The service was friendly, the fish dishes were incredibility good and fresh. You can rely on the advice of the waiters or the boss. However, I would not recommend it if you are on budget.More

This was recommended by our hotel (Les Voyageurs) as their original choice, L' Agua, was closed. Having checked Tripadvisor I almost cancelled, but in fact we had a nice meal with excellent, friendly service. The fish was fresh and well cooked and the desserts were...More
