Not the most original title for this foody edifice but no other title is appropriate ! An aperitif 'en terrace' is a great beginning with th Bay of Gasgogne at your feet. A decidedly 'fishy' menu, short but entirely sufficient will satisfy most palates. An 'amuse bouche' of a tuna delicacy was followed by a masquerade of Mackerel. We also... More

Recommended by trip advisor's member we went there for lunch. Very very nice service, simple dishes but very good quality. We had the calamari and the crab. Very good wine. A very little bit expensive because the portions are small (92€ for 2). I recommend, though for the wonderful view.

Well served food, beautiful location but challenging to get there the first time. The service is very friendly the fish is fresh and if you share the appetisers you can enjoy the variety they propose. View over the sea is stunning.

Lovely modern restaurant with great views over the ocean. Christian and his family make everyone feel very welcome. Go at Sunset during the summer for an aperitif on the deck looking out over the ocean. The food is simple and done well. Great place for family, big gathering of friends or a dinner as a couple.

The restaurant is located in a very nice place. The ocean view is top and the staff is welcoming. The food is excellent. I had a lobster for main course and it was one of the best I ever ate. Really recommended.
