We went here to celebrate our anniversary. Family of seven: kids, parents, grandparents. Everyone found something in the menu they liked (including the kids).
The appetizers were excellent throughout. The main courses were very good with one item that didn't quite meet the taste of the person eating it, though it wasn't bad.
We had a wide selection of meat and sea food from the smallish menu, and everyone loved what they had (with the one noted exception).
Quick and friendly service and appropriate prices.

Bonjour, et merci de votre avis sur notre restaurant. En effet, comme vous aviez précisé à votre
arrivée en salle, rien ne vous convenait à la carte. Le filet de boeuf à la bordelaise que vous avez choisi est un plat traditionnel non revisité. Quant au service, nous ferons le nécessaire afin d'améliorer nos prestations....

Reserved this restaurant for my husband's birthday and had high hopes. Menu somewhat limited and no interesting blackboard specials. Waited 45 minutes before given bread or water. Oysters were fine but other appetizers sounded better than they tasted. Main dishes equally disappointing. Can't say the fish wasn't fresh, just not tasty. Menu lacked local fish, simply grilled, which might have been better than unsuccessful attempts to prepare more complicated fare. Four seafood lovers and all found it mediocre. Didn't order dessert. To add insult to injury, there was a sizable error in the check, not in our favor.

The service was excellent, atmosphere nice and it was really well set up for children.

However, the food was a bit of a let down and didn't really warrant the price tag.

Will probably not return
