This is a restaurant attached to a hotel but is really good. Unusual decor and design in a very modern typically french manner. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine and the location on the seafront is or course excellent.

Very windy in February and the warmth and welcome of Grain de Folie was very welcome. Service is impeccable and the food really good. We share salmon in different ways and the beef tartar as the pork were prepared to perfection. A very nice place indeed.

Taken here for a business dinner. Found the menu to be comprehensive with good choice (they also had it in English). We had the set menu and really pleased with my selection. Good food, well cooked, beautifully presented, great friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Loved it.

Great location for a dinner watching the sunset! Food was delicious and service excellent. We had the set mune, 3 courses for €29 and they were happy ti serve a cheese plate in place of dessert. Worth a visit!

My partner and I visited Grain de Folie for an evening meal. The food was gorgeous, the services was absolutely brilliant and there was a lovely vibe in the restaurant. Just to top it off, it was very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend!
