A warm corner in the winter. Ideal for an intimate evening à Deux. The fish is outstanding but not much in the way of meats. All dishes are beautifully prepared and served. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Wines are good but dear - one can usually find something from the Loire which won't break the bank. Avoid Burgundies and... More

Brother of Christopher Coustanceau of ** Michelin of the same name. Very high quality local seafood and located right on the quay with beautiful panorama of the harbour etc. All were friendly and helpful, we had two varieties of local oysters then Dover sole (superbly fresh) and lobster. Memorable. Not expensive for where it is/what you get/quality/location. The brothers also... More

we had a dinner hère. I really wanted thé langoustines and got a huge pile of them( 500gm for 39E) They were smaller than I would've wished and therefore difficult to eat. Better choices were thé beautifully prepared dishes-razor clams with pie au cochon. very élégant and delicious. The spécial oysters were very fresh and delicious but cost 3E each.... More

Booked a table and arrived a few minutes early, so plenty of time to peruse menu. Head waiter arrived to take our order almost immediately, so we asked for more time. On his return I ordered but my partner was unsure about his starter - ummed and ahhed a bit and asked a few questions. At which point the maitre... More

Nice restaurant but over-priced - 2 courses each for myself and my partner and 5 drinks came to €182. Whilst we enjoyed the meal, tasty starters and excellent fish mains though slightly odd accompaniments - it was the price of a Michelin restaurant and it wasn't in that league in our humble opinion...

The wine and drinks menu is very extensive and a little expensive. I am no food buff but the presentation and quality of our meals where great not cheap by any means but the place was full so that must say something. We booked online as a celebration and the restaurant were kind enough to acknowledge our celebration. The staff... More

We went as a family of 6 to have a lunch. The place is really nice and close to the city centre. The dishes were very well done with local ingredients, fish of course but also some other local propositions . The wine card is centered on french vineyard but only qualities one. I can only give my compliments to... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal, the wine was slightly over priced for the vintages and chateaux names. The staff were very helpful and also some spoke English which was useful at times
