Nice place at the old port. Great with kids as they can chose what to eat. I loved the food, especially the dessert buffet and cheese options...

The most orribile place I have ever been,for ages. 28€ to eat badly and drink warm bear (a small one). Waisted time and money. The end.

If you have a big appetite this Buffet is great value for money! You can start with a great selection of salads & charcuterie, then feast on moules, frites, sardines etc. The meat & veg also looked tasty. There was also a good variety of...desserts, followed by an excellent cheeseboard. Not top notch food but for 24 Euros a veritable feast in a nice location!More

My first impression was like " hmmmm I'm not sure, the are not really welcoming" but then it turned out they were just super busy. But here it is what you get for €24 per person: eat and try as many things as you like...from starter to desert, water and coffee. Their foods taste nice, and fresh. they are continuously topping it up all the time and as soon as you've finished with your plate they'll clear it out for you. I would say it is very good value for your money.More

After wandering past a row of many restaurants and not being sure just what we wanted to eat, we stumbled across this buffet option. It was a delightful surprise. They offered a very good selection. My wife particularly appreciated the salad selections. I sampled both...meat and fish selections before hitting the good dessert selections. All was complemented by a pleasant house wine. We finished off with included coffee. Good food, great selections and at E24 each good value compared to neighboring restaurants.More

This is an all you can eat buffet, that has everything from traditional French dishes (bouillabaisse) to cheese and greek ntolmades! The price is close to 25 euros (without drinks).

Tonight, we had dinner here in this nice buffet restaurant. We ordered a drink, paid in advance for the dinner, and from that moment on, it was all ours... we enjoyed the tasteful dishes and selections of desserts. I think this place may also be...a great spot when traveling with a group.More

The photographs on Tripadvisor are good, accurate and as far as I can see, recent. There are plenty of starters, main courses etc. The beef was a little on the gristly side but was still ok. As it says, eat as much as you like....For me and my partner, this restaurant represents good value. I agree the staff could be a little more friendly but that doesn’t affect the taste of the food. No, it is not gourmet cooking but was ideal. Lots of cheeses for desert albeit mainly Brie but still very good.More

If you want to be treated rude and barked at this is the place to go. While I sat down at the large terrace which was empty but for one table, my wife went to the toilet and was halted at the door and told...roughly that she had to pay 2 euros for the toilet. My wife told that we were sitting at the terrace and were going to have drinks. Then two waitresses came to the terrace and asked me unfriendly “what do you want?”. I ordered some drinks and the waitresses turned without saying another word. Then I asked whether there was some problem. Both started explaining very agitated to me that this was a restaurant and that I should order food, but that they would bring the drinks. Then I said: no need, I withdraw the order. The waitresses left. In the meanwhile my wife came back and said that she was treated awfully rude. Well, so was I. We left but then were literally screamed at that we could not leave and had to have drinks. We told them that this is no way to treat your customers. We walked away and were then threatened that they would send people to come after us. I strongly recommend not to go there. If you look further you will find similar experiences with other reviewers.More
