Wonderful rustic food served in a causal setting on the beach. Limited menu but what they have is excellent. Had the lobster which was delicious. Included an entree and dessert. Reasonable French wine available with excellent service. Definitely worth the walk if you are staying...More

You Must Eat Lobster here as long as you stay in Ile Des Pins Since I had Lobster here, I can't eat any Lobster except made by Kou-gny(This is the only side effect of kou-gny) I wonder why Kou-gny didn't have Michelin Stars!!!!

This is not good value. For approx $60 you can get a seafood buffet. But there are no fresh salads, just pasta and rice and only 2 types of seafood. It's not that it's bad, it's just hugely over priced compared to spending $15 on...More

Booked the package for the Isle of Pines trip that included the ferry boat return ticket and the buffet at the Kou-Bugny restaurant. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the buffet was more focused on sea food dishes. Was disappointed and expected more variety...More

We had a good time here despite some of the reviews! We didn't have anything to complain about to be honest! We had breakfast as part of our meal plan for our hotel room and it was great! I don't know why people are saying...More
