Have been twice in the last 10 days, first for lunch and then for dinner. My wife had fish on both visits from the menu du jour and enjoyed both meals. I had couscous royale for lunch and fried chicken for dinner. We had desserts on both occasions which were very nice. The service was friendly, courteous and relaxed. We... More

The waiter forgot our order and came back after 15 minutes to ask us what we had ordered. We enquired whether the restaurant had wi-fi access. The waiter said he would make enquiries about the password and never came back. After an hour it became apparent that there was no wi-fi in the restaurant. One would have thought that we... More

Had Moules and goats cheese and bread for lunch. The restaurant was full of locals and we had a great meal. Not a lot of English spoken but between us we communicated well enough.

I asked the Waiter is the Calamari frozen? No was the reply, well if not they were very overcooked, Michelin tyres would have been proud. On seeing the left dinner the waiter replied "Well calanari sometimes comes up like that"

Great value, no fuss, very typically French and packed with French diners. My partner and I went for the 3 course set menus at €24 and €34 simply because I was on a mission to have a great Soupe de Poisson, otherwise you could order 2 courses for €12.. Either way it's all excellent value. The service is very relaxed... More

This restaurant is at the end of the touristy promenade covered with shops along the port and the beach, but I read good reviews on that place and we decided to try it. The daily menu is available for 12E and 14E which is very affordable, this menu could be ordered until 7PM. Our son had the traditional steak hache... More
