Team are welcoming and very keen to assist. The food is locally sourced and the portion sizes leaves nobody short of a great meal. I particularly recommend the steaks but the remainder of the family were very happy with there seafood selection.

The decor is rather grim and old hat , however meat is always top quality. Loads of locals have lunch here , best guide, is not a tourist trap.

The seafood is absolutely fabulous! Grilled to perfection and really value for money. The host is extremely friendly and very patient in explaining the dishes on the menu because we can't read French. The restaurant gets crowded during dinner time so do make sure you have a booking or reservation before heading down.

We had a lovely evening at Lou Totem. The food was great and the atmosphere relaxed. The food was good, simple and without pretensions and very good value for money. The hosts were very pleasant and even ensured we got home safely.
