La Salinoise has to be one of the biggest surprises I have had in awhile. It doesn’t look like much from the outside but appearances are deceiving. It was better than a lot of places I have eaten on the side of a beach in France. It is situated in Hyères and is excellent. We went with some of the family who must be a regular of the place because they seemed to know the owners. The place was packed which I tend to consider as a good sign for a restaurant. As I mentioned, appearances are deceiving. The restaurant is by no means fancy. It is mostly outside on the terrace with a couple of air conditioner fan to keep us a bit cool.
The food however is excellent and the portions very generous. I ordered a salmon caesar salad and I could barely finish it because it was so big. The fish tasted fresh and delicious as well as the vegetables. The tomatoes were juicy and the salad crispy. I found the whole dish to be fresh and light on the stomach. Perfect for a day spent in the sun.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by La Salinoise. I didn’t expect much when I sat down for our meal, but left very happy and with a smile on my face. The prices also seem very reasonable (especially for the quantity and the quality). I highly suggest you swing by this place if you are around this area. And why not make a beach day out of it and enjoy the ocean?
