We had a fabulous meal in this restaurant at a very reasonable cost in a very warm and welcoming atmosphere with top service. Could not fault any part of the experience and would highly recommend.

Found this idyllic bistro while escaping a sudden down pour. Sopping wet I was still greeted with a warm welcome. My surprise was compounded by delight at the quality of the meal. Tucked away in this sleepy little seaside town, the bistro offers a cozy...More
