“Try it!”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

Very nice restaurant on the promenade.. very good food, quick service and with a smile (and we were a party of 25 people). Good atmosphere as well and cosy interior.

Views of course splendid as you are looking out on the beach!

“Liked it better last year”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

I had tried this restaurant last year and loved it, so I made sure to go again yesterday. The food was really delicious and I may have written the place up.
The restaurant is still nice and trendy, but the food was a bit of a disappointment. My risotto was overcooked to the point of being mushy, the batter on the crispy pleurottes was thick and dry, and although I don't like my scallops overdone, these were totally raw.
The chocolate sauce on the dame blanche was thin and watery. The wine was good.
I had boasted to my partner that I was taking him to a great place but I ended up with egg on my face, so I am slightly miffed. ^^
The terrace is fully covered at night and heaters turned on, which is great when it's a bit chilly. What is not so great is the only opening that's left is the size of a wide door. The terrace ends up being like an indoor smoking restaurant. Cigarette on the right, cigar on the left, not so nice.

Good food and I had an excellent steak tartare, prepared at the table. My friends had oriental food and they were happy too.

Good food, nice view, a little pricey. Friendly manager. Staff sometimes look a little stressed out.
