We have eaten here many times before and it is always reliably sound, if not always inspiring. On this occasion, we had dinner and I wonder if the wine waiter had sampled the merchandise earlier in the day as he was very casual about seating us at our table and, when pouring the wine, managed to pour it over the...

I ate at this restaurant for lunch recently. The location is easy-to-find, on the sea-front just before the point where the port buildings end and the road opens out with a beach on one side and seaside shops opposite. It is almost opposite the Nausicaa recreation centre. On arrival, the restaurant has a rather dark aspect, with furnishings, light fittings... More

Friendly service, excellent food, great wines. Even with the restaurant full, the atmosphere remained quiet and the service fluent. A place I will return to

We were staying in the hotel & had been told by the staff that the restaurant was of a high quality. We booked a table for 19:30 but at 11:45 when our last course has still not arrived we got kicked out into the hotel bar. We picked the fixed menu at around 60 euros per person. We waited one...

Staying in the hotel have us impetus to try the restaurant, particularly as it was open on the Sunday night of our arrival. I think it's pricey...be prepared...but excellent value for very fine dining. Marvellous to be able to indulge and wander back to our room after charming service and delicious food . Expect intense flavours and you won't be... More

We have enjoyed many fine dining experiences and this was one of the best. The food was divine. It was wonderfully varied, beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant is dedicated to seafood and the chefs showed just what can be achieved with the basics of seafood and white fish It was not cheap but as the saying goes "You get... More

My friend and I had a delicious lunch here one Friday where we ate off the tasting menu. The quality of the seafood in particular was memorable as well as the pleasant service. The decor of the restaurant itself is slightly strange, however, the food makes up for this. A pleasant meal!

We selected the menu " saveurs de la mer " , and indeed we had the sea on our plate ! Excellent taste ! Very good cooked salmon , most likely the best restaurant in Bologne sur mer ...
