Nice view and pleasant service but the food was very average. Tuna tartare had mustard in it. Scallops were good but balsamic vinegar over everything. Filet fish had lots of bones and the dish was not seasoned and profiteroles were not very fresh

Fantastic and friendly service. Fresh ingredients. Great value. We have eaten here many times both at lunch and dinner, and the service and food has always been faultless. It is our Number 1 restaurant in Argeles.

We had a very nice dinner. A dorade with garlic potatoe to die for. Also superb maigret with banjouls gravy. The cafe gourmand was also very good. All worth the visit.

My wife and I decided to have the set menu at ~32 euros. For starters I had the tuna tartar; this was excellent. My wife had muscles which she enjoyed. We both decided to try the Creole prawns for the main. Big mistake. The potato was cold. The veg bland and overcooked. The prawns were few and small. Unsubstantial for... More

I called into this restaurant with some friends on the off chance and they had some lovely tables outside in the sun. We were fairly early for lunch but they were fast prompt and the food ranging form an entrecote steak to a sea food platter was excellent. Really good

Friendly service, excellent 3 course lunch at 22€ starters particularly good as is the panna cotta with an intense red fruit coulis. Was impressed by Argeles though out of season.

Excellent service. Really friendly, helpful staff. Lovely fresh food. 3 courses with great choices for €22. Monkfish was perfectly cooked. Creme Brulee a must. Good atmosphere. Seemed to be a lot of locals despite being in a very tourist area, always a good sign..

We were a couple that had dinner on a Thursday evening in June 2015. We had the baked cod with aioli. It was absolutely fabulous. Definitely worth visiting. Very good service.

Couldn't have asked for a nicer setting - looking out over the port, 20m from the waters edge and looking on to mountains in the distance. Food was delicious and although our three kids ate all of their 'kids menu' meals (€10) the kids options were pretty limited. Great service - friendly and efficient. Toilet was very clean and kitchen... More
