Last visited this restaurant two years ago during our last visit to the Island and it is still far and away the best restaurant in the port. We ate at the restaurant twice during our five day stay and had two wonderful meals in a...More

Lovely service, good, very fresh oysters. Nice crisp cold white wine. What more could you want? More words obviously- trip advisor won't let me submit this unless I write 100 words- is that it yet?

THE place to eat seafood in La Cotiniere. You must book as it gets pretty manic. Friendly and efficient service. Fantastic oysters and mussels. And you can pre-order "boats" of seafood to take out.

The freshest seafood imaginable combines with a very clever chef to provide top-notch food at sensible prices. Frequented by mainly locals in April - the fact it was packed lunchtime and evening speaks volumes.

However if you're after fish as opposed to shellfish then this place might not be for you. My wife ordered the cuttlefish which was extremely filling but everything else was shellfish. Service was generally good, although I wasn't keen on the way one of the...More

Great place for sea food... a bit busy, but good service for great fresh food from the nearby sea. Not by the seaside but situated in a nearby street. I would recommend.
