If you like fresh seafood - then dont miss out on the platter. Lobster, crab, shrimps and other delicious seafoods served with a great dijon mayo. Tough there could have been some mor langustine and shrimps instead of small shrimps and mussels.

We saw this floating gem via Tripadvisor and knew it wouldn't disappoint. Gut feelings always win the day!

Very quick service (it was fairly quiet but I think they were on their game), wine by the glass if required, small and perfectly formed menu. A range of vast plates of assorted shell fish, we went for the 69€ sharing plate, which beat us and we can pack it away. We saw other diners eating whole roasted fish, they also looked very professionally prepared. If you want a filling but more reasonably priced option I'd go for the smaller offer next time. There will be a next time!

If you're squeamish or prefer pizza/burgers then give this one a miss. If however you want super fresh sea food in the perfect location (it's a boat for crying out loud!) then give it a try.

We felt welcome from the very first moment. And all seafood was just outstanding. The Riesling was also good and reasonable, so couldn't be any better. Will come again if in the area

We went there with my girlfriend for my birthday and we were not disappointed. Great seafood plates with delicious oysters and lobster. The restaurant is a nice little boat, which brings some authenticity to the moment. The owner and her daughter were super nice and offered to taste the local alcohol : calva at the end of the meal. It is not cheap but that is the normal price for seafood. Super nice dinner. Recommended.

Amazing mayonnaise. Lovely location. But no ice bucket for wine. Oysters substitued for tiny extra portion of grey prawns. Service unremarkable. Perfectly pleasant but not worthy of #1 rating.
