Very friendly with a good menu, but overpriced. Meat based dishes very generous portions, vegetables very tasty BUT the fish that I chose (at additional cost) was a VERY small portion and though well cooked I left the restaurant hungry. I would not choose to eat there again. Service on the slow side.

We had a very enjoyable meal in one of the best locations overlooking the sea. The Oysters were delicious and the fish was melt in the mouth and perfectly cooked.

Most unprofessional restaurant I have ever been to. Slow slow service. Unfriendly unprofessional staff. Waited and waited for anyone to take food order. Limited menu. Staff did not deal with customers in order of arrival. Cant believe the other statements from customers unless the ownership has recently changed. I would advise anyone to go else where to eat.

Sir, I would really appreciate you to get in contact with us by mail in order to detail your comment as we do not understand why you consider our menu limited and what you consider as being a long long wait. We might have missed something there. Hope to read you soon : lesbegonias@ostal.Fr More

Hello, We understand your point there. No excuse but one simple explanation for that "black day": we had a problem with our waitress. This resulted in a full reorganization and you seem to have suffered from that. What to tell more ? Please accept our apologies. More

Went there for a family lunch, we had a lovely time. Food was delicious, dishes were sophisticated and reasonably priced. But the main thing about this place is the service which is fantastic.

Four of us used this restaurant quite a lot over a week or so, we tried others but this was easily the best in town. We all thought the choice was good and the cooking very good. We were looked after as if we were old friends, even though we were casual diners staying somewhere else, Great staff

We visited this restaurant with some good friends and although we live quite close we had never really noticed Les Begonias. Its tucked away in a corner virtually on the promenade - and its a gem! First of all the ambiance is excellent, cosy, typically French, not to big, not to small with the tables spaced discreetly apart. The staff... More
