Had lunch there after a morning at the beach down the road. We went for the mussels, quite good, fresh and filling. The location is quite nice, overlooking a small bay and the jetty for the ferry/boat to Aix. Limited options for kids but they had steak and chips which almost did the trick... Not as much as the ice cream they had for desert though! Just another thing that didn't directly concern us, but a few people came minutes after us and when they asked for the menu were told quite crudely that the kitchen was closed and all they had left were salads. It was just after 2... In July.

Beautiful setting and views
Our starters Fish rillettes were tasty and served with a.creme fraiche sauce
My husband had coquilles st Jaqueline which he thought was good but I had langoustines which looked more like crevettes supposedly flambeed in brandy I don t think these particular langoustines would have survived flambeeing but they did come with a brandy sauce

This is where we go for seafood platters. Great setting overlooking the bay towards Chatelaillon. Lots of renovations have been done - it is very well presented.

The menu has changed a lot over the years - they used to have a cooked seafood platter but now all of the options come with things we don’t like so we do the build your own approach.

Limited free parking so get there early or you’ll have to pay to park across the road

This restaurant was, to us, a very good find and pleasant surprise. From the outside it looks nothing special but inside and at the back of the place it is very good class.The staff were very helpful in finding just the right table. The service was gentle and efficient. The food was excellent in taste and vision. Wine selection was good. For this quality and ambiance, it was very good value. A place to bring a relative for a celebration.
