Great small restaurant. Book to ensure you get a table. Chicken with prawns is fab and house salad is the best in town.

We ate here several time during August and it was by far the best quality restaurant that we found in Portiragnes Plage. Excellent quality from the pizzas to the more traditional French dishes. The service was efficient and once you get to know the owner he is friendly and outgoing. Will certainly visit again.

We were lucky to get a table without having booked. The setting is nice and the service good. We had 3 different starters which were good. Our main was not bad either although it wasn't really our taste. The deserts were really not great (like supermarket ones) except for the dessert du jour. The food was good but really not... More

This restaurant is nicely fitted out, smart and looks inviting. Reservations are recommended. Food was excellent but the rather impersonal one man service leads to great frustrations that spoil a good night out. Good wine selection but you need patience to dine here. We gave up on the French Coffees that we ordered with the desserts and just elected to... More

Have eaten here a number of times and at various times of the year.The food is top quality at any time.Sometimes the service can be a little bit slow but well worth waiting for.Try the Poulet avec Gambas(chicken with prawns) Fantastic!. The Monkfish is just as good.Makes for a difficult choice.

Honestly, after all the mediocre bland restaurants in the south this was a breath of fresh air. It was full of French so that was a good sign plus only room for a handful of tables. The service was slow but when the food arrived wow!! I had monkfish and the other half had lamb with homemade chips. The pudding... More

A very busy chef come waiter come owner works very hard to make this restaurant a very pleasant experience. Very cosy and not as touristy as other restaurants in the area. This restaurant has a real French atmosphere and excellent food to match. I have visited three times already this year and this is my favourite in Portiragne Plage. Book... More

Ths restaurant is lovely, it is small and cozy and has a nice atmosphere. It is hard to get in so i would reccommend booking a table in advance. The food was to a high standard, we had a massive tastey salad for a starter and steak with proper chunky chips for main course. The presentation was excellent. On the... More
