This restaurant has it all on the beach at Theoule. The food is delicious, the location beyond compare and the staff fantastic. Christian looks after us magnificently and always has done. This is my favourite place in the world to be, to relax, to spend hours sitting on the beach, children playing in the waves in the hot hot sun or snuggled inside with the rain and cold blowing up outside and the windows getting misty. A trip to the area simply not complete without it. It has seen almost all of our celebrations of important events and there is no place I would rather they be.

The location right on the beach with sweeping views across the bay to Cannes is of course a big draw, even in the bleak mid winter. One of the few places open for Sunday lunch in late December. We were warmly received, without reservations, and prompty seated. Within 30 mins of us arriving the restaurant had almost completely filled up so we were lucky to get a table. Service is smiling and very correct, efficient without being obtrusive. The food on the other hand is average at best. Nothing particularly wrong with it but just very unmemorable, I am even now struggling to remember what excaty I had some 10 days ago. Would I return? Yes maybe for a short lunch in the summer to appreciate the sea side setting but certainly not for an extensive dinner.

Great location, Friendly staff, and a feeling that you are in a slightly 'better' restaurant, without paying a hefty penalty. Yes, it was a little more expensive than the usual beach-side pizza places, but that's because you're paying for quality. As veggies, there was very little for us to eat - of course the ubiquitous goat's cheese salad (with honey and probably very good, but we avoided it - there is only so much goat's cheese salad a person can take in one lifetime) and a rather good three pepper salad, where the peppers have been skinned and marinated in olive oil. This coupled with some good local wine at a reasonable price and the added joy of a an occasional splash from the Med around our feet made it quite memorable. I'd go back any time. Beware that parking in summer is difficult, so if you find a place on the way into Theoule, take it and walk.

Marco Polo @ Theoule sur mer has always been our favourite beach bar & restaurant on La Cote D'Azur.
We have been coming here for over 10 years & this was our umpteenth visit !
During our recent stay we introduced Marco Polo to some people we met & they enjoyed it as much as we do!
It is not at all posh, a beach bar during the day where you can relax have a drink & order snacks in a relaxed environment & listen to some cool tunes,& dip your toes in the Med!
This time though it was noticeable that the evening meals had improved by leaps & bounds !
Steaks fish fruits de mer all served up in a great atmosphere.
Do go if you are in the area.You will enjoy !!

We were in a party of 45 for a 3 course lunch here, and everything was perfect. The food was hot delicious and served with a smile by the owner and his team. The location is right on the beach and only a few feet from the waters edge so we were able to have a quick swim between the main course and dessert. This place opened in 1950 and still a great place for lunch or dinner.
