there is nothing special in this place, nothing really bad but surely nothing really good neither aside from the fact that it is located on the harbour... The food is just ok and the service let you the feeling that they don't really care about you which may as well means that they don't really care about your money (... More

We were here late in the afternoon for tea and coffee. You can also get something to eat at all times, but not an elaborate menu then. The staff was very helpful and nice. I glimpsed at the menu and it certainly invited to come back one day.

I returned to this restaurant after visiting several years ago for the best prawns I have ever eaten. The food was as good as I remembered (I had fish though most patrons were going for the various meaty options). Cracking chips and good value drinks. Great location for people watching too. One pointer- we arrived at 9pm and had to... More

Great beef brochette, excellent quality and nice portions. The fish was good, but the highlight was the French version of a fresh buffalo mozzarella served with tomatoes.

We went there on a rainy day and this place was half full with locals and tourists. So we tried and it was a fantastic find! The setting was cozy and casual, the staff were friendly and efficient. We ordered the oyster platter and it was very fresh and tasty, the fish soup was sooo BIG and yummy. The price... More

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.
