We were on a bit of a Gastro short break so we had to eat here as we knew how good it would be. We were by no means dissapointed, just as you would expect from a traditional French Restaurant. We went for the set menu of the season which was superb plus some really good wines to support it.... More

We are there on a Sunday evening. It was very good - with a limited menu of very good dishes. It came with amuse bouche and treat for after - which when you have had the sweet apple pudding felt like too much! It's not cheap but it is good.

I have to admit, my expectations were a bit high... The lady at the reception of my hotel told me it was expensive but very good. Don't let her fool you, it was just expensive. Ok the food and wines were not bad, but not what you expect in this price range. For example my main course, a rack of... More

We have eaten here many times before and it is always reliably sound, if not always inspiring. On this occasion, we had dinner and I wonder if the wine waiter had sampled the merchandise earlier in the day as he was very casual about seating us at our table and, when pouring the wine, managed to pour it over the...

I ate at this restaurant for lunch recently. The location is easy-to-find, on the sea-front just before the point where the port buildings end and the road opens out with a beach on one side and seaside shops opposite. It is almost opposite the Nausicaa recreation centre. On arrival, the restaurant has a rather dark aspect, with furnishings, light fittings... More

Friendly service, excellent food, great wines. Even with the restaurant full, the atmosphere remained quiet and the service fluent. A place I will return to

We were staying in the hotel & had been told by the staff that the restaurant was of a high quality. We booked a table for 19:30 but at 11:45 when our last course has still not arrived we got kicked out into the hotel bar. We picked the fixed menu at around 60 euros per person. We waited one...

Staying in the hotel have us impetus to try the restaurant, particularly as it was open on the Sunday night of our arrival. I think it's pricey...be prepared...but excellent value for very fine dining. Marvellous to be able to indulge and wander back to our room after charming service and delicious food . Expect intense flavours and you won't be... More
