Ship Ahoy! Eating out in St.Raphael

So the kids’ club team and I decided to have a girly night! YES.

After lots of discussions we decided on heading into St Raphael to sink a few ships and enjoy the delights of ‘Le Corsaire’.

The restaurant was kindly recommended to us by an Al Fresco customer on La Baume campsite and given the good review we decided to have a change and try it out for ourselves. Of course there’s the newly refurbished restaurant on site offering good quality meats and fresh seafood, along with the take-away offering different types of pizza, pasta dishes, croque monsieur, fries and burgers.

On entering the restaurant we realised Le Corsaire was not just any old eatery in St Raphael….it was pirate themed! Statues of pirates and ships were hidden around all corners of the restaurant along with the parrots dangling from the ceilings. Skulls were poking out of palm trees, causing a slight eerie but intriguing feel about the place.

House specials included very traditional French themed dishes with ‘choucroute de la mer’ (seafood platter) and ‘marmite du pecheur’ (marmite served on freshly caught fish) being advertised.

However I tucked into a very British meal of succulent steak, which was cooked to perfection and served with fresh vegetables and chunky chips whilst the girls opted for a more Italian affair with spaghetti bolognaise.

Strange some may think considering we’re in France but this restaurant really did offer food from all over the world. Perfect for the families who often debate, when eating out, whether to go traditional for the local area or stick to what they know.

Le Corsaire offers a fantastic 3 course meal for 19.90 euros per head and some of the starter choices include: goat’s cheese on a bed of salad, stuffed tomatoes or scallop pate. The choices of main dishes are endless but here’s a few: Succulent rump steak, langoustines and seafood platters. Desserts include cheese boards, chocolate mousse, fresh fruit salads and ice creams.

So I appeal to the culinary nature of my readers and ask you to share your experiences and recommendations on eating out in St Raphael whilst on your holiday in France with Al Fresco :)
