Visited Rubens on a wet October evening in a party of 12 golfers. Great food with attentive, friendly service and a busy, buzzy atmosphere. Not cheap at 70 euros a head, but we did havee 9 bottles of (house) wine! Highly recommended.

Difficult to find table and can experience long waiting time even in September. Otherwise nice place on the promenade with good food. One can opt for Royal 50 meters on the other side of the square.
