Good restaurant overlooking the harbour in La Cotiniere, not in St Pierre as Trip advisor seems to think. St Pierre is 5km inland! Moules and crevettes recommended, we liked it enough to visit twice whilst staying nearby

Excellent attentive service, lovely harbour view and excellent fresh sea food. This resto is always a safe bet and seems to be popular as always busy.

Good choice of dishes from the 23.50 euro menu. The seafood platter starter was good value as was the fish kebab. The final touch a chocolate ,banana and cream dessert.

Restaurant with great views of the harbour....not a great place. We found it to be overpriced with slow service despite it not being that full. Recommend to keep looking in smaller locations around for a good experience.
