We went to La Taverne approximately 3 weeks ago and have to say the food was excellent. If you're ever in Lion-Sur-Mer for whatever reason then treat yourself to a lovely evening by giving it a try.

Lovely typical French restaurant, not pretentious. Family run and friendly. Very good English from the waiter, he was very helpful. The menu was good and bilingual. Nice wines to choose from. Overall good value for money in the main city centre
