Great food for a really good price, considering the superb location. We ate lunch here and although the restaurant was packed, our food was served pretty quickly and was super delicious. We had a tuna steak and a grilled fish of the day. Both dishes were excellent and really yummy. Service was friendly and helpful. Definitely worth to stop by.

This restaurant is very well located, facing the sea, and the view is nice at lunch, with plenty of surfers, and at night ... seat at an exterior table and feel "the holidays" and Reunion spirit. The dishes are varied, I eat a burger and the meat was very good quality ... don't miss the mussels; also excellent. The service... More

The good thing about this restaurant is its location on a little square directly in the seaside, with nice sunset views. The bad thing about it is that the food, the ambiance and the service are of poor quality and the prices are relatively high. All in all, bad value for money and better places can be found in the...

We decided to go again the following week, but we... More
