    Market Halls: Sea Food Apero for a real taste of Sete spirit !

    by Tiss Written Jul 5, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    nybhygMarket Hall in the city center is at heart of all people living in Sete; it's a popular place, locals invaded, and a custom for many of people living there.

    In the very centre of the Market Hall, a bunch of simple tables next to a Sea Food merchant.

    Here you are, go to order some fresh seafood ( from the morning fishing) and compose your owns small seafood platter.
    Then, from the Market Bar someone will come to ask you what you wanna drink ... ( white wine naturally ). Prices are really reasonable , and it's little luxury almost everybody can afford ( wide range of choice for the seafood from 3/5 euros, but you have to value quality over quantity).
    Hang quickly around the Market Hall to find the Tielles Shops and bring one to your table as well... enhance your apero-lunch experience with this very specialy from Sete ( it's an octopus pie).

    The atmosphere's unique but if you don't feel good inside the Market Hall, you also might take a sit in the terrasse of the nearby bar " le bistrot du Marché" with your seafood plates... they have a nice selection of wine and it's also a really popular café in Sete.

    I often go there with friends, so really it's not fo' tourists exclusively and there are many french and locals.

    Additional tips : the weekly local open-air market is on wednesdays, and it's a great one... you might find a lot of local products to quickly settle a fresh and local pic-nic : ewe cheese, seasonal fruits ( in summer don't miss the Melon from our region), fresh tapenade, deli meat and so on...

    Bon appetit !

    Favorite Dish: the " couteaux gratinés" ( razor shell au gratin) and the " bulots" ( whelk) and "oursins". ( sea urchin).

    Le Jasmin: Vietnamian cooking for a change!

    by JLBG Written Jan 5, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though I had to list it here under "Chinese restaurant", Le Jasmin is not a Chinese restaurant but a Vietnamian restaurant, which is fairly different. They have an excellent cooking. The customers are mostly locals and you have better book in advance as it is often packed. The owner/manager is very welcoming.

    Favorite Dish: We had:
    Fried Wan-Thanh
    My-xao with shrimps
    Hot Xa-the duck
    Everything was excellent

  • Les Trois Plaisirs: Great cooking, good price

    by nosluo Written Jun 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Been there a few times and would strongly recommend.

    The chef must have worked in some Michelin restaurants as the cooking is inventive and of a high standard. The prices are good for the quality on offer. The truffe au chocolate is excellent. Had a great magret de canard and The rack of lamb is worth a try.

    It's at 6 rue de savonnierie, across the bridge from the more touristy restaurants.

    The couple who run it are extremely friendly and the woman does speak English. Small restaurant, personable service.

    Favorite Dish: Truffe au chocolate and the creme brulee with pistacho.

    Excellent salad de foie gras with confiture of violets.

    Le Menu.
    3 more images

    We had the Plat de Jour here after having a relaxing coffee and deciding to stay put.
    We tried to translate other items on the menu but were stuck on gresiers and magret- so went with the Plat!

    Favorite Dish: We all had the escalope de veau, with frites and salad- great value for 9.50 Euros.It was served on huge plates- great for us greedies!
    We asked the waiter what gresiers were and he struggled to explain- bringing inthe other waiters to try to explain.They all patted their tummies and seemed to say-'filtre de l'eau'.So we thought it was kidneys ( of duck).Glad we hadn't chosen it.

    We've since found out it's gizzards!Even more relieved we didn't have it.
    I think the magret was a breast of duck.

    Lovely meal, watching the comings and goings of the locals going about their business.

    THE RESTAURANT IT RIGHT NEXT TO THE HARBOUR, AS WITH MOST FRENCH EATERIES IT HAS TABLES OUTSIDE ASWELL AS TABLE IN THE SHADE. WE CHOOSE AN TABLE JUST INSIDE (SO STILL GETTING THE HEAT OF THE SUN BUT IN THE SHADE) THIS IS ONE OF THE SMALLER PLACES ON THE FRONT.THE SERVIS WE GOT WAS VERY FRIENDLY TO OUR LITTLE FRENCH. AND ALWAYS MAKING SURE WE WERE FINE. WITH GOOD NIBBLES BEFORE THE MEAL WITH A FREE LOCAL TIPPLE WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR STARTER. NOW GET YOU VERY WELL PRESENTED DISH MADE OF THE FRESHIST FISH YOU CAN GET AND COOKED TO PERFECTION. WITH SET MEALS FROM JUST 7euros ALLSO CHILDS MENU AVAILABLE. THERE WAS 7 PEOPLE IN OUR GROUP INCLUDING 3 CHILDREN AS EVERYONE WAS IMPRESSED. AND THEY WERE GREAT WITH THE KIDS. WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR...

    Favorite Dish: DIDNT SEE A DISH IN THE RESTAURANT THAT LOOKED BAD.

    Restuarant La Corniche: Noisy location but good value for money

    by Waoife Updated Sep 19, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is in the middle of the road near the casino in La Corniche which makes eating outside a bit noisy with the traffic going by on both sides but then again that's a problem with pretty much every restaurant in this area.

    Favorite Dish: The set menus are particularly good value - around €17 for 3 courses.

    Les Go��lands

    There are plenty of restaurants along the quay. None are bad but some are better than others. In les Goëlands, we had a Rouille Sétoise and a Plateau de Fruits de mer (same than in Le Jacaré)
