4 of us had dinner at Le Calamar en Folie (the stupid sqiud) and we had a lovely evening. As it had been dry for a long while, the etang had dried up, but the sunset made up for that! 2 of us ordered Gaspacho for starter and were surprised to see it was made principally with beetroot. Rather unusual.... More

What a surprise, this lovely restaurant close to La Franqui. The view is beautiful and the restaurant looks nice, but the food and the people make all the difference. The dishes are special and ambitious, but well prepared and very tasty. The pleasant owners/staff give your stay and your lunch or diner an extra dimension. Highly recommended!

This Restaurant is something totally special on all levels. The owner and his wife greets you as long lost friends when you arrive, the food is tasteful and beautifully arranged, the atmosphere is laid back and warm. The surroundings are magnificent especially at sunset. But most of all the owners and the staff are so positive and will do anything... More

Very nice place with a beautiful sunset view on the bay and good food. Nice menu with seafood, including squid cooked in all different ways. Polite staff and good service. Nothing very exceptional but decent.

If there's one thing the French know how to do, it's food. Well this place doesn't. The one thing it's supposed to do well, squid as per the name, was one of the blandest meals I've had in France in the one year I've been living here. I tried the platter of all squid varieties and only the squid in... More
