Great Bar in the heart of the action, a slide down to the toilets, late night & a video screen with the drink prices changing every 30 seconds... Great sports too !!!

Good atmosphere, pool table, table football and music. If you like the stock market beer price game you'll also find this too. We used this a a meeting point before heading out later.

Popped in here for a beer or two on our last afternoon. Reasonable prices on a par with resort, although in the evening these change every 100 seconds, bit mad!! There's a slide down to the toilets....crazy

The funny thing is that they have display menu of drinks that change price every 100 sec. So if you pay Jackie daniels 6€ in next round it could cost 8 or 6 or 5€, you can't know. But you can wait for price go down and than buy. Funny,,

Thought that this was just a bar! We went there twice last week, both times in the late afternoon. This is an average French resort bar - drinks prices are average.

Liked it was right near out hotel (royal ours blanc) and that was a good mix of nationalities... always bugs me when a bar is full of brits or dutch, nice to have a good amount of locals in there too.

This is the worst dining experience I have ever had. We booked 24 hours earlier. We arrived at 7:30pm. The dining area, which is only casual, only seats around 24 people. The waitress was hard working but under pressure. We waited 45 minutes for two simply starters then another 45 minutes for the main courses to start arriving. There were... More
