Beautiful food and great service, even if the welcome was a little bit cooler than I am used to! Food was beautifully presented and tasted scrumptious.

We had the fixed menu €44...well worth the money! Especially the seafood risotto, fresh sea bass and crepes suzette...Definitely recommend. Right on the seafront. With stunning views.

This seaside restaurant is an elegant place with excellent fresh seafood. Very polished classic French service yet all at once very warm and welcoming. This is a wonderful place.

Can't believe we were sitting outside in the February sunshine with a sea view tucking into excellent seafood. This restaurant must be booked solid in the height of season and why not.

Do not hesitate to eat here. Everything is fresh, tasty, and the view of the bay is wonderful. Ask the waiter about the catch of the day, try some oysters, and of course do not forget about an excellent rose Cotes de Provence. Lunch was a delight

I had an excellent lunch, with the fish cooked to perfection.....very fresh and very moist....accompanied by a variety of equally well prepared vegetables. The Crèpes Suzette dessert finished the meal appropriately. The service was lackluster.
