Excellent situation, disappointing food

We chose this restaurant for it's position overlooking the little beach and in full evening sun. However, the food was disappointing. I ordered mussels as a starter and more than half were empty and the rest were tiny. I can't remember what the main course was, as I had the set menu at 23 euros... read more

We visited L'Amphitryon for lunch and based that decision on the fact that it was pretty full and away from the main restaurant area. The €23 menu was great value. After the visit I checked the reviews and was surprised they were so mixed and the overall rating quite low. For price and location I reckon it's hard to beat.

We had lunch here recently. Great location on the beach, pleasant enough atmosphere, good service and the food was great. He had a huge pile of fresh shellfish for entre, I had the excellent seafood soup and we shared the paella: it was delicious and we would recommend it all. We will return here!!

Chose menu whose main course was fish of the day. When asked informed it was a whole lemon sole ; so fine. However when it arrived the fish was so small you could fit in the palm of your hand; hardly what one would call a normal portion. Worst of all; when complaint was made it was treated with absolute... More

Couliere, a town with an abundance of seafood to choose from and equally as many restaurants. We walked around the cove perusing the many premises and selected this restaurant for their set course lunch. Beautifully located waterside with views to the clock tower. The staff, jovial, attentative and efficient. The food servings were more than ample and a €15 three... More

Great spot to share some wine, food and views. Short stroll from the pass on the waterfront, the paella has to be the best I've ever tasted.....

The lunch menu starts at 15 euros for 3 courses. There are several choices for each course and the food is great. Who says eating out in France is expensive!

We ate at this place partly because it was right next to our hotel (Hotel Boramar, also great!) but I'm really glad we did. I ordered a Plat Du Jour which had a great appetizer and wonderful fish entree and creme brule for dessert. My friend had the moules and frites (mussels and fries) which she said were not only...

We arrived late for lunch, the place was full but two of us managed to get a table for four, in the middle of the restaurant. I had the lunch menu which was great. For starters I had the mussels, which was huge pot full of them. I was waiting to have five or ten at most, like restaurants back... More
