“forgotten”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We ordered our food and then had to wait 45 minutes before asking a waitress if we had been forgotten. We had - despite 2 waitresses coming and looking at our order at various intervals - so then had a further waituntil the fairly average food arrived.

“Average restaurant”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

The restaurant used to be an excellent restaurant and now it is still not bad for what you pay. 20€ for an entree, main course and dessert is not expensive for what you get. Waiters are friendly and food is good. So if you don't want to spend much and still have decent food this is the place to be.

“Keep clear!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Give this restaurant a wide berth! It has recently changed management, and it has gone from a good reliable eaterie to a restaurant where the food is at best average and the service appalling. One of the serving staff was so rude that one of our number actually had to leave the restaurant as he was so angry. Add to that a slightly dodgy tummy after the mussels, and well, draw your own conclusions…

“Good choice for lunch”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We were there in March and ate in the sheltered sidewalk area.
Our choices: Moules Frites-plump and juicy with wonderful crispy potatoes that stayed hot; Rouget (a white fish) with sauce champenoise & lovely side veg.; and salad compose with a nice slab of fois gras and strips of duck breast. With wine, coffee and dessert (fabulous ice creams) the bill was 88 euros.
We arrived on the late side and the service was brisk verging on brusk. I'd recommend figuring out what you want as quickly as possible to stay on the waitron's good side...it is a tourist town.
