Very nice place for a coffee, pastry, or a sandwich or salad. Very convenient location, right by the beach, and a nice view. Staff was extremely friendly. Place was very clean. Prices are cheap compared to other nearby places.

Great beachside location, views of the surf, sand and lighthouse. Menu was rather limited. We had a shrimp wrap and a vegetarian wrap. Both were ok. Would have liked more selections on the menu. Service was ok.

Our experience was during lunch time. Good and fast service, size is perfect and they had blankets, board games and book for kids. Bread is cold (you need ask to warm) beside that, a great option at USD 20 / person.

I happened upon Cafeteria Poisson with a friend during a long day of waiting on the beach for our overnight bus. It was the best discovery!!! The partially enclosed patio was the perfect temperature, and the beautiful view of the ocean was relaxing and lovely....More
