“An excellent winter eating place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Had an absolutely fabulous lunch here over the Christmas period, and without reservation, they managed to find us a table. Some of the service was a little slow, but we weren't worried, as we had plenty of time, their restuarant was full and we were a 'late entry' who they'd squeezed in, explaining that it may take some time. So we sat sharing a great bottle of wine and canapes to start. We went for one of the set menus with various little additions between courses. The fish was superb as were the other dishes. We sat outside, as the Sun was wonderfully warm, and we had our dogs with us, so we watched the world go by around the harbour! We've eaten at various other places in Argeles and been disappointed, but the food here certainly didn't do that, the ambience was good, and the service excellent. We will be returning!

“Bit pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Compared to other restaurants in the area this restaurant is a bit pricey and ostentatious. The only restaurant I know if France that does not offer a house wine and the price of their wine by the bottle is exorbitant. Sometimes they offer a menu du jour, more often than not it is just a la carte.
More suited to special occasion dining than a relaxed family experience. No English spoken and no attempt made to try.
Unusually for France, the owner does not meet and greet diners.

“Great little restaurant in the Port”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a great little restaurant in the Port. If you are staying in Argeles Plage a great morning can be had touring down to the Port on bikes, stopping off on the beach on the way and then lunching here. Great fish and shellfish as you might expect. Very relaxed chilled atmosphere and definitely a step up from the classic beachfront places.

“Great Place to eat - Any time of the day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Went here quite late on our first night and although they were very busy and we didn't have a reservation they found us a place. Superb food, wine, drinks and above all service.Extra large portions for our two teenage boys who had been out windsurfing all day.
We went back again the next night and sure enough the food and service was superb!
I think we ended up eating there 5 nights out of 7 and we enjoyed every visit.
By far the best restaurant in Argeles and right on the marina.
Helps if you can speak French as the staff don't really speak much English.
Bon Appetit!
