The mussels dish had very small mussels and the sauce wasn't very tasty. The grilled fish was alright. Service was good. Good location. Overall, for the price, it was average.

Excellent food, reasonably priced and friendly, efficient staff. The location is just off the harbour and booking is advised after 19:00 Could not be better, I suppose.

Four of us had a three course meal. Situated with a great view of the old port and the towers. The oysters for starters were lovely as were the salad starter and the other seafood ones. Three of us had the fish-a superbly cooked white fish with lovely accompaniments. The creme brulee was out of this world. House wine was... More

Next to the food, people watching is the true summer experience here - thus an outside table is a must. A family run restaurant offering friendly and efficient service. Their fare is the typical French summer menu - a few fish dishes, a few meat dishes, some salads. But tasty and enjoyable.

this is a little gem of a restaurant, quaint décor inside or you can eat out weather permitting. the menu was really excellent with slightly different options as well as traditional dishes with a twist. excellent service, although in French they will translate for you if you need help with the menu. would recommend quite small so book a table.

This is a small restaurant on Place de la Chaine. We both had mussels in white wine and garlic. Very tasty and great value. I had oysters to start and they were also very good. The place was busy, turning people away which I think is a good sign. Service was excellent. Recommend a visit but book if you are... More

A very welcoming, cosy restaurant on a cold, blustery evening. Staff friendly and helpful. The menu should have something for everyone with seafood naturally predominating. Our dishes were excellent, beautifully prepared and presented. Very good value for money, the restaurant can be highly recommended.
