We lunched here with friends and had a terrific meal made all the better by good service, well presented and tasty meals and the perfect location. The local wine is surprisingly good and with the great weather we had a great lunch. Then... back on the bike!

This is one of several restaurants on the main road and we found it particularly good for fish and a good spot for drink to watch the boats in the marina and the world go walking by. Difficult to say whether it is better than others as they are all good and even the worst, if you could find one,... More

Went on our last night and chose the the menu with three choices per course. The food was ok, we both had fish soup and I had roasted sea bass and my wife had cod followed by Cree brûlée and cheesecake. The food was ok but you didn't feel you were 'looked after' as you were in other restaurants.

Having been turned away from L'oceane for daring to lunch after 2:00pm we found the restaurant delighted to take our money after many others in the town stop food after 2! Warm welcome, full a la carte available. 4 of us chose and enjoyed the steak, moules and lamb dishes. Including drinks our bill was 118 euro for 4.

A 'park-up' spot on the side of an excellent and very scenic medieval port. One of many restaurants bordering the port. Very friendly and attentive service, but with a relatively limited wines selection. Well worth a visit.

When it starts to rain and lunchtime calls, where better to go around the harbour than La Belem. Great for people watching, local wines and local seafood. Staff made sure we were staying dry as it was warm enough to sit out.

Looks a bit touristy menu wise but for three courses @19€ we thought we would give it a try.....and very good it was too. Good choices on the menu and very quick service and....perfect for people watching.the quick service may not be such a French but you can linger over coffee! Must be one of the best places to sit...

After reserving a table for 11 people,we arrived with 9. No problem, they quickly rearranged the set up. We were children, parents and grandchildren with non-French speaking members. The staff was accepting with a great sense of humor all these peccadillos. The food was excellent and was served quickly by French standards--appreciated as we had tired hungry children. The soupe...
