A real treat: the "marbré de foie gras et daurade (sea bream)" is exceptional - innovative, cooked to perfection and delicious. And the team is superb: informative, professional and friendly. We absolutely recommend.

In the center of the beautiful harbour where you sit outside and watch the sun go down and where you will be served with wonderful food. This is the place. Really nice service and outstanding food. Book a table.. It is a busy place.

Great location on the side of the quai but can be windy so we have often elected to eat inside. Food excellent particularly seafood. A wonderful place for lunch and dinner. Booking advisable in high season.
