The service was excellent, the atmosphere was quite nice but the food didn't really live up to that. The chicken was so so, the bouillabaisse was too salty, for my taste anyway. Very small menu if you don't like too much choice, can be a...More

Went here for farewell dinner on Collette tour and was really great. We enjoyed the chicken and I had the steak sandwich with fries. Had chocolate bark for desert and it was the perfect end to a great trip.
