A lovely spot to idle away the evening, listen to some live jazz, sample some seafood delights, view the sun go down over the delightful beach of St Palais. We've always enjoyed eating here, a cocktail perhaps early evening, or after sunset for a digestif or two en route back to Art's Hotel. Good service and good choices.

I am surprised by the mixed reviews of this place. Superb location and a great lunch for our family of five - children aged 13, 9 and 3. Great view overlooking the beach and out to sea. Food was fab - OK it is only moules frites and Pizza and a children's menu, but I thought it was a lovely... More

This really is the best restaurant in the best location in St Palais - you can't beat it for an evening meal as the sun sets over the bay. Also, in season, some amazing live music acts.

We ate out here twice on a recent holiday and can recommend it. Food was excellent and of a very high standard. Its a very popular restaurant and at busy times will require you to book. But if you're in the area make a point of going you'll enjoy it.

We went there for dinner and chose moules frites .. Tasteless moules and the chips were like warm cardboard. The food here is usually good and it isn't a cheap restaurant ....could do better.

We love this restaurant and have eaten here many times in the summer months. The view is beautiful and we enjoy sitting on the terrace watching the world go by and families enjoying themselves on the beach. The food is good quality and we normally choose 'le plat du jour' which is normally local fish followed by a dessert. The... More

Not sure I was in the same restaurant as some of the reviewers as there were only two male waiters and the two male owners. View is fantastic and if you sit inside you still get the view and not the smokers smoke. The food was not the usual moules et frites and we were able to choose between menus.... More
