Nice location, average food, high prices

The good thing about this restaurant is its location on a little square directly in the seaside, with nice sunset views. The bad thing about it is that the food, the ambiance and the service are of poor quality and the prices are relatively high. All in all, bad value for money and better places... read more

Both times, we were a group of eight people. Got a nice table inside and got seen to very quickly. The fist time we went, the food was very good - I had the sword fish which had been cooked to perfection, everyone else was very pleased with their food. We decided to go again the following week, but we... More

Nice place for diner, with a large choice. Beside the Roches Noires Beach. We went already several times and it was always good.

.....just had a very enjoyable lunch here watching the waves crash against the rocks. Great service, food ok but not outstanding, coffee excellent! I would give it a "Good" - but again I make the point that Tripadvisor only allows "Average" or "Very Good" - therefore it has to be rated as Average.

We visited this restaurant in March 2010 (twice). It is ideally situated on the beach front but not that easy to find. I was part of a group of eight adults all with different tastes in food but we all found something we liked. The food was very good, fish being a speciality but try their hamburgers or salads (great... More
