This restaurant seems to be associated with a hotelerie and a larger restaurant inside, but we chose to sit outside, on the waterfront with nice sidewalk seating, (unfortunately, adjacent to a parking lot) but looking out over one of the fishing fleet harbors on the...More

Still trying to understand how this is in the Michelin guide. The service was atrocious, over priced for what you receive. Also didn't appreciate being eyed up and down before them deciding if they would allow us a table when there was clearly space in...More

The food was really good overall although the pasta was a bit al dente for my liking. Some really nice seafood antipasti dishes. The food may have been worthy of Michelin recognition but the service was less so. The maitre d went from being welcoming...More
