Staff pleasant, food terrible, toilet stinks. I cannot understand why anyone would give this place a good review. And all at rip-off prices!

We went for an early dinner (530/6pm) with our kids. The staff were disheveled, the table we sat at had a cooked onion on one seat, crumbs on another, and a small bucket of water beside on the floor (I assume for cleaning?). Kids' and my pizzas were bland (almost like watery tomato paste with no seasoning for sauce), and... More

I went there after walking through the cliffs. At the time, the service was not the best, but the galette was amazing. I eat one with chevre cheese. For drink we ask for the sensational apple cider. I would come back!

We eat here regularly, because it offers reasonably priced food and a good location. The view onto the carpark is not ideal, but it is just metres from the beach, far enough back to offer a bit of shelter from the wind. The food is simple but generous and the wood fired pizza oven is a real plus. The pizzas... More

Just disgusting, frozen food, terrible service. We were missing ingredients on some pizzas. The galettes tasted like microwaved (sticking to the plate and floppy)

We were one of the first customers before the lunch rush yet after an hour of asking about our pizzas and others receiving their orders, we had to walk out because the waitress kept responding "soon" but actually never put in our order. My husband speaks French so it wasn't a language barrier - very poor service and no one... More

Nothin' special at all. We jumped in for Mussles that from outside, looked good, but once at the table with the pot in front of us, everithing really tasteless. The crepe we had for dessert was gummy not sweet and with a homeopatic dose of salty caramel...really impossible to understand what was the flavour... The waiters was correct to us,... More

Only 1 guy was making efforts to provide a good service. The others were just ignoring customers until THEY felt they had time to serve them. One of them being particularly loud and arrogant. Food was terrible. If you had in mid to stop here for a good local Normandie crepe, this is not the right place. It was thick,... More

Went to this restaurant without checking tripadvisor first, I really wished we would have... We ordered pasta, a salad, a children's menu for our 1,5 year old son, and an extra plate of french fries. The pasta was a rediculously small portion for an adult and it was sticky to the point where you could only cut it if you... More
