Unbelievable lunch. Mix of fish, vegetables on top level. Best restaurant in ile de re. Booking advised. Not ideal with small children ;-)

Charming restaurant with absolutely fantastic service, heavenly seafood situated in the charming seafront of la flotte . I recommend the warm langoustine and Iberico ham salad and the wonderfully delicately flavored monkfish "marmite". A prodigious wine list and desserts are mind blowingly good. V v v good indeed.

Good quality fresh fish dishes served here, worth every penny! I've been here 3 times in the last 9 months, with friends and for a romantic evening. I highly recommend the sole and Bouillabaisse - so tasty! Desserts are out of this world, especially the soufflé and the chocolate/after eight dessert (sorry I can't remember it's correct name), which is... More

Just experienced our second dinner this week, unusual for us to repeat! This is a special place, Madame oversees the house actively and the staff is attentive but never intrusive. The cuisine is elegant with creativity and innovative use of product. The carpaccio of maigre was SUPERB, immaculately fresh flavored beautifully and covered with fresh summer truffles. The salad of... More

Turned up looking like a drowned rat due to sudden rain shower. The Madame of the house not only brought a towel for me but offered me a change of shirt from her husband's wardrobe! Such hospitality. We needed a coupe after the rain and delicious it was too. A amuse of melon sorbet with a sort of Pinneau cream,... More

A lovely old interior. Excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals. The fish was beautifully served and the dishes were very imaginative. There was a very good selection of desserts all served with great attention to detail. Although I knew it was a fish restaurant, I was surprised that there was not one meat dish on the menu. We would... More

We have dined with Kathrine at least 10 times each year for 11 years. The quality and consistency of this restaurant is remarkable. Madame insists on perfection each time every time but you must like fish.10 fish starters,10 fish main courses and a desert menu to die for (the salt caramel soufle is a miracle every time). Hot foie gras,... More

Clearly a chef is present in the kitchen. No problem to ask off menu products depending in the season ( carpaccio de dt jacques / dos de turbo / etc). Starters are creative ( lotte au chorizzo / etc)To be avoided by meat lovers ( exclusively fish oriented). Decent price looking at the quality. Wine menu quite small and limited.
