Having enjoyed the very fresh and great quality of the seafood platter last time we decided a retour would be good.
Again, freindly, quick and efficient service. We chose a dozen Nr.2 oysters - super fresh and well prepared, followed by the Cassoulet de Saint Jacques (very tasty and plenty of St Jacques) and the dry aged steak - very hard to find beef aged long enough in France and very, very delicious.
This is a family run restaurant for families, it's does not pretend to be posh but it does do what it says on the box - Excellent quality ingrediants, fresh, well prepared and served quickly by freindly staff.

Had a bit of a hard time communicating, all in French. I ordered the piccata alla Marsala and was very pleased. Husband ordered steak skewer, watch the quality of beef. If you don't want to be disappointed, order the more expensive cut. The creme brûlée was wonderful. The prices very reasonable.

An amazing experience! Family run, cosy restaurant, serving fresh seafood and "cochon de lait". Delicious. Very big portions! Definitely worth it.
