The food was delicious. We had one menu a 19€ and one at 37€ , the difference was the cut of meat but, quite honestly, both menus had top quality ingredients and were equally enjoyed. The oysters and St Jaques were sublime, mains were delicious and the puddings were amazing. I concur with a previous review - the chocolate mousse... More

OMP - what a meal! We chose to eat from the 37Euro menu and it was amazing. An amuse-bouche of sardine butter on toast started us off. Foie-gras and langoustine starter was out of this world, mains of turbot and maigre (similar to bass) were perfectly cooked and delicious. Desserts of apple tart and nougatine ice cream finished off this... More

Great service, good French food and wine. Still a great chocolate mousse - which now has strong competition from the Black Forest gâteau ice-cream. Fish and meat dishes are seasonal and all have a local flavour. A selection of fixed price menus and an a la carte - so something for everyone including children.

Although very busy on a warm Sunday evening, the member of staff who served us did so calmly and efficiently - the food was delicious and I think the Tarte au Fraise desert wins the prize for the best ever. Highly recommended.

With friends from Colorado, we passed a delightful midday pause here in the well-protected terrace. Local oysters were sublime, and we followed with different main courses--wonderful smoked salmon with pasta, and grilled sea bass. Delicious chocolate mousse and ice creams rounded out our meal. Service was prompt and helpful, children and family groups were welcome and everyone seemed to be... More

An unassuming entrance leads to a fresh and classic modern restaurant - small but not crowded even when busy. Very popular with the locals - not cheap but great food. the Imaginative local dishes - tonight the kidney cassolette was melt in the mouth and the fruits de mer was fresh and had the the taste of the sea.

Super cosy little restaurant for dinner. In a side street but full nevertheless so book if you want to eat early. Best food we had in a restaurant on our trip. Interesting menu without going crazy. Top quality ingredients and some proper wine. If you eat late around 10 the families with kids have been and gone and this place... More

Food good but too many tables and not enough serving staff. We had a table in the garden and were all but forgotten. Shame as we enjoyed our meal.

Restaurant, Bistrot gourmand located at the foot of the tourist office. In fine weather, a pretty flowered patio extends your arms. Maitre Restaurateur since 2012, we are committed to renewing our menu with the seasons.
