Over cooked pasta, very greesy

Not sure if my pasta dish was a olive oil pesto pasta or pasta with pesto. Fresh pesto, over cooked pasta swimming in olive oil. A shame as the lady was very nice. A never again for us...

Took ages on deciding where to go for final night. Restaurant looked welcoming, which enticed us in, but staff were mediocre in their welcome, and somewhat impatient with our attempts to use french (equally impatient if switched to English!). Apart form the aforementioned chips, the food was not pleasant. Sirloin steak thin and tough. Bread hard and unpleasant. Had to... More

The waiter made us feel very welcome and tried hard to help us English understand the vast menu. Lots of choice and prices for starters/mains are reasonable...but puddings are very expensive. The food arrived fairly quickly and although not a huge plateful, was very tasty. The restaurant is one side off the main harbour-side, but well worth a visit.

Great range to chose from, lovely atmosphere and service was not over rushed and we had plenty of time to eat and chat. Reasonable price for the quality

There was no place for 6+1 child at the floor, so the waiter propose to go upstairs at the "Terrasse". I was imagining a real terrasse with a view. Instead of that the so-called terrasse was a big room with a side removed roofing with all the inconveniences and no advantage: smoking room because it was "unroofed", view on the... More

I have eaten at this restaurant when on business in the area on many occassions during the past 8 years. It is consistently good. Located 1 street back from the harbour front in a narrow alley. The starters are very large and superb fresh salads. The pizzas are large, fresh and tasty, cooked to oder by a proper pizza chef.... More
