Quite cosy with a nice view over the harbour and lot of french families with children.
But don´t be fooled by an idyllic appearance.
The food is awful and the service is even worse.
We ordered shrimps as a starter that was alright and lamb steak.
Foolish of us, you might say, to order lamb in a fish restaurant but the quality of the lambs in Ile de Oleron and Ile de Re are extraordinary and it was the speciality of the day.
What we received after nearly one hour waiting was lamb chops. Cold lamb chops that most likely had been frozen before. No excuse, no interest in giving us something else. Just a shrug. Please stay out of this tourist trap that is a shame for the french cuisine.
A mystery that the tourist authorities can allow such a scam.

A typical tourist trap. 2 of 3 dishes returned being undercooked. No apology from staff, just a shoulder shrug.
