Found this place via TripAdvisor whilst visiting Deauville and decided to try it for lunch after reading the glowing reviews. We were a group of 4 and lucky enough to get a table without booking - it's a small fishmonger/restaurant combo and the place filled up really quickly after we sat down, so I would recommend reserving in advance if...

The concept is a fish market, and also a restaurant. You will eat the best fish of the Atlantic Ocean French coast, Fish Saint Pierre, Le Lot, and excellent Lobster. Excellent option in Deuville. Anything can be more fresh than what you get there... Price ratio very good also

This is a superb fish monger with tables inside and out . The place gets very busy so booking is advisable . We went twice for lunch and had to queue on both occasions but it was worth it . Anything the shop sells is available in the restaurant so it is extremely fresh and tasty. They are open all... More

What can I say, food was fantastic, we learnt that the owners family are fishermen and supply the local restaurant so clearly they get first choice , we ate very well and drank delicious wine at lunch for 150 euros, that included a plateau royal and scallops, bottle of wine and water. It wa she best meal In Deauville. Service... More

It's a pity this place is only open at lunch time. It's primarily a fish shop but with a truly excellent restaurant attached. The atmosphere is informal and the food is some of the best we encountered in France. Supremely fresh fish cooked to perfection. A bit on the prices side but worth it.

Fish shop selling fresh fish, but for lunch they serve dishes as well. We ate an excellent seafood platter for an excellent price. They serve good wines. Not a very romantic place , just go for the excellent fresh food and you will really enjoy! You can watch the people who prepare the food.

This is by default a fish shop for buying fresh fish, while for lunch they serve dishes. We had a lovely and delicious lunch: grilled gambas and grilled sole with vegetables. Succulent, well prepared, fresh, mouth watering! It was simple, no fuss, excellent and perfect service. I do recommend this place if you are looking for a nice fish restaurant... More

My wife and I selected Etoile des Mers for an anniversary lunch. Why ? Because we walked by, then walked in and discovered this restaurant is totally about fish - all fish, the freshest fish, displayed gloriously!

This was an unexpected experience that really just stumbled upon. It is a seafood ONLY restaurant. All the seafood is just caught and on display for sale or for ordering. It is expensive but SO worth it. We had oysters (opened for us), fresh dover sole and grilled gambas. What a treat.

We visited twice for lunch Etoile des Mers the second visit better than the first. This casual fish and seafood restaurant is tucked away in back, behind a plastic curtain of a fresh seafood and fish shop. The style is casual with high tables and bar stools plus other tables. Many locals ordered the daily lunch special reasonably priced. Service... More
