Our small family--2 adults, one teenager, and a boxer--had no reservation, and we ate very well. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious and pleasing to the eye. Stand-outs--grapefruit/orange butter; lemony avocado purée over oysters; cheese cart; mille feuille with vanilla dessert; coconut foam sweet creation. Cost was not a surprise and fitting to the venue. ~100€/pp.

Visited this restaurant with high expectations but left it all feeling a bit underwhelmed. Usually visiting a starred restaurant on a 6 course menu you would expect at least two exceptional dishes and in fact there were none and only one very good flavour wise let down a bit by variable presentation surprisingly. What was most disappointing was the lack... More

A great food experience - among top ten in our lives. Service was outstanding - my wife felt sometimes a bit too much. We rate four in stead of five because of the somewhat strange ambiance / design. Easy to fix:-)

We come here every summer when on vacation. It is a reliable and friendly gastronomic experience with a good list of local wines to match. We took the menu surprise which was a well designed sequence of dishes, with some little surprises indeed. Check out the cheese tray. Also, ensure you have a table in the garden (patio).

The service was really attentive, with all the trimmings. They do a 3 course meal for 33euro this is limited course and can be obtained in the evening. but excellent and cheaper then a meal at so many of the other places. The whole ambience is excellent

Not much to see from outside but highly rated in the area as one of the places to go for top quality food. Very helpful staff only too pleased to offer alternatives and apparently as I found out too late one of their specialities is suckling pig. So I will be back. Well worth a visit for another fine dining... More

Faultless, unhurried service, a great wine list and beautiful food. Mostly fish and seafood, but not exclusively so. The recently awarded Michelin star is well-merited and the prices remain surprisingly modest. If you eat from the Formule offering two choices for each course at dinner, it's even better value than the famously well-priced set menus at Geoffrey Smeddle's Peat Inn... More

Octopus is a 1 star Mich resto that deserves that AT LEAST ! Great value for a beautiful dining experience set in lovely outdoor courtyard. The several menus are billed as "surprise", but we made several requests from the carte and were pleasantly accommodated. The staff is efficient, welcoming and happy to serve your every need. The lobster, roasted and... More
