Visited this week. Luckily booked at midday for the evening when they were turning people away. Took a chance on what we were ordering and we were not disappointed, all three courses were so well presented and tasty. The staff were very friendly, spoilt a bit by, I presume, the male owner who was collecting the money and it took about 20 mins to eventually pay our bill. Lovely setting though and we would go again.

Although I feel the owner could be slightly more welcoming (he seems to have his good and bad days), It is always a pleasure to go back to this well -run and cosy place. We have never been disappointed by the innovative and deliciously tasty dishes served in the restaurant. And try and keep a little bid of appetite for the end of the meal for the homemade puddings.

This is our third visit here. We had eaten here twice last summer. The food is still very good from starters right through dessert. Though we felt that the menu choices were both quite limited and a bit unusual, they were all good. If the carte is the same when you visit, you should understand that you won't find any typical choices. So that's good or bad, depending on how open you are to experimenting. Having said that, none of the dishes were strange (bad) in any way. In fact they were interesting and tasty. My cabillaud was really good. It had a vanilla sauce and was accompanied by fennel in an orange juice sauce. It may sound odd, but it was wonderful. Our desserts were both pretty good.

This is a great place to experience local food. All the dishes can be found on the chalk boards around the room, with lots of choice. Not a lot of English spoken so the dish can be a surprise, but all are great taste and quality. You need to book as this is a very popular place, but do go when the weather is better so you can enjoy the view and the path to the restaurant is not muddy.

Book ahead, we were lucky to get in by chance as this place is full every night in peak season. We were there in August and it was full at lunch and in the evening. The setting is fantastic, simple wooden huts set over the water - very rustic. All menu boards are in french but the owner does speak a little English and so with our broken french we managed to order and had a fabulous meal. It got a little chilly and the owner even offered us a jacket! A must visit!!!
