Superb burgers and great position in the harbour. Price wise it was about right for the island. Enjoyable hour although the staff not very welcoming.

Family trip to La Flotte - walked around port and were ushered in by friendly waiter. After this service was adequate - staff seem to not have to push themselves - perhaps a manager figure would help. Had moules frittes and burgers - all food...More

Warm wine, worst fish ever tasted in a French restaurant, burned fish burger which was taken away and replaced 30 minutes later. Over cooked sardines. However we only paid for the beers we had and the manger could not apologise enough and was very helpful....More

Great location overlooking harbour. Friendly restaurant and good value for money. Not fine dining, but we enjoyed our meal. Would certainly return.
