Very poor... Chips were disgusting. Cooked in what seemed to be dirty oil. Bread was not fresh. Yuk. Tartiflette had very little bacon in it. I do not recommend this place at all. Left after main course and had crêpes for dessert in another place not far from this dump.

A éviter! Frites pas bonnes, cuites dans de l'huile sale, pain pas frais. La tartiflette avait 2 petits morceaux de bacon. Je ne recommande pas du tout cet endroit. On est parti après le plat et on est allé manger des crêpes comme dessert en face.

My sister, her husband and I enjoyed a €19 3-course evening meal, consisting of soupe de poissons, saumon creole and crème brûlée with orange zest/brownie with crème anglaise. There were four choices for each course but we had similar tastes on this occasion. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and the service prompt. A bottle of Sauvignon was €21 and an espresso €2 so it all came in at less than €30 each. It was a wet Friday but we were cosy inside and still with the lovely view of Le Vieux Bassin. We have a second home half an hour away so try out various eating places to recommend to guests. I have already written a positive review on our website by way of recommendation. We will be back!

Visited this restaurant on Friday with husband and three kids. Waitress first of all ignored us then finally when she could not ignore us any longer seated us. We had not eaten here before so enquired about availability of set menus. The waitress proceeded to roll her eyes, sigh loudly and make faces at our questions. When we asked if our 13 year old son could have kids menu as he was not very hungry and nothing on main menu would suit him the waitress sighed, made some more faces and did some more eye rolling. I actually said to her if it's too much trouble for you to answer us without making faces we can just leave. She made some more faces at this. We should have left but 2 younger kids were hungry. When the waitress brought us our drink it turned out our table was on a slope so all the drinks were sliding off the table. The waitress's solution was for us to hold the drinks in our hands. When we asked to move to another table and she pretty much snarled at us and made some more faces, more sighing and more eye rolling. It was clear the staff were talking about us and making comments about us. I can't think where I have come across such a rude and obnoxious server before. The food was not even particularly nice, but the service was just appalling. The waitress was like some kind of rude moody teenager with a severe attitude problem. We would not recommend this place to anyone.

Recently visited this restaurant for lunch, the waitress was very friendly and spoke very good English (not that she should have to) the food, wine and view across the harbour were great, I would definitely visit this restaurant again.

We stopped here just for coffee, and enjoyed a watching the boats and people from our seaside table. The service was quick and there were no objections when we did not order food.
