We stopped by without checking the reviews.. our mistake. One needed a magnifying glass to find the fish of they day in the plate and my friend got food poisoning. Avoid.

Although it is clearly a restaurant for tourists, it is well located with friendly staff. But, the daily special I had (beef) had clearly been frozen and thawed, back and forth because I got food poisoning 30 mn after I ate it.

We ate lunch in that restaurant. The fish of the day was small like 50 grams and smelled bad. We couldn't eat it. It was a bad experience. Terrible service, terrible food, terrible atmosphere. Avoid in any case.

Well presented food at reasonable price, Staff very pleasant. I had lamb and mixed vegetables + a grande Stella = €21. 2 baskets of French bread and water came F.O.C. Nice surrounding in summer I would imagine it's a cool place to be 😀

We had salads and beers- and it was a *great* lunch: pretty place, great buskers, good food. With so many negative reviews of the mussels and wine, we went for simple- and had a really happy meal. Simple is the way to go!
