A great quay side restaurant offering a good selection of food to all tastes and budgets. We had oysters and the filet of merlu, both delicious and beautifully presented. The entrecôte steak was also cooked to perfection. Try the cote de boeuf, served on a platter for two to share but add an extra plate for only €3.50 and it... More

We had the cote de boeuf, and was really tasty. And a great location. Just need to get there early as doesn't take bookings. Arrive by 7:15 and you'll be ok.

Excellent meal sitting on harbour side. The food here is good, well cooked and of a good quality. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. We went early to get a table outside as you can't book and enjoyed a few drinks before the kitchen opened. Good menu choices and the steak was delicious. Having been in Saint Martin several times...

We spent several afternoons here, and that is despite many other excellent options. A great location - sun and shade, outdoors and inside. Good wines and other drinks. Friendly accommodating staff and service.

Packed place for locals and tourists alike. Simple food, but very fresh. Atmospheric place and sitting on the deck on a summer's day is lovely.

Nothing showy just people enjoying the position on the harbourside, the views and the simple menu. the food was delicious, between the 4 of us we had steaks and fish and oysters, all excellent. Lovely service, busy, efficient but we never... More

We were recommended to this place by friends. We were told to go early, get a table outside, sit back and enjoy. Well, we went for lunch and sat inside, but they were quite right. It was a fun, atmospheric place and a great varied menu. However the meats were wonderful. The steaks were pink and the veal delicious and... More

Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, wine menu as big as the food menu. Very popular with people queuing for tables (mainly French people, which I always take as a good sign). Really not good for vegetarians but my meat eating parents enjoyed it so much I was happy to just have a salad starter and enjoy the ambiance
