Great find

Stopped in the town on the way to Banyuls. Lack of parking in the centre drew us to almost outside the resteraunt. Welcomed in to an excellent lunch. Three courses for 15 euros! Fish of the day was either lemon sole or sea bass. Fresh and perfectly cooked. We always enjoy serendipity in our choice... read more

Ate here one lunchtime after a walk up to and back from the semaphore. To be honest it was OK, what we have was nothing outstanding - a seafood plate with a glass of wine for €10.50 was seemed reasonable value but the quality wasn't what we were hoping for. Still, it was full and obviously a popular place for... More

Prices looked good but the food was poor quality and wasn't cooked properly. Meat dish of the day was mignons of porc which arrived rare and bloody. Fish courses were ok but nothing special. Much better places available locally

Went there for dinner with a group of six persons, some of them locals who selected this place. Good and friendly service and clearly above average seafood standard. I personally found the squid with small pieces of chorizo a surprisingly attractive new experience. On the other side of the harbor and the main promenade but only a few minutes walk.... More

We both had seabass (Bar) grilled as our main course and it was some of the best we had ever eaten. The... More

I nipped in here after visiting the Charles Rennie Mackintosh centre. The centre was closed but a nice lunch here made up for it. 20 euro for three courses with wine and coffee. i started with the assiette de matelot, which was two oysters, two big whelks, a clam and some prawns, served with mayo and red wine vinegar. then...

My wife and I came here on a Friday night, 16th April 2010. We had even booked as we had been warned it was a good place to go. What a disappointment, we were the only couple there from start to finish, we left at 9 so it may have had an influx later. Compared to the others we walked... More

On the opposite side of the harbour to all the other restaurants, but still not to be missed ! Attentive service in the old fashioned way, combined with up to date presentation of well prepared food. A total Joy
