Good choice for slightly up-scale dining located on the waterfront over-looking the canal. Outside patio dining avaialble, weather permitting. Our server, who was apparently maitre d' as well, seemed somewhat aloof and harried initially, but our party of one French and two American couples (speaking every combination imaginable of French, English and Dutch), soon had him thawed out and laughing...

A beautiful location and perfect views. But the food and service were well below par. The waitresses was surley uninterested and rude. The place was full of flies, the cutlery was dished out by the wrong end. We have eaten in other restaurants in the port and enjoyed. Never will we return here. If only we had checked here first...

I know the French can come across as a bit surly at times but the service we experienced here was extremely dire. Our family group, some of whom spoke fluent French were visiting the area on a busy weekend. We wanted fresh seafood, all the restaurants that line this picturesque harbour were busy but this one had a free table... More

Have visited this restaurant previously in 2010 and 2011 so eagerly anticipated return this year. Sorely disappointed. We were seated upstairs next to kitchen with waitress serving who couldn't have been more rude, unfriendly or slovenly if she'd tried. She snapped at my daughter for doing nothing more than lean the wrong way when picking up her plate. She repeatidly... More

Le service dans ce restaurant est nul. Nous avons quitté le restaurant ayant attendu 30 minutes sans voir une carte ou une proposition de boisson. We quitted this restaurant after 30 minutes waiting without a single waiter offering a menu or a drinks menu. We were refused an inside table yet numerous locals followed and were given the tables.

Yet again, a potentially pleasant experience spoilt by a waitress. The restaurant has a good view of the harbour and we arrived and ordered the 3 course lunch menu. The food was good, no complaints and reasonable value, but oh the service! The pretty petite lady who seated us was very pleasant, the male waiter, made an attempt at humour,... More

There is nothing good to say about this establishment. we had to ask twice for water, three times for wine, change our wine to the correct order, and side dishes had to be asked for repeatedly. But worst of all the waiter and waitress were simply incompetent and rude. There are many better restaurants in this small location. Food was... More

This was a return visit. Our first visit was a good one so we returned 2 years later. What a mistake. Rude and surly waitress. We do not speak French, but we at least tried...she was just rude. Then waited 15 minutes for a menu...food was so-so nothing special... Then another 15 minutes for dessert... We will never return!!! Love... More

We have visited this restaurant on each of our 5 stays in the area and have enjoyed all our meals. The service is friendly and the food and drink are reasonable value. This restaurant overlooks the harbour area and is a relaxing place to watch the world go by.
