The food in this place is ok, had duck and it was a bit overcooked. The fore grais was coold, like mine room temprature. I must say i think it's too expensive considering what you get. ok service, should be better for the price

We have a dog and this restaurant was dog friendly too. The food was delicious and we had a great view of the fireworks over the port whist dining. There is wonderful food for all budgets, including, dish of the day, 3 course set menu & sharing dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a lovely dinner at L'Hippocampe. Fixed price menu and dish of the day choices were excellent. Fish was fresh and service was quick. Our kids ate well and enjoyed the setting.

We had the fixed lunch menu at €19.50 for 3 courses. Good choice and we could not fault the quality and presentation: fois gras, fillet of red mullet, ice creams & peach tart. Wine very reasonable, service attentive without being intrusive.

This is a great restaurant, with great food (3 course set meal for €29.50) and friendly staff, all the time just a couple of meters from the marina sea. Not the cheapest, but great quality and very well cooked and presented.

The food, wine and service was excellent and we felt very good value if you go for the set meal ( 29 Euros for three courses). Not all the staff speak English and the menu is in french.

Didn't check on this before we went so really pleased to see it is #17 it deserves it. Excellent meal and good value. Very pleasant waitress gave us good service with a smile. Very good chips( perhaps triple cooked?) fish cooked perfectly, excellent mussels as a starter. Would recommend.

We, having ordered in advance, a bit early for the tourist season, aprox. 60 people had the restaurant to ourselves this evening. The personnel served us quick and well. We lacked nothing. As a starter we had delicious gratinated scallops, main course was Charolais Rumpsteak with foie gras sauce. Also very good and tasty. As dessert we had a "dessert... More
