Good, honest Family Friendly restauarant

Whenever we are in the area with the grandchildren, Marie Jacks is a must stop place. Always a good welcome, even under the new ownership and the food and menu continue to offer good choice and value.

Easily the busiest restaurant on the square nearest tourist office but I wasn't expecting much given its a seaside resort. However we had an enjoyable meal with amazingly good service: tap water came quickly, waitress was always there when we needed her despite being rushed off her feet. Children's menu had much broader selection than usual including mussels. We all... More

We pre booked evening dinner at this restaurant on our afternoon walkabout based on other peoples trip advisor reviews. We are so glad we did as by 8pm it was bouncing and people waiting for tables. Arriving at 7.45 for our 7.30 booking was no problem and a table for 6 was set up for including high chair for the... More

We have been going to the Marie Jack for several years now and we feel it is still the best restaurant in the vicinity. Even though there was a change of ownership last year, the food is still great and all the ingredients very fresh; we have never had a bad meal there. We were at Portiragnes last month and... More

We have been here many years ago as a family and I took my fiancé this week, the food was very tasty and the staff were nice and friendly after it changing hands. We went out of season in June and was still the only restaurant in the square that had customers! We had the menu €27.50 which had a... More

Party of 6. We had a very good lunch. Excellent food. Waiters did not speak much English but they made us feel very welcome and tolerated our broken french in a very fun and accepting way. The menu was mainly fish related which was very appropriate in a Mediteranean setting. It was beautifully presented.

We had the basic three course meny at 19,.50 EUR. Good value, but maybe we should have topped up and chosen the more exclusive Easter menu or seafood platter instead. We had bulots (sea snails) for starter, squid rings for main, and apple tart for dessert. Good food, but nothing mind-blowing. Friendly staff, but a tad inattentive. They didn't offer... More

At the door we asked the teenage host. If they had a Menu in English / en Anglais. She started at us like we were aliens. We pointed to a menu and said, Anglais? She turned away, and ignored us. Some else came to the front, and said yes. We were seated. Our server was patient, and spoke a little... More
