We sat on the Brasserie side and the view is phenomenal. The food however did not provide any such grandeur. My fish lacked flavour, was under seasoned and the sauce bland. My dinner companion ate the andouillette which I would not have eaten. It was undercooked, had hard bits and a gamey flavour which scared me. Our first server was... More

The restaurant is not fancy , but our experience was positive. The food was fresh and tasty, and a relaxing view of the seaside. They had daily menu options, and reasonable prices all in all. The mussels were a delight. The place itself is average, but yes, I recommend it and I would go back again.

We love this restaurant with delicious food and lot of local character. Go early in the evening so that you do not have to wait too long to be served. Everyone is very charming and lovely.

When at the Normandy seaside, it would be a shame not to have fresh seafood. Our choice was Normandy Mussels--mussels sprinkled with garden herbs and drizzled with fresh cream. What an incredible treat! Hot, buttery, creamy! Fantastic! We each ordered a pot and couldn't finish. We were fortunate to have an outside table and the views are to die for.... More

We had to try it because we have stayed for so many years at Les Roches Blanches in Cassis and we were not going to be able to stay there this year. We had made reservations, had asked for a window table, but failed to distinguish between a window table on the enclosed terrace and a window table in the... More

The food in this restaurant was okay but nothing more than that. The waiter wasn't very friendly. It looked as if he didn't like his job very muc. We went here for the exceptional view on the cliffs and the beautiful sunset. You don't have to be here for excellent food.

We found this little place at the far end of the prom . It looks a bit unwelcoming but it's worth a visit. The views are fantastic especially for the sunset over the white cliffs the Monet captured so well. Good little spot for a drink, snack or full set menu and the fruit de mer is fab

Youthful or lively mature elderls, characterful locals enjoy the sunset and what a sunset? What will set in critical perspective Monet's emblematic work currently displayed in Rouen at the Beaux Arts Museum. It was a July sunset, crisp, radiant, deep and luminous. The food was good, simple and very decently waited. Worth primarily because of the location and the joyous... More

Appetizer of avocado with shrimp was fine, but everything else was downhill from there. Bread was stale and slightly burned. Fish did not taste fresh and sauce was not tasty enough to hide it.

Terrible food, rude service, it´s a shame as this place has a huge potential thanks to its location: looking directly over the sea and the cliffs. Let´s hope someone competent buys this place one day and turns it into a great place to go!
