“Popular restaurant in the port area”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We ate there on Friday evening and found a table straight away as we arrived before the main rush after 8.30.

We all ate from the fixed price menu and I had crab terrine but found it lacking iincluding lavour and with a singed crust, but our friends salmon mousse looked tasty. Main course choices were basic, inc skirt steak (a bit chewy), roast herb chicken (tender and tasty). Dessert was limited to 3 choices as the pear and apricot gateau was sold out. The ile gourmande was a good choice and was similar to ile flottante. Perhaps a bit rich for some as it's basically cream and custard. We were asked to leave the table and take coffee in the bar as there was a wait for tables. All in all a good but not great dining experience.

“Reliable local”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a reliable restaurant for basic, well balanced meals: the delicious local mussels, salads, general steak frites and the like. The "Average" rating comes from the lack of anything unusual to eat, combined with the effect of the recent renovation in hot pink and fucshia which spoiled for me any sense of the old port atmishere. You probably won't notice the colour combination when the restaurant is full in the height of summer. A reliable standby when we want to eat 'out' after a long day on the beach.
