Lets start with the positive, nice setting in the centre of town with a roll back roof, menu for lunch at e17. Started poorly with my crepe starter cold, my steak was acceptable, while my wife's ail was somewhat overdone in a heavy sauce, desert just ok. Service was lacklustre It could have gone to average with a warm or... More

This restaurant was nice. Everything seemed to come with a sauce so make sure you're happy with your selection. Creme brûlée & chocolate mousse lovely

Prawns good themselves however we are not big fans of mayonnaise... More

I had dinner here on a cold, wet February day so probably didn't see the restaurant at its best as it's got more of a summer feel to it. However, overall I really enjoyed it. It was cold inside when I went in as the front has a canopy as the ceiling, but they have gas heaters by the tables... More

The starter 'crêpe' was cold and poorly made. Mussels are verry good. Dessert 'crème brullee' had no taste. Poor service. Waited 45 minutes for a coffee. Waiter already put it on my bill so I had to wait... Would not recommend

After looking at the menu and thinking that the place looked nice.....what a surprise was in store when we decided to eat here!! I felt I was in a fast food restaurant as everything was served so fast. Anyway, I had the sole tropical....what a disaster, the fish was of the frozen variety (unidentifiable?), as was the spinach along with... More

Excellent food , good atmosphere. 5 adults all enjoyed their food. Nothing to complain about. One adult ate 30 euro meal. Starter was lobster salad followed by duck in sauce and dessert of his choice - banana split. Good value for money. We chose various: langoustines with chips, baskets of bread were plentiful. We will certainly go back for a... More

Ate magret de canard with cider sauce. Never tried that combination before. With january temperature outside of 2°c, sitting near the flame heaters was comfortable. Service rapid and cheerfull.

In winter, the restaurant is freezing as they cover the terrace to turn it into a 'restaurant' yet there's still strong draughts of wind - I ate lunch in my coat it was that cold, not acceptable for a restaurant (should have left when we realised the arctic temperatures of the restaurant)! Food is lukewarm, salad hadn't been washed properly... More
