“Nice place shame about the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

The staff were welcoming on our arrival,we were shown to our table straight away, we asked for an aperitif outside on the veranda first, the drinks were served, after that nobody came near us for over an hour. We returned to our table ourselves, eventually our waiter took our order, he then proceeded to come back twice more to check if he had got it right, which gave us cause to be concerned about what we might get! Eventually after an hour our starters arrived, when our main courses arrived, surprise, surprise two of them were wrong. The meals were good but nothing special. We all felt the meal was expensive for what you got. especially as the service was so poor.

“what a shame!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

We have been coming to this hotel for years and always relished eating well, overlooking the ocean, swimming in the sea and the little pool at this sister hotel of the Chateau de Valmer, just across the road. Having skipped a year, we returned this year to discover that the prices at the restaurant, largely serviced by surly French students on their summer break it seems, had been hiked by at least 30% in euros terms. A piece of dorade was priced at 19 euros for 100g and the smallest fish on the menu was 500g in weight it transpired (almost 100 euros for the plat). There was not an entree on the menu for less than 24 euros. The food is good and the potential is enormous but the restaurant has shot itself in the foot with this arrogant pricing, more akin to a Michelin starred property which it is certainly not. To make things worse, the hotel has walled off the little pool so our kids could no longer play, even though we had friends staying at the hotel when we ate there. Quel dommage
