Nicely located on the front beach. The place is spacious. Some tables are facing the sea, some have a view on the kitchen. Great food (maybe still some progress to be made on the desserts). Excellent bread. Very good menu at 65 euros. Excellent wine (reasonable price). Kind service (not all very professional). English speaking (and English menu).

Memorable evening and amazing fare! Thoroughly enjoyed - an upscale restaurant that's also family friendly! Loved our waiter and staff and the food was delicious.

The starters are amazing! We ordered the full menu, but before you even start your first course, the starters will take you away somewhere were only fantastic flavors exist! This restaurant will very soon have 2 stars.

I have been here twice now and both times it has been amazing! It only has one star but I have been to most three stars and this is diffently up there. The nicest touch is that on both times the head chef has come out to explain the food and thank you for coming. Try and book the window... More

The eight (8) ! small bites with the apéritif were of a very good quality. Food throughout the dinner very good to outstanding. Service during the dinner was very good.

With a spectacular view on a stormy sea we enjoyed dinner for 3 at Sel Gris. The start was very promising with an abundance of canapes that fitted well with our cocktails. The olive oil bar was a first and the other 8 (!) were also a true exposition of the chef's talents. While we were the first to arrive,... More

Great experience, service is very well. Started with many surprising amuses. Starter and main course were of a rarely seen quality, nice tastes, good wines. My wife has a long list of ingredients she doesn't eat. I mentioned those while I made the reservation. They managed into every smallest detail to avoid those ingredients in her menu, amuses included. Michelin... More

We went to the restaurant at noon in october 2014 for the 80 th anniversary of my father. We took the menu with adapted wines and everything was perfect : the service , style of the restaurant , seaview, and above all the food. Without any doubt the best restaurant I have been to. What makes it so special is... More

We were at Sel Gris for the "Dining with the Stars" event (4 course lunch for 49 euro) couple of weeks ago. This was not the first time we visited them, but this time everyone around the table agreed that this really was value for money. (would even pay more for this - hope the chef doesn't read this last... More
