Saturday lunch for four at this restaurant was great. From aperitifs to dessert we were given plenty of attention and the food was delicious. Moules Marinieres and Soupe de poissons starters were followed by grilled dorade or skate wing in sorrel sauce. All were perfectly seasoned and cooked. Desserts, baba au rhum, creams caramel and iles flottantes all were eaten... More

From reading the menus outside and peeking inside, the food sounded great and it was lovely and traditional. Had a roaring fire which was appreciated on a cool autumn day. Warm and friendly service, food was outstanding. I enjoyed langoustines flamed in cognac, steak with shallots, crepes flambeed in grand marnier. The rest of my group really enjoyed their meals...

The person who made the booking hinted that it was an anniversary. Our table was decorated with flowers and bunches of cereal. A lovely meal under the shady trees.

This place doesn't look up to much, a little dated and anonymous. But the food, oh the food! Everything we had, from Bouillabaisse to langoustines, bream, moules, everything, was simply delicious. The service was friendly and warm, and we were lucky to get a table - we arrived early but the place soon filled up almost exclusively with locals, which... More

We visited the restaurant with friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. Have been many times before and always had a good meal. Two of us started with the Duo de coquillages farcis au beurre d'escargot (oysters and clams) which was wonderful. One friend had the fish soup and the other had the langoustines. Both were impressed. For main course three... More

We have eaten at La Promontoire several times over the past few years and it has always been good, without exception. We visited on Sunday for a nice quiet, out of season Sunday lunch. The atmosphere and ambiance was excellent as always, the owner and her team were as welcoming, friendly and efficient as always. We opted for the 29... More

Radegonde.The restaurant has 3 menu options starting from 2 courses for 16Eu. to 41Eu. The 2 course menu is more than enough and you can have one of 6 options including Le poisson du jour and Moules/frites. The... More

It was a busy day. We arrived without a reservation (Sunday Lunch) and at 1 o'clock. No problem; Only 2 of us but we were given a table for 4 and made welcome. We chose from the €29 menu (4 courses)- not extensive but we prefer that. The sea food in garlic butter - superb, foie gras some of the... More

Pleasant inside and outside (terrasse), friendly, professional service...and its cuisine excellent! The fresh fish of the day -any day- in our plates or in our friends' was perfectly cooked. Real good food and plenty! This is a restaurant... More

A fav place for summer dinner under the tonnelle - formule plat et dessert 16 euros, justified - absolutely deliciously grilled fish and lemony sauce accompanied by spaghetti style al dente veg and spinach, not to forget the local white wine.
