Le Merluberlu

Sustainable tourism

Pêche locale, majoritairement sur petits bateaux = moins de chalut.

Services for children

Une chaise haute et un rehausseur à disposition. Menu enfant.

At lunchtime, the Merluberlu offers a cuisine based on fresh products and fish from our coast. The signature: the octopus dish prepared under different recipes. In the evening, it’s time for the bistro and the tapas of the sea (home-made of course).

Located on the Old Port, quai Valin at the foot of the green lighthouse, the Merluberlu has the best placed terrace to enjoy the sunset. We come there to share, to have a drink facing the Towers and we don’t forbid ourselves to party until midnight or even 2am when a concert is organized or when the atmosphere is as often the case.
At noon, under the umbrellas, you can enjoy the cuisine at the foot of the boats in the port, including part of the Maritime Museum fleet.
A relaxed team welcomes you for lunch and dinner so that you can have a good time, around the products of our coasts and a drinks menu proposing cocktails, beers and wines selected by Julien the boatman.
