We went to this restaurant as it was within walking distance from our hotel. It was recommended to us,mainly fish dishes, a couple of alternative choices, starters were good, we had steak for the main, it was like a large rib of beef for two to share, far too many chips, no vegetables Thought it was rather expensive, two starters,...

The best of the best - fantastic seafood - can't get fresher. Delightful staff who are dedicated to ensuring you have a wonderful time. Even blankets when needed. I will be back.

We had dinner there last weekend and it was lovely. The food is always excellent (it was our fifth time there at least) and the staff is really nice. Plus wonderful views of the sea so that's a bonus! Definitely a place I recommend.

A very good seafood restaurant, if a little pricey. Staff very friendly and the views from the clifftop location are stunning

Not the most original title for this foody edifice but no other title is appropriate ! An aperitif 'en terrace' is a great beginning with th Bay of Gasgogne at your feet. A decidedly 'fishy' menu, short but entirely sufficient will satisfy most palates. An 'amuse bouche' of a tuna delicacy was followed by a masquerade of Mackerel. We also... More

Recommended by trip advisor's member we went there for lunch. Very very nice service, simple dishes but very good quality. We had the calamari and the crab. Very good wine. A very little bit expensive because the portions are small (92€ for 2). I recommend, though for the wonderful view.

The place is quite nice, decorated with traditional good taste. Food is also very good. Price is a little overpriced. The disappointment was one of the waitress that resulted really disgusting. I think that the owners have very good intentions and know how to treat the customers, but it would be great if they could teach that waitress that was... More

Well served food, beautiful location but challenging to get there the first time. The service is very friendly the fish is fresh and if you share the appetisers you can enjoy the variety they propose. View over the sea is stunning.

Lovely modern restaurant with great views over the ocean. Christian and his family make everyone feel very welcome. Go at Sunset during the summer for an aperitif on the deck looking out over the ocean. The food is simple and done well. Great place for family, big gathering of friends or a dinner as a couple.
