We arrived today November 6 at 2:00 pm to a relatively empty restaurant in the slow season. We attempted to sit at a table with 4 places and were informed that as we were a party of two we must sit at a table for two. Couldn't help but notice that in the same room there were at least three parties of two sitting at tables for four. There was one party of three sitting at a table for four, but a dog made the third. Not a good start. We then asked what is the size of a starter order of mussels as we were not overly hungry. We were informed that we would be charged an additional 5 euros if we ate a starter as our only course and had to buy two starters. We then asked if we could split a main order of mussels and we were informed that we had to buy two mains. At this point my wife and I looked and into each other's eyes and communicated our mutual decision to leave. As has been noted in earlier reviews we were not in any way encouraged to stay. This is insulting.
