“Fish and oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A good fish restaurant with a homely, relaxing atmosphere and a friendly service. A good choice of fresh fish and seafood, wines from the neighborhood (e.g. Gascogne).

“Don't go if you are anything but French”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2011

From the outside, the restaurant looked pleasing enough - clearly focussed on seafood. We looked forward to a treat at the seaside and chose the biggest platter on offer. The highpoint of our platter were two beautiful half crabs. But repeated requests for a a cracker to crack open the crabs were ignored, and finally just waved aside with the comment that all crackers were already taken ! Trying to get the bill was near impossible - and only topped by the owner managing to complete the payment process without a single wrd uttered !
