We arrived here tired and hungry and were greeted by a friendly face. The menu had two of my favourite dishes - hot goats cheese salad (probably the best one I have had) and a magret de canard. The food was well presented and delicious.

Nice place for a good dinner, friendly waiters and tasty food, choosen from several items in the list. All of us were satisfied, need to improve the wine selection, but it is only a detail.

Definitely not a bad meal but not a truly memorable one either. Had a nice night all the same and would probably return if we wanted to eat fairly affordably and try some other menu items. Nice location on the seafront.

We were here on business and had a reason to celebrate on a Tuesday when many of the local restaurants were closed. The decor could use some work, but the food and service were very good. No complaints.
