Our 3rd visit, another choice ticked off the menu and another top notch meal. We always eat here on our first or last night in France on the way from or to the port so sometimes the French is a tad rusty but the staff are helpful and friendly and never abrupt or snooty if you're not quite 100% grammatically...

The food was good with plenty of choice for both adults and children. Good service but a little more expensive than restaurants offering the same type of food.

There was a good selection of food, myself and my partner both ordered pizzas from the wide range available. The food arrived in good time and was well cooked and tasty with generous portions.

Nice selection of food on the menu, expensive wine! Would eat here again though. We stayed at nearby B&B Hotel, within walking distance

However they told us we could only order off a certain menu that provided no option for vegetarians. This was an extremely cheap menu that had a limited choice and the staff did not seem to realise that if the students... More
