Yes, we ate eel. It is the area's specialty, and while quite pricy, had to be eaten at least once. And where better than at the Citadelle, with its view over the estuary? The lamprey had been cooked in a broth, and the bones had been removed, making eating it very easy (as long as you didn't think about what... More

Went for a meal and took 20mins just to be noticed. After placing the order (in French) nothing happened. During our wait we witnessed 4 serving staff bringing out food, not knowing who ordered it and taking it back in. Then wandering around with food asking patrons if they ordered it. Mind you certain patrons (maybe regulars) had full attention... More

This restaurant is one that I have used in the past but we went a la carte this weekend. Superb! The food was perfect and perfectly presented and of high quality. The wine list is superb also and overall the meal was faultless. We dined inside due to hot sun but the terrace is where we would ordinarily prefer. The... More

Overall a lazy effort, dare I say cynical - we had the €28 lunch menu - there is another for €18, which didn't sound very appetising but which most customers chose - but it was poor value and unexciting food. It's so boring having the same sauces and side vegetables appearing on both entrees and main dish when it's a... More

We had very poor service- we don't speak much French, but a waitress stared at us as we tried our best to indicate and say we wanted a carafe of water for the table, unwilling to help out. The food took quite a long time to come and the meals were not a good value at all. The food was... More

The view is great from the restaurant, but that's it, and expect to empty your pockets to see it! I agree with all the other reviewers, stay away from this restaurant and enjoy the view from a bench - and it's for free!
