Decent food, decent service

We ate lunch here outside along the quay. We got a table with no trouble but it took us a while to decide what to order, which didn't earn us any brownie points with the waitress. The moules frites were delicious, well-priced, and there were a lot of them (my husband and son each ordered a... read more

Our party of 6 was a walk-in without reservation. The restaurant was 65% full at 20:00 (it should have been a warning sign as most of the others were full or almost full). Decor is a bit tired, over lit and fussy. The menu is unimaginative but covers the staple fish of the season and beef, lamb and chicken dishes.... More

This was a super restaurant overlooking the port. The owner and staff were really friendly and helpful. When the weather is bad you have to reserve. Excellent (choice of) food and of course the seafood is fresh from the boats. We went back several times and were never disappointed.

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
