Bonsoir , good evening , We had dinner a week ago with friends and it was outstanding. The Soupe de Poisson, risotto de la mer and Soupe de fraise were delicious. Good service despite peak time. Excellent diner et service reussi ! Malgré une affluence record.

Great lasagne and mussels on a spot where you wouldn't expect neither the service or quality like this. Stop here on your adventure on this island.

Eight of us enjoyed a lovely meal to celebrate a birthday. The waiter (possibly owner as well) made recommendations including the daily menu du jour which featured grilled dorade and their suckling pig plate. Both of these were excellent. Local wines were lovely. Meal was quite affordable. Will return before leaving the area.

The La Gourmandise is one of the few restaurants in the area which are open all year long. The meat dishes are excellent as the restaurant is owned by a butcher with its own butcher shop in town. Portions are really huge. The locals specialities are also quite a treat. For younger children, there is not a lot of choice... More

Friendly staff, rude manager. Popular place due I suspect to the massive portions. Lobster from the tank, great big chunks of meat, starters the size of a main course. Chips not great, meat a bit dry due to portion size. The specials were in some ways the most disappointing as they were rather mass produced.

Afterwards I asked for English menu and they wouldn't have one. When we decided to leave the staff started to show very obvious gestures that we really should leave... More
