Don't go there for special occasions, the place is under staffed and the service is awful. Waiters are unfriendly and can make you wait 25 mins before you get your food

I went there with my wife for Valentine's week end and after ordering food, we had to wait 20 minutes to be served. When the waiters finally decided to serve us, they had forgotten to pass my order in the kitchen. As a results my wife and never managed to eat together. When I called the waiters to complain, he...

My experience here is limited to weekday lunchtimes, when a broad range is on offer- from an 18€ three course lunch to a single dish (for two) at 125€. Impeccable service and nice table settings-ask for a window seat when booking (essential). Thought of as a fish restaurant- at which it is very good- but offering other things too. The... More

We took the plat de mer brezus each, i.e. 12 oysters 12 big snails, 12 small emails, lemon and a bottle of Bouchard aligote. Took half an hour to work on it all, tasty, clean and attentive service.

We bought and ate oysters just across the street at the tents first, and it was cold and windy so we went in to this place as it looked warm and welcoming (with a great view of the sea.) Service was excellent, people were very convivial and friendly. We had a wonderful, very relaxing and DELICIOUS seafood lunch! A wonderful... More

Last table in restaurant full of Sunday family lunchers. Good view over grey , windy sea! Nice menu at 18,50 € - interesting, tasty and good quality ingredients. Nice decor, helpful staff. I recommend this restaurant and will definitely return.

This was a very good experience. Friendly and efficient staff and on the whole very delicious food. Only flaw: One of us ordered a plate including six ordinary oysters and six plates but only twelve ordinary arrived. One of them was very muddy and placed back on the plate but although two different members of staff clearly noticed it it... More

We had a table with a great view of the beach and enjoyed a fabulous meal. We were given two amuse bouche which was a lovely touch. We were a party of 6 and all went for various menus, all of which were excellent. This is certainly not a tourist trap, as others have suggested, but is a very good... More

Always visit here whenever we're in France. Great value set menu for €18.50 with plenty of choice. All the dishes were very good apart from the mackerel starter which wasn't as described on the menu and tasted like it was close to going off. Service swift, brisk and typically French.

We went in a sunny afternoon and sat at table with beautiful view. The restaurant is quite busy. The menu has wide range of variety. But we are from Hong Kong and we focused on the seafood. Four of us ordered 4 platters. The oysters are very fresh. I am not a fan of oyster esp those in HK. But... More
