Haven't been here for three years but it didn't disappoint. Food was great, as was the service. It was a picture on a plate. The house Bordeaux was delicious. Sitting outside by the sea was perfect. Couldn't fault it!

Beautiful location overlooking Baie de Nauzan, this restaurant appears to aspire to haute cuisine but manages to fail. The food quality is average and highly priced presumably attributable to the vista. Wine selection is comprehensive but also maximises cost and profit margin. Staff are efficient....More

Visited late October expecting quiet seaside restaurant having discovered it during a walk along the beach during the afternoon. Was overwhelmed by menu, service and pleasantly buzzing atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys excellent French dining in informal surroundings.
