We had an early dinner here on a warm summer's day. The location, on the main boulevard with a view of the port, is excellent. I was amused by the friendly waiter who told my son in excellent English that his phone should not be on the table, even when he wasn't using it. We had mixed feelings about the food: the salade Parisienne was average and rather small. The mussels were tiny but very tasty and our home made frites looked an tasted like left overs from lunch. A bit later, the table next to us got a much better looking portion.

Friendly staff, attentive service and great, cozy location on the boulevard. Don't expect an inventive menu with tastes to tickle your tastebuds. It's menu is about the same as all the others on the boulevard. quite boring and uninspired. Not bad food, just poorly executed by cooks that don't seem to care.
I think it's a minimum requirement of a seaside restaurant to cook fish properly.My fish was severly overcooked and dry (risotto was pretty good though)
If food is not your main reason to visit, tgis restaurant offers a lot of charm, though, and the personell was very good. Prices were decent

Paid a lunchtime visit during a rainy day. Food was adequate, portions not huge. My husband's skate was good as was my veal escalope . Haricots may have been frozen but were ok, frites were excellent, crispy and freshly cooked. The waiter was very helpful. However, a visit to the toilets involved a spiral staircase, which was a little scary to negotiate.
They were clean, however. Not sure if they had a ground floor toilet for disabled visitors.

After a long search of a place where we can eat fish and seafood at a reasonable price in a friendly environment, we found this bistro.
We were seated outside in a half sunny place what we were happy for, since it was really warm that day.
After taking the order, the food arrived quite fast and wast good. Not the best, but good. They advertise their potatoes as home-made - and they might be.
The price of the drinks was quite high, but I presume everywhere around was the same.
The stuff was friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is located alongside all the others next to the road and port/harbor. All the restaurants were full, except this one, so you already know it's not going to be fabulous.

Some of the dishes were decent, the mussels were about 60% shut - so not edible. Service was fine and reasonably efficient, and the decor is that of an old fashion bistro.
