This certainly lived up to previous poor Tripadvisor reviews. The location is great. The food and service are terrible. No omelettes avaianle - they had run out of eggs. Salads were disgusting. Quiche was poor. Won't be back

If I'd bothered to check on here I would have gone elsewhere...but just like you, I was passing and thirsty. It looks really nice and it's just by the port so you can watch the passing show. You take a seat and some waiters who...More
