Overpriced, average quality meal but great location with view of the beach. It is a shame as with a little effort, this could be a great place. The waitress was friendly and efficient and the decor good in the brasserie part. Whilst I don't like...More

a great location by the seafront with impeccable service but I am sorry to say that the food was only average. A fish soup was very average and the sea bass (bar) I had was rather normal with even a dry piece of lemon ....More
