Four of us dined here - two tourists and two locals. Food was average for France. Service was slow. Ambience was good, lots of families with children - we were outside on a cool damp July evening. Four menus, with wine €151.

My husband had been to this restaurant before and of course being Icelanders we had to there. I had my first whole lobster and my husband had the seafood platter (again) and we both loved our food. Our waiter was attentive and entertaining.
