Called in for lunch on Friday, we were running late but they happily accommodated our order. Fish and chips were hot and tasty and everyone is friendly and welcoming. Great way to spend time watching the world go by in Le Dorat.

This restaurant opened for lunch on a Sunday for a 20-person tour group. They provided a homemade soup that needed salt and a buffet. There was some variety but overall, it was just OK.
