Great mussels and lovely wine for me and a great cod dish and beer for my OH. Waiter was helpful as oh didn't understand the French for cod so meant he got to order a great feed.

It was cold and rainy, we wanted a light meal, and the place our hotel recommended was, unfortunately, closed. Walking along the harbor, we looked at menus, and La Grand' Rive seemed the best bet. The risotto was tasty, but the Asian stir-fried vegetables were...More
