To start, this place was very busy. We were fortunate to get a table under the awning as it was raining. The waitress was a little brusque but she was also very busy. We had mussels, frites, tomato salad and 1/2 carafe of rose. Prices...More

The smell of their grilled Sardines is too much to resist but unfortunately our meal there was a massive disappointment. The food took forever to come, the sardines were undercooked and quite unpleasant and the waitress quite the rudest waitress we have ever met. We...More

They pointed us a very, very specific place to wait for them to fix a table. The food is good, they brought it very fast. The soup was almost what we call "soup" in our country, the sardines, which for us is not the best...More

We ate here on a sunny day in July, with shoppers and workers happily buzzing around. Lovely food. The sardines are great as is the piperade. Good and speedy service. All fresh and great atmosphere.

This restaurant has not much of an interior. The action is all on the pavement in the evening. It is very busy, very lively and good fun on a warm evening. Don't expect high gastronomy but you will get extremely fresh shellfish and fish plus...More

We stopped for a quick lunch. Service was slow, since the place was packed, but the food was terrific! We shared a platter of prosciutto, tomato salad, oysters, fish soup, and a half pitcher of Rose. No frills, but plentiful, tasty, and inexpensive.

This little cafe is aimed at the market traders but if they are not busy are happy for other customers. I loved the tables and chairs and the ambiance but it is clear from other reviews that others were expecting restaurant level service. The kitchen...More
