Great menus, great views and great service! Right on the water. On a nice day, sitting outside is fabulous!

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

We drove many times passed Alexandre going to the Yatch Club located in the same street and were always curious about the place. We had heard many good things about the restaurant.
We were not disapointed. We chose the "Menu D'ete" (Summer Menu) at 50 Euros a piece. We both took the Foie Gras poelee one of our favorite dish and it was perfect with a fig sable. The best for us was the following course composed of roasted sea bass filet with chanterelles. The selection of cheese and the accompanying fruit bread and green tomato preserves were amazing. The desserts: crepe soufle and a selection from the pastry chef were a nice finishing touch.
We had a bottle of Veuve Cliquot which is a pretty sure bet if you love champagne but they have a nice selection of wine.

The down side is the decor that seems a little bit outdated, you have a view of the port but contrary to the nearby Yatch Club you cannot dine on the very small terrace and there are very limited seating near the windows because of the outlay of the place. There seems to be another room but that was not open to the public the night we were there.

But must say that in terms of culinary experience, it is the best food we have had in La Grande Motte.
