From the outside you can only see the bank of fresh fish on offer, you have to pass this and the kitchen to get through to the seating area, which I always feel is a good indicator of freshness and hygiene.
The interior is ALL about fish and the decor brings to mind a little restaurant by the beach. The menu is slightly unusual in that there are the classic french seafood plateau and some Italian themed starters as well as some pasta dishes. We had the plateau "Let's look each other in the eyes" which is plenty for 2 people and consists of 2 tiny tartare of tuna and salmon and 6 oysters amongst other various molluscs.
The catalana is very fresh, you can taste the individual ingredients of veg, ie the celery onion and tomatoes and the emulsion blends well with the key fish.
We also had the scamorza cheese, eggplant and mackerel starter which is a delicious combination that works very well
The desserts were totally scrumptious and worth the extra calories, in particular the dark chocolate mousse.
The cellar is not vast but as I mentioned the restaurant is not very big, but they have a few choice wines and sorbets.
I wouldn't recommend taking children with an unsophisticated palate there. there are no french fries and no side veg, most of the dishes are elaborated with a sauce so for those amongst you who prefer plain food you may have a very limited choice.
The staff are extremely friendly and take time with the clients to explain about the restaurant and it's dishes, and the origin of the food (and the very yummy bread)
All in all an excellent place to eat and I particularly like it for lunch time!
