Probably, one of the best places in PE. Line fish was amazing. We went there 3 days in a row. Service and atmospere were great. Only one watchout. The starters are small.

This is a seriously good restaurant. Classic French cuisine with fine local produce , incorporating some modern innovations and not unreasonably priced. Squid for starters but paired with lardons , which was so much better than it sounds. Steak that melted. Excellent service.
