“An unexpected treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit to both the gallery and the restaurant, with fantastic views of the Mediterannean. What a great location, with wonderful a wonderful art collection in a light and airy gallery!

“Fine modern art gallery with good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

The gallery is next to the interesting old cemetery and well worth 2-3 hours of your time, depending what exhibition they are showing to supplement their worthwhile resident works (good 17th century Dutch, Flemish as well as French artists) At our visit, there were French impressionists from private collections - works hardly ever seen. Their restaurant is a perfect lunch spot.

“Excellent summer exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This gallery always punches above its weight and exhibitions during the summer are invariably interesting. Well worth a visit.

“Pleasant interlude”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Compact visiting collection of Impressionists well worth an hour or so and much easier to digest than the major national museums. The permanent exhibition is fairly small but has good local atmosphere (and some seriously weird contemporary stuff).
