“Amateurish attempts in French cuisine”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Salade Nicoise without olives, green beans, new potatoes, half a hard boiled egg and tinned tuna half a red and green pepper sitting on top of mixed greens with a teaspoon of oil and vinegar is what Spiagga considers to be a Salade Nicoise. Service is slow and gruff on the dining deck with English speaking customers and outright non-existent on the beach : I ordered a beer that never arrived and was promptly charged for. My son's Mixte' Frite was served with zero presentation; not at all what you are a paying a premium price for. The tables on the deck are crammed too closely together: the poor woman sitting behind me was surely as annoyed as much as I was, every time either of us moved the flimsy plastic chairs pushed up against the other. This place is obviously relying on their stunning sea view. I have never been there before and most certainly won' t be back!

“Today the best beach "at the beach" establishment in Cagnes-sur-Mer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

And in our they have now (July 2013) taken over the lead from the many-years ruling # 1: Cigalon Plage, - and have developped the consept by perfection, - except on: Services in/by the restaurant is normally very slow - at least during lunch-hours.
They have a very pleasant and airy set-up of their sunbeds and parasolles,- good space inbetween, and high quality madrasses and equipment,- clean with a pleasant and entusiastic staff

Restaurant-deck (or you can be served on trhe beach "bed-side"), is also spacy and not too tight/crowdy by tables. Menu and winelist is very good,- and for a luch we fell for their Salade Exotic, - and perhaps their blueshells,- and the selection of rosè wines . . .

“Downhill on full throttle”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

La Spiaggia never was a gourmet restaurant, but until last year they still served decent food for a correct price, and the discreet cordiality of the staff was one of the reason we frequently preferred this restaurant to the many others lining the beach. This year it has gone downhill full speed. The food is terribly greasy, the smoked salmon isn't smoked anymore but of the cheapest quality, the 'white butter sauce' is thinned down with oil and your glass of white vine served diluted with lots of ice cubes. Although the location didn't change, the place doesn't seem to be the same anymore.

“Good Seafood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2012

Loved the view and the location! The service was good and consistent throughout the evening. She gave us tap water right away and our drinks arrived quickly. The salmon tartar was delicious and fresh tasting. If they make it the same all the time, then I recommend it. Our food was average, but better than some of the other sea side restaurants.
