As we had just got engaged moments before arriving here we were already on cloud 9 and no matter where we would have dined that night it still would have been great however Jean des Sables just made it all the more special. Location right on the beach with the sunset going down with a bottle of Champagne and beautiful... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants and the food is superb. Always something surprising using local products. To be honest, we would go for the bread alone, however every dish is a delight. Presentation, ambiance, location and service on top of everything else make you wish that your meal would never end.

The outside of the building looks ugly and most unlike a restaurant, but press on to the entrance, because it's more than worth while. The atmosphere and ambience is smart white tablecloth style, but nonetheless very relaxed and... More

We chose the FISH & CHIQ menu for ± 60euro. And we received bread with butter, enterance, then the four course menu, then a basket with some muffins, madeleine and... More

This was our third visit to Jean des Sables and it was another wonderful experience - beautifully presented food, stunning flavours and a lovely ambiance. The fantastic sunset completed the perfect evening. Can't wait for our fourth time!

Fish & chic is fantastic value. The st. Pierre was delicious as was the crab and white asparagus starter. Excellent service, experience just marred by pooch sitting on a chair at the next table!

It has a Michelin rated chef, which means very fancy dishes and not much volume. Our family had a big debate about each course because somebody loved it and somebody hated it. The location is perfect, the service impeccable as you would expect.
