Tucked away behind the fish shop away from the town centre is Auberge du Pecheur. The garden it is set in is very nice and there is more a fine dining experience than the harbour restaurants. The staff are obviously better trained also which adds to the service element, although not spot on - we arrived as a couple with no reservation and were shown to an out of the way table when there were few people in the restaurant. Apparently it was all booked although it didnt get busy for another one and a half hours, and the waiter carved our fish with a regular knife and fork rather than proper fish utensils. For a speciality fish restaurant the food should have been better. I have regularly made better fish soups and the main baked fish for two people was a bit flavourless (i actually suggest the method of baking it with a hard salted crusty shell actually extracts moisture and flavour rather than infusing it into the fish). On the otherhand the tuna carpaccio was excellent and i would be very keen to eat that again. Overall you can find tastier meals for 50% of the price elsewhere in st florent, but the setting and the higher calibre service perhaps warrants a small premium if they can get the food right.
