Clearly a popular place with the locals - always a good sign. Good food at the right price and speedily served.

Service a little iffy but we went here twice and food was really nice and with the set 3 course menu under €15 it is ridiculously cheap especially when the wine is also so reasonable six of us went last night and the bill was € 127. Definitely worth going.

The menu sounded like good value for money. It's in a great setting, right by the little harbour and there's a big car park next door. The food was average and the service well below average. We chose this restaurant as it offered a variety of food to suit everyone.

We visited here on our first night in Meze, a busy Saturday, and felt that the service was good and the food good value and tasty. Pizzas were especially nice. Unfortunately on our return on the Friday before we left, we experienced ridiculously long waits for our drinks and food. Yes they were busy, but the waiters also did a... More

This is rapidly becoming one of our favourite restaurants that has an increasing popularity with locals and tourists alike. Enjoy food and wine in a cosy setting on the port. A warm welcome from all the staff enhances the 'feel-good-factor'. The 3-course 'formule' menu, available lunchtime and evenings, is great value at 14.50€. Eric, the boss, caters for your every...

We spent a lovely windy evening in this restaurant. We had a draft beer 500 ml euro 6,90, 2 bottles of beautiful pitcher wine 500 ml euro 5'90 each and mouille and frites around 10 euros each. How nice not to be ripped off and the modules were great thank you ! The only "busy" restaurant on this evening.

We enjoyed the 14€90 3 course lunch menu, the food was copious, well presented & tasty. The only minus point was the quality of the white wine by the carafe, we wished we'd chosen a bottle.

On a Sunday evening I have to say we were a bit reticent to stop here, but were forced to do so as it was the only restaurant in the Port area that served something other than fish or shell fish as neither of our companions eat fish. An exceptional entreee "pomme de terre a la Peruvian" set the standard... More

As good as it gets to be honest! A family-run restaurant with relatively new owners and chef. Superb! We had the 14 Euro set choice - enjoyed the chicken especially - which had followed on from a delicious fish soup. Excellent service and really positive, friendly maître d'. really recommend it!
