Food was great as was service. The salmon, bouillabaisse and Creme brûlée are my favorites. My husband also likes the chocolate terrine and escargots. Very friendly and attentive service.

Daniel our server was great. He was very knowledgeable of the food, and drinks. The mussels were unbelievable. And the octopus was the most tender I've had.
