Paris Mediterranee

Reviewed By Martin K

Emmanuelle and staff warmly welcome you to a local meal of the best possible kind. Even after a little more than a decade, the restaurant, now including an interior courtyard outside, is a hidden gem. Primarily sea food, such as clams with gnocchi, local catches of the day, but also lamb or beef cooked in an original sauce, you will always leave satisfied. Chef Nicolas continues to add spices and originality coming from their latest travels to North Africa, Thailand or even Copenhagen. Desserts are a nice compliment to the main meal. Reserve ahead, as locals are here, mixed with others who have read many of the excellent reviews. Good local wine list, too.

This little restaurant is run by a family very passionate about food made from good local ingredients. We had planned to have the 3 course menu but the portions were so generous that we didn't have room for dessert. Don't expect fast food, take your time and enjoy.

Le mistral

Reviewed By RobstaLewes

Pleasant setting for this small restaurant, tables both inside and out, a very friendly welcome and helpful, prompt service. Good wine selection and prices what you might expect in this part of the world, that is to say, quite high, particularly with the current exchange rate being what it is - and dinner being a la carte. Cash only, note. We had two starters, two mains and a bottle of white wine which came to 76 Euros. Endives in a Roquefort sauce were lovely. The pile of deep-fried shrimp, allegedly a speciality, were a picture on the plate served in a kind of origami poppadom, but, accompanied by some flavourless runny salsa and a dressed lettuce leaf, were nothing special in the mouth. Squid ink risotto served with one grilled king prawn was pleasant, but not memorable (and pricey for what is essentially black rice pudding). The swordfish was grilled satisfactorily but the accompaniments were odd: a single boiled potato with some courgette tagliatelle, plus mini courgettes cut lengthways, and more of the runny salsa, which altogether was just....meh - as other reviewers have described it - a flavourless swamp on a plate. Rather surprised that previous comments to this effect have not been listened to by the management. Declining to risk further disappointment with the pudding selection, we paid and left and probably wouldn't bother to return. We were expecting something outstanding, with flavours to surprise and excite the palate; if this is the best that Sete has to offer, as some have claimed, then perhaps better to eat in another town?

Le Tilapia

Reviewed By 335lebreton

We stopped at Le Tilapia for lunch on the way back from a promenade on the Mole. It is a small family-run restaurant with a menu that varies daily. We had a mackerel salad and a goats cheese salad, and were given a bowl of hummous with bread while waiting for the salads to be prepared. Both were excellent. What was also appreciated was that both the husband and wife owners came to chat with us to ensure that everything was to our liking. Great food, very reasonable prices, and very pleasant hospitality.

Terre et Mer Sete

Restaurant Bistronomique Familial ouvert depuis 2009 , situé face au port de Séte sur la place du quartier du souras bas . Restaurant avec cuisine ouverte ou l'on voit le chef cuisiner les produits frais sous vos yeux .

Reviewed By hellenistic

It didn't start well when I was told that I was too early to book. The reply seemed a bit rude but I thought it must be 'lost in translation'. So I persevered and booked at the accepted time a couple of weeks later.We arrived and the menu looked good encompassing all the good local ingredients. We ordered a pastis as an aperitif. The food was lovely, wine was fine. When we got the bill we were surprised to find that we were charged 8.90 euros for a pastis. When questioned about the cost of the aperitif, the pastis was removed from the bill but the owner was clearly v angry. He wanted to take my partner to a pub to see the cost there. It was a very unpleasant experience. We had thought that we may try to go to the same restaurant the next day as there were more things that we wanted to try but after this unpleasant experience we decided definitely NO! And we went to different restaurant the next night where the pastis was 3 euros so it was clearly an attempt to overcharge.

Sometimes you go to the restaurant to eat, and you are not disappointed. You eat well and leave home happy with the transaction you just made. And when you come to Luigi, it's not just a transaction. Eating at Luigi is a culinary experience. When was the last time you went to the restaurant and the chef came to see you at every moment to inquire about the progress of your meal? It's just a treat. In addition to the culinary delight in the plate, the dishes are made with love and fresh products! Thank you Luigi for sharing your passion and having a treat! Viva Italia! Viva Luigi!

Les Delices de Jade

restaurant traditionnel situé sur le port de Sète avec une terrasse vue sur le canal et les bateaux de pêche, des produits frais et de qualités cuisinés avec le cœur, une majorité de poissons frais cuisinés à la plancha, des plats et spécialités sétoises

Reviewed By opera_fanatic47

What we love about Sète is its unpretentiousness. It is NOT "cute". Rather, it is still an authentic, working fishing port. Thus, while all of the canalside restaurants are in the tourist trade, they haven't transformed the place into something ridiculously twee. We had put Delices de Jade on our list of possible lunch restaurants, and when our hotel recommended it, we felt even better about it. It was December 21, and it was warm enough not only to eat outside, but to do so in a T-shirt and jeans -- I would have worn shorts had I been prepared. So I have no idea what the place is like inside. The owner and the staff are really extremely friendly and welcoming. I decided to go the whole hog: A Sètoise thing called a tielle, which is a kind of octopus pie. I don't know what the best version of a tielle should be like, but I think that Delices de Jade's version is probably only pretty good, though its accompanying salad was very good. I also had 6 oysters on the side which were quite good though they could have been more chilled. As a main dish I had the bourride de lotte, which was fantastic. I thought I could squeeze dessert in, but, as in all restaurants in France, the dessert portion was enormous: an excellent pear-and-chocolate clafoutis with three huge dollops of chantilly on the side. The 3-course menu was 27 euros, plus 9 for the oysters a la carte, plus 4 for a draft beer. So 40 euros total. I think that's pretty darn good. We'd try Delices de Jade again the next time we're in Sète.
