Pleasant Bistrot

This is a very enjoyable place where to stop either for a drink or a dinner. It does not require reservation. They serve both fishes (including crustacean, oysters, etc.) and meat. The waiters are nice persons, very efficient. We ate meat, after a week in which we had been always eating sea food... read more

Very casual and friendly with lots of very interesting customers. We just had drinks here but looks like a real sailor's place to eat and drink. Very casual and very cosy and I suspect this is where the locals like to go.

Great informal fish restaurant. No booking, nothing fancy, but great food, both fish and steak. Would go back.

Great food, great atmosphere and lovely staff. We ate here twice, once as a family and once in a large group. Both times the food was great. They don't take reservations so it's worth turning up at 7.30/8ish - you will find all the tables gone by 8.30 and a bit of a wait. The fish and steaks are fantastic.... More

Cote de boeuf (for 2 to share) with two sauces, to die for. Good all purpose bistro food. Other side of the inner harbour from the main mass of restaurants. Pleasant sitting on the quayside. Brisk pleasant friendly service. No reservations; service starts at 7.30; get there at 7 and enjoy an aperitif.

As a party of four adults and two children we were seated inside,which we preferred . All the staff are very friendly and helpful with offerings for the children . The adults have oysters to start and rib steak to follow. All cooked to our request.

we were very hungry the night we arrived to this island after long drive, saw everyone eating big chunk of steak. We took the table without hesitation. The steak was perfectly cooked, juicy and moist.

My husband and I had lunch at Le Bistro Marin and enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Right on the harbor, watching the boats come in and out, while dining on the freshest seafood we have ever had!
