I have never given a bad review to a restaurant before and I am sorry to do so now but the food and service at this restaurant was atrocious. Myself and my husband squeezed in here as everywhere else was completely full, my fault for not booking ahead at one of the wonderful restaurants in the town. The service was extraordinarily slow, we both chose a fixed price menu. My overcooked crab starter tasted of absolutely nothing and my husbands langoustines had been so boiled to death that they were complete mush inside. By the time the main course arrived (a piece of shoe leather mascarading as a steak - requested rare!!) I had had enough. It was completely inedible. We decided to leave so I approached the manager(owner?) and told hime politely what I thought of the service and the food. I speak fluent French so there was no room for misunderstanding. He reduced the bill by 1/2 as we had had some wine, I paid and left. At no point did he apologies or express any concern about the complaint. I suspect that he is no stranger to very unhappy customers.

This is the first 'terrible' review that I have posted on Tripadvisor but it is well-deserved!

We were tempted to try this restaurant by the fact that it seemed to be used by locals. If only we'd checked here first!

Starters were OK, however my choice of 'fish of the day' for a main course proved to be a mistake - I received several cubes of an overcooked white substance which certainly wasn't fish of that particular day, and may have been even older than the previous day. It was served with partially boiled tasteless new potatoes (from a can?) sprinkled with a little dried chopped herb of some description

My partner's Poulet au champignon turned out to be an unappetising greasy leg from an elderly hen judging by the texture of the meat

Our desert was an edible supermarket derived tarte au pommes with spray on cream

With wine this meal cost us nearly 70 Euro and was nowhere near worth it!

Staff were generally OK but openly favoured obviously regular customers, whose meals surprisingly looked much more appetising than ours……… perhaps they just made a better informed choice of dish, but be warned - our visit to this restaurant was a huge disappointment
