This place is special, how could a restaurant possibly get away with having the same menu for 47 years, because it`s special!!!!
You wont taste fish soup the same as this, (& believe me I have eaten plenty) it`s all made freshly in house, & the mussels unusually cooked, with vegetables, the best I have tasted at any place bar none!!!
To appreciate how really good it is you need to be a local ,because these dishes are served at every other restaurant in the area, but they don`t taste like this!!!
Why do you think Rick Stein made a bee line for this place.
I have been twice in the last month, & would go again tomorrow, simply outstanding!!!!!!
The internal seating area is a bit drab & tightly crammed in, but the wonderful floating pontoon on the river makes up for it.

Lived up to its reputation for a very traditional meal in a great location on the river Herault. Service was attentive and the food excellent. A simple menu choice, meat or fish for the main course. The #1 Fish soup was fabulous, #2 Mussels were plentiful; #3 Terrine of Duck was served from a 'take as much as you like' dish; #4 mains were simply presented and although #5 the 'Vienetta' icecream was probably not available 40 years ago, I guess the liqueur poured over it was!.

Great value as with half a litre of Rose and a coffee, 42 EUROS for two people is hardly going to break the bank. Well worth another visit next time in Agde.

Yes, that's the choice of menu for this restaurant: a very simple five course meal of fish soup; mussels with ratouille, and then pate. This was followed by a choice of one meat or fish main dish and desert. This menu is 17.5 euros per person. Wine comes in a choice of, red,rose or white carafe - we paid 6 euros for a demi litre.
We had seen Rich Stein French Odyssey and decided that when we were next in Agde we would try this restaurant. Last year we walked by on market day, but it appeared to be closed - so we didn't bother. However, this year I decided that we might as well ask if they were open - and we are glad we did. Although , we were the only patrons in the restaurant for most of the meal, the service was friendly and efficient, and we enjoyed the simplicity of the well cooked produce. The menu has clearly stood the test of time. Good local fare at a reasonable price, and we will certainly be back. I am sure that this restaurant is busier in the evenings, and we have only given average for atmosphere because of being the only diners on that lunch time.

My late husband had visited this restaurant some 40 years ago, and while on a family holiday we found it again, we all had a most memorable time sitting on the waters edge in the sunshine having fish soup, and mussels cooked in vegetables! it was so good we went again a few days later. Hope to go again soon !!!!!
I rate this as a not to be forgotten experience, its all basic but they have defiantly got it right.

The meal is at a set price and there is no menu as such. You can have meat or fish, a carafe of red, white or rose! The food is good and cooked fresh every day.
