This is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the water with a good range of French food, specialising in local seafood. The owner and chef is helpful, explains the meals and is very proud of his establishment.

A friend of ours who lives nearby took us there, but she hadn't had lunch there for quite a while, and apologized afterwards for taking us. Expensive; nice names on the menu for mediocre food; service seemingly friendly, but impatient and eager to make you...More

Excellent food - a litte pricey but worth every penny. Lovely setting overlooking the sea inlet at Port de Larros. We had the best fish and steak there as we watched the sun set.

As an appetizer, I had chosen the stuffed mussels, they were huge, a bit tough and had too much breading on top, a bit too plentiful for an appetizer. I had chosen the flank steak with shallots and was served a steak which should have...More

First I had the gratinated shelf-fish (assiette the coquillages gratinees) which was nice although I prefer some garlic on these creatures. But then the daurade was served! Never eaten such a delicious fish. Gosh... And the desert (Moelleux with creme anglaise) was also fabulous. Highly...More
