High ranking is fully deserved

Every bit as good as the reviews had led us to expect. The service was superb, with a lovely waitress very gently guiding us in the direction of a more suitable wine and bearing with my creaking French. All of the food was excellent but the sea bass was just perfect!

Nicely apportioned airy restaurant away from the centre of town and the beach so it needs to deliver on service and food. The starters were excellent in particular ravioli with Serrano ham. Good main courses but lacking a little in imagination. Deserts were back to excellent with a fantastic creme caramel. Worth going to in a town where good food... More

What a lovely courtyard! Excellent cocktails. Good menu and the food was high quality. Set menu was very good value. Staff were good. Only problem was service was a bit slow, but we did come at peak time (8.30pm). Definitely worth going to, and very English friendly.

Food and service both very good in this restaurant set off the seafront. We had a great ravioli and salade de fruit de mer followed by squid. Good choice of wine and 3 course plus wine for just over 70 euros can't be bad. The only thing I would say is that the waiter smelt like he needed a bath.

5 adults enjoyed our visit, but the kids menu was very limited but our 3 kids persevered! The fixed price menu was excellent value at €19 or €26, beautiful crab soup, fantastic fillet of sea bass and wonderful creme brûlée. There was also a steak option and plenty of choices within both menus. Lovely inside, good staff and a great... More

The restaurant was fully booked but later in the evening we were happy to get a table (as we didn't want to miss this place after all the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor). We were not disappointed! Service very friendly, food very good!
