There's no way: you're in front of the Ocean, you may want some fish, you want it not to be overcooked and too spicy: you'll pay it a lot. We had a buillabaisse, a seafoodplate, a glass of pastis, a bottle of good french wine, a tasty dessert and we spent 34 € per persone. It's a lot, especially in... More
