“Ask the price of your fish !”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

When the two of us arrived there were only four other people in the Resaurant, probably due to it being a French bank holiday evening and was quite everywhere.
The food was good and tasty and the service polite and helpful, but the price??
We both chose fish from the refrigerated display, which was also shown again at our table.
Fish was chosen by us both, Loup and Chappon. (Sea bream and Rascasse)
We didn't ask the price and were charged 43 and 49.50 euros for the fish. (total over £80)
Total bill with starters and Chablis 186 euros (£162) for this money it should be perfect and the
Food certainly hotter when served. A great location with nice food but don't buy the displayed
Fish without checking the price, or suffer the consequences, as we did !!

“Best oysters with best service around”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love high quality "spéciales" oysters. If you do too, this is the place to go. Good service, good wine by the glass, and nice surroundings. I haven't tried anything else there, but something tells me I will soon...

“Modern South East asian ambiance for expensive fresh fish experience”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The ambiance is nice and interestingly designed, with an open area on a multilevel. Actually it's a nice solution because even with a full restaurant the noise is low. The Restaurant is specialized for "coquillages", but has a full menu with all types of dishes mostly inspired by the fresh catches. The service is carefull and quick. For the dessert menu they have a dish that displays all the offering (supposedly home made), the Tarte Tatin was very good, the chocolate mousse could be better.
I decided for a plate of Coquillages, quite good, but I have had fresher (in Nice), and I love sea urchins, and tried 6 of them and yes, they where pretty full, but not so tasty. My family had a "Bourride" a type of local soup, not bad, but to dense. Another had a semi raw tartare which was excellent.
As an appetizer we treated ourselves with 4 crab legs, but in the bill it was written 5 (when mentioned we where told that it goes by the weight, and how can you argue that after it all ended up in your stomac!).
I have one suggestion: since the place is of high class the bread (and even more so the toasts) should be warmed up before beeing served.
Price... it's not cheap, and on certain things is understandable, but nothing is below the 25 € and a Builabaisse at 65 € per person minimum for 2 (this is what is written on the menu)...is certainly exagerated. I don't know what it has to be made of to justify such an outrageous price. (I have not tried it

“Well worth a visit or 2”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were staying at a local hotel and came across this restaurant by chance. We booked for an evening meal & felt welcome immediately on arrival. Excellent staff who explained the menu & guided us to an amazing meal. Would always make a detour to have a meal here. Try it.
