If you enjoy seafood then you'll enjoy this restaurant. As well as the à la carte menu, there are fixed price menus with a very good selection of options for each course. My husband and I went for the 35€ menu, and were delighted. There is a good choice of wines too. I would thoroughly recommend visiting this restaurant, and... More

The food was like home cooked meal, nice, but not very special. I had the chicken and apple dessert. The place was comfortable and the service was good.

Having had a couple of disappointing experiences on previous evenings we, my son and I, couldn't believe our luck in finding this gem.

The food was excellent with, as... More

Our second visit to this restaurant and it was very busy. The waitresses worked very hard but everything was lovely - quite expensive but good food and most,people were French. More upmarket than a lot of the restaurants round the port

We ate here two nights in a row and were very pleased with their wonderful food and service. They speak excellent English and were very attentive without being intrusive.
