On a wet & cold Sunday (the outer edge of hurricane irma?) we arrived at 8 to find this bistro buzzing. The waiter seemed pleased that we asked to sit outside (as this was the only free table) The heating was great - an occasional...More

We've eaten here a few times and enjoyed it. It's always lively, they don't take reservations, so getting a table can be pot luck. Coming early and sitting with a drink works well, but this evening we turned up at around 8.30 and waited for...More

We were disappointed by the food. High expectations (from other reviews) were not met. Food la-la. Diffifult to get outside table.

The best oysters, catch of the day and local wine. Great atmosphere and staff. You're going to love this one.

Service was really friendly and efficient and the food was good. Great atmosphere, would happily go again. The only minor issue was not too much choice for our five and seven year olds, but what was available was good.

This harbour front bistro is a very busy little spot. Almost everyone wants to sit outside so we were happy that we got seated immediately inside. Quaint little bar with lots of photos and bric-a-brac adorning the walls and ceiling. Drinks ordered and promptly supplied...More

Very friendly service and great selection of wines. We all ate Cote du Boeuf - it is simple but tastes fantastic with the chips and sauces. I am normally a fish eater but every time I come here I never regret choosing this dish !
