We went for lunch and some friends were just ordering when we arrived. We decided to share a couple of starters; one was different salads, all of which were delicious, and one was a courgette flan which was one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten! Our friends had ordered various fish from the catch of the day and had... More

We loved the location of this restaurant, remote enough to feel you are miles away from it all but still easy to reach with a private or a taxi. We arrived early, around 11 am and we had the place for ourselves. We were offered mint tea and enjoyed the calm and relaxing environement. When the owner came back from... More

We had a great lunch here and a very nice walk on the beach. We were tipped by Dominique of Riad Baoussala. She was so kind to drive us there. Food was good and the relaxed and remote atmosphere is very pleasant.

Patricia, the charming French owner, welcomes you and enthusiastically describes the imaginative ways in which you can choose to have today's catch of... More
