Visited here for a meal, was looking forward to something special from the reviews if read, but I was very disappointed. Firstly, the service was slow. Then we were only given one of our two ordered starters. Then we were served a fillet steak each - on its own - asked the young guy for some frites, which never appeared.... More

This trendy restaurant has changed its menu this year and it offers more than previously. The location is really good being at the port, hence it attracts the boating fraternity. We had a mixture of fish dishes and meats all of which were good. A disappointment was that the cocktails were not cold but we were brought ice upon asking... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch. We got there at just 2pm there were quite a few people eating but also a good few free tables. We were met at the door by a waitress who asked us what we wanted. We said we were looking for food we got 'no go next door'. I can only assume they... More

I would suggest that the snacks were probably the best things to order. The locals seemed to be ordering tapas style dishes. We ordered main courses and they weren't very good.

A great classic in Benodet! The service is consistently excellentt and the food fresh and good. A wonderful location right in the port of Benodet. The terrasse has great views but inside is also very pleasant. Fish is outstanding but any other dish also very good. Do not hesitate, locals love it!

Popped in for lunch. We hadn't booked but not being high season it wasn't a problem. The location is great right on the waterside. I had mussels and chips which I enjoyed.

The service and food were excellent. The starters: Nems de thon and foie gras with the chef's chutney were the best dishes we have been served in this 10 day holiday. The steak was delicious, Cooked to perfection and the presentation was excellent. It was however a bit pricy ...the only reason for not giving it the full 5 stars.

We reserved a table for the evening. Lovely table, looking onto the water...we ordered a Kir as an aperitif, before we had got halfway through this... More

This restaurant, situated on the quay is very trendy. The menu is roughly the same as when we visited over 7 years ago. Prices are quite high , service good. Recommend sitting at a table inside looking out at the harbour as smokers congregate outside. The fillet steak is good as are the oysters. The cocktails are too sweet and... More

Great food and very fast service (probably a little too fast). Beautiful location with great views from the outside dining area
