“An unforgettably great place”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

No fussy cream sauces with your fish at this restaurant: it is like the fisherman would have eaten a century ago. There is just a little caraway seed added to the dish.

You cut your own bread over a barrel in the centre of the restaurant (the French for pal, copain, comes from the words couper - to cut - and pain -bread), so you will probably get to know some of the other diners.

The boss (who does the cooking), his sous chef and the man who serves the food are all fantastic people. They have their own farms where they grow much of what they sell at the restaurant.

Most of the meals are fish stocks (marmites) and there is a colossal amount of food. Our shells from one marmite for 2 people alone filled a bucket.

Great fun, wonderful people, unmissable.
