Really great value and quality. Good kids options, and they know the value of getting the kids food out quickly to keep them happy! Had the set menu with escargots and the seafood platter in the picture - excellent!

Lovely service - the whole feel of the evening was authentically french somehow. The restaurant filled up mostly with folks staying at the hotel here - they were warm and friendly and the food (we both had fish dishes) was superb. Great wine list also....More

Decent seafood restaurant on the Main Street. Outside seating which fills very quickly in summer, so book in advance. Good quality fish and shellfish with plenty of options, so choose well to get the best value. Our waiter was helpful and attentive and we were...More
