The weather was cooperative and we sat near the water with little boats passing by once in a while. The place can accommodate a huge amount of people in- and outside, but still the atmosphere is nice.
We ordered a variety of dishes from the small-ish menu to be shared. Particularly delicious was the Plateu Fruit de Mer platter, although I'd expected it to be hot, not cold. With bitter balls, bread, salads, olives and some desserts we managed to keep the meal affordable, but the food isn't very cheap here. The draft beer was tasty.
Staff was attentive and helpful.

We were a party of four for dinner on a very hot night. Sat outside on the river and enjoyed the sharing platter (huge!) and the terrific Portugese fish stew. Good attentive service. The place is now much more accessible courtesy of the north south line. Highly recommended.

The setting is pretty nice......in a wharehouse-like area right on the canal.....large, open space inside with a lot of tables outside as well. Menu is mainly seafood and although the food was pretty good, it wasn't anything special and prices not cheap. Service was good, decent selection of drinks. Overall cool setting but nothing special to go out of your way for.

The receptionist at our hotel recommended this place. We ordered some croquettes and plateau fruit de mer and they are amazing. Fresh clams, oysters, shrimps. The staff are very friendly and nice to us. Watching boats going by, sipping mimosa, best lunch we could ever asked for.

Nice location right on the water. Cool breeze on a hot day. Good for drinks and a bite to eat.Easy to get to and find. Parking available. I went for oysters, saw they had oyster happy hour also. So I made 2 visits. I enjoyed the oysters, a little salad on the side. Limited beer selection.
