Nice atmosphere, food average

We walked past and the restaurant looked lovely and buzzing - we chose it over all the other restaurants. Unfortunately the food was only average. We did have a lovely night though, the atmosphere was great and the service was good.

We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday lunchtime in the holiday season and were seated comfortably. Our food (the paella, one of the specialities) was fine, in fact it was very, very good but the waiting staff were among the most miserable I've met. Not a single smile, very surly service and oh so slow to deliver the bill,... More

We went without a reservation and could choose one of the non-reserved tables. The food was very good - we chose a la carte dishes; the seafood platter and choucroute de la mer were wonderful. But we felt a bit chased by the waiters: they were always fiddling with things on the table, kept passing by and checking on us,... More

We went on a very busy night - in March, the restaurants in St Valery tend to open later in the week! Most closed Monday evening, many also closed Tuesday night. We ate upstairs so a little lonely and the ground floor dining area is quite pleasant. There's a helpful team but we just felt that when the staff came... More

Reviewed this restaurant last year and was positive about the experience we had had, this is an update based on an evening out with friends to see the New Year in. We were a group of 6 and the menu for the evening was more or less fixed (but with enough flexibility to accommodate those of us who don't eat... More

On a busy Saturday night we landed a lovely table and the staff were very attentive - which isn't always the case in France.

We ordered the plate de fuit de mer which was great food and good value. The large plates really are a lot of food !!! Nice wine list at sensible prices and restaurant full on a Monday evening

Having limited choice due to a number of restaurants being closed on a wet Monday afternoon initially seemed a good choice but sorry to report very average may be we have been lucky and eaten at many very good restaurants in France unfortunately this was not one of them

Lots of restaurants in this delightful town which is well worth a visit. Noticed this one busier than most and full of locals, always a good sign. I ordered a seafood platter and she ordered a plate of prawns. They put them all in one big platter which could be off putting to some especially as it was all so... More
