Reviewed 12 October 2011

If bad service , disappointing food and professional incompetence are what you will accept from a well-recommended restaurant then this is the place for you. Good points? Yes the viiew is great and the restaurant floor goes round and round.

“Great views and great food”
Reviewed 27 August 2011

This restaurant is at the top of an old converted water tower in Palavas. It is about a 10 minute walk from the beach. Be aware that is costs 3 EUR per adult (2 for children) to go up an elevator to get to it, which isn't refunded. The view from the top is wonderful though, and you can go up the elevator to a bar without any further charge.
The restaurant is then up another (free) elevator. We went midweek for lunch around 1pm, and we got a table for 6 without having to reserve. The wine was lovely, and the food was lovely. Difficult if you don't know much French though, as the restaurant was a very good one, and as such their menu was very complicated. We went for the 22 EUR set two course meal, and just had one of each option - same for the kids at about 10 EUR per meal. This worked well as it was essentially a fish dish and a meat dish.
There were English menus available, but the translations were so bad that they were pointless. They were very funny though, particularly the childs meal, which I think was guinea fowl, and was translated as something to do with a pavement :)
Most expensive restaurant that we went to all week, but well worth it.
