throughout the day! Selection of (sea)food is very good, service amazing, friendly & caring people. PS: they even have a "mascot" cat )))

Lovely place, right on the marina near the Grand Hotel du Cap. We had a good dinner, but made the mistake of ordering the special fish of the night, a sea bass for two, and it was $150! The wine was average. There are better places in the area.

Thank George A
