What a great surprise : wandering around the old town looking for a non-touristically diner, this restaurant with a open fire for grill and real French atmosphere, was a catch! The last table, perfect mixed small appetizers, good selected wine and only locals, a great place to have diner. One authentic experience. Recommended!

We discovered this restaurant, just across the street, up the steps and to the left of the drop off from the little blue train. This is a great local restaurant with friendly staff and good food. We had the special of the day that was Gnocchi with Salmon. It was a bit salty for my liking, but the gnocchi was... More

This is a nice little restaurant not far from the old port (but far enough that you don't pay ridiculous prices for bad food!). The tapas starters were good (especially the cheesey croquettes) but the meat was brilliant. I had the bavette steak and it was delicious! No sauce needed, it was so flavoursome. My colleague had the duck which... More

They are accomodating for larger groups and speak good English. Food - is too good! They have a real fire grill so the grilled stuff is a must try. I personally loved the duck.... More

We came at the busiest lunch hour. There was one table left, right next to the grill station which was entertaing in itself. The wait was long but fortunately the food was worth it. We had the plat du jpur, saumon roti and luscious gnocchi. If you like fun and bustling you'll enjoy yourself

The restaurant has a grilling place with wood and meat is cooked in front of you. The concept is nice and the quality of the meat is quite good. It does have however some flaws. One of them is that the meat accompaniment on the main dish doesn't line up: greasy fries and tasteless vegetables doesn't mix very well with... More

Quite good! Had a great dinner! Though the waiting time was a bit too long (about 1 hr). According to the waiter, they didn't expect so many people to come that night.
