This is a nice place to have a romantic dinner. Even though the place gets a bit noisy as 10 pm approaches, the enchantment of the ambiance and the quality of the food remain intact. Once you go in for the first time, I assure that you will come back. For the menu is diverse and it is impossible to... More

What an unexpected pleasure. Not French but caters from pasta, seafood, steak and some unusual combinations that work. There were 6 of us and not one plate had anything left on it at the end which is very unusual. The atmosphere on the water was perfect. We sat outside as there was a large group inside which could have made... More

From the street this restaurant doesn't look like anything special, but once you walk through the doors, it's a lovely, calm environment with outdoor seating with views of the small harbour and beach. The service was good and the food was delicious.

One of the fixed price menus at Cigalon is a great deal. The food is French based, with a French chef. A little amuse-bouche of pumpkin soup, delicious in house made bread, and the mains, both meat and fish were perfect. The creme broule was a delight. Never been disappointed but go with the prix-fixe, the a la carte can... More

The atmosphere is nice, but I must say I enjoyed the place much more for the food. The lobster was excellent and the selection of wines very good.

We ate dinner here on Boxing Day and really enjoyed it! We ate at the first table just inside the balcony which ended up being the perfect table as people who were on the balcony came inside after dark. There was a problem with the electricity while we were there but this did not affect the food at all and... More

This is a good venue for a romantic meal overlooking the bay. The food is to a good standard and I particularly enjoyed the tuna served with stir fried noodles. The service is OK but we had to wave at the waiter to get attention a couple of times. One suggestion to the owners is to increase the light levels.... More

This nice bistrot is located in a house where Brigitte Bardot lived for some time, in the 60's. Great ambience for lunch, specially if you get on of the few outside tables, facing the beach and the small fishing boats. The "sound track" is simply perfect, the food is delicious. Trust me on this one.
