Over the years we have gone to Le Boucanier. I recently say a negative review so we decided to return to find out as we have recommeded this to people in the area in the past, we enjoyed it so much on this recent visit we returned again about a week latter We love their Soupe de Poisson which I think is one of the best in the Cote D'Azur. We also like their moules and the fish dishes on the menu which is usually dorade, bar or loup. All are fresh and perfectly cooked.Unlike the other review we have never had a problem with the service. You must understand that this is a busy seafront restaurant in a popular area for regulars and tourists were they serve a lot of people each day, This is not the place you get chatty service with someone coming by every few minutes asking if you are enjoying your meal. But when you need someone they are there for you, For example on our recent visit my fish soup was not hot When we told the waiter he apologized and immediately returned with a fresh helping that was steaming hot and delicious. So great I was offered and had a second bowl. At the end of the evening when things dd quiet down the staff did spend some time to chat with us From the price point it is great value

We have been to Boucanier so many times and at one point they were loosing their good reputation for good food. This year we tried it again and we were happy to know they have regained their reputation . The food was very good, salads fresh. Fish dishes are cooked to perfection. I noticed from the other comments on this page about the unfriendly attitude of the waiters/ waitresses. Well I have decided to stop looking out for unfriendly attitudes and behaviour when in France or else we would end up eating at home everyday. We were
pleased with the service .

We have been regulars here for 20 years - the beach adjacent suited the fact we all had children we've had big birthdays, celebrations and anniversaries here. Overall the food was ok - it was convenient for us - had some good times there and wouldn't like to think how much we paid them - however finally can take the rude poor attitude and service and over priced food no longer. The final few years were only sustained by one good member of staff who now works in another local venue. We will not be going back unless we feel the need to revisit arrogant rudeness from the senior waiters and management and an expensive menu for what it is.

The restaurant is located at the marina and has a large terrace with a dean sandy beach adjacent to it. When our kids were small we used to watch them paddling in the sea while we finished ourc meal, or had coffee. The food is very good for sole meneuier, fish soup, salads, oysters, and similar but I would not say it is a gastronomic feast...it is up market bistro and I would say for that it is somewhat pricey.

The service is excellent, and the restaurant has a year ago improved the toilets etc. to a very high standard.

The price, value and the quality of food has all been rather good.
The menu was available for non french speakers, great for visitors.

The menu sets are great, a good price and yet at a great value considering the portions were the same as that of the normal a la carte.

Definitely the highlight of dining in this part of the neighbourhood.
