The moules where over-cooked and the meat raw. Friendly waitress though. The food was lacking basic respect for customer.

Expensive especially since it was not good at all. Highly recommended with great views of the port. but we found it to be less than stellar. The fish we ordered was dry; tasted old and we ordered two different dinners! End of the season so end of the freezer? Service was unfriendly and rude.

Ordered sardines. I didn't believe the first one. The second one confirmed my view. The third one was uneaten. Bland overpriced good as only the French can do. I don't get the hype on French food It's old fashioned with no fusion nor taste

We are two Americans who do not speak any French. We walked around the harbor looking at the menus wanting to try something new, but none were in English. We eventually settled on this restaurant as we recognized 'burger' on the menu. When we sat down at an outside table, we were handed menus in English. Boy did we feel... More

I needed to take a break and have beer and they accommodated me despite being on their mid afternoon break that many French restaurants take. I did not eat here, but for their service alone I gave them a four.

I think this restaurant is probably typical of what to expect in a small seaside town. Not very expensive, not very memorable, but perfectly fine for what they offer. Moules mariniere with prawns and fried calamari. All fresh, at reasonable prices.

Menu with lots to choose from whether you want pasta with foie gras, risotto, fresh fish or a burger. Tables outside or inside to choose from next to the port. Owner is welcoming and friendly. Took people for their first time and they enjoyed it and will return.

We visited this restaurant this afternoon as a family. Seated straight away but had to sit inside due to it being so busy. This was not a problem as the windows and doors were open and we still had a lovely view of the harbor. The service was fast and friendly and the food was very nice. There was a... More
