Nearly haute-cuisine restaurant with delicious fish and oysters and great choice of wine. The chef is very friendly and helpful in making the choice, and very passionate about his job. The place is also very popular among local people which is always a great sign in a touristic location.

if you fancy good local cuisine of a high standard, inside or alfresco, overlooking the beautiful beach than look no further. It might be a little more expensive but worth every penny. (fine dining at mid range prices). I highly recommend it. After several visits neither myself nor any of my friends have been disappointed, au contraire.

We visited again this year and had another really good dining experience. Very personable waiting staff, great food and entertainment by a a young diner (aged about 2 years). once again another great sunset and everybody enjoying the moment. the lamb was reportedly very good and my own dish (marlu) was very prepared and presented. simply a lovely night!

Fortunately they had a spare table (apparently pre-book is the best way to go) the food was so good, My starter of Moules would have been a main course anywhere else and a Sea Bass that was pleasing. my other half had a terrine that I am assured was...
