Haven't been here for a couple of years, they have changed the chef (I think)? We had a lovely meal, I had the best steak ever in France! Lovely to watch the setting sun as we ate our meal!

Great restaurant, perfect view over the sea with the most wonderful sunset. Booking for 16. Kids meal arrived to their horror, snails!! I had the duck breast, a little undercooked but when asked they cooked it more without issue. Great choux pastry for dessert.

The view over the ocean is wonderful. Unfortuately the food follows a bit behind. I suspect that the pricing reflects this restaurant's location rather than the food which is perfectly adequate but not brilliant. The service is slow. I would eat there again but I wouldn't that excited at the prospect.
