We choose to eat here as it seemed to be the most popular restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The modules farci and turbot were excellent. Really good value menu for €19 which includes a glass of wine. They only accept cash.

We ate here three times, twice for lunch and once for dinner. On each occasion the food and service was very good. We tried a few other places but found Claude's to be the best.

Wow! Chez Claude is a bizarre restaurant. Claude himself, the patron, seem to be some kind of a local landmark, at least he behaves like it; chatting, drinking wine from guests bottles, giving orders to the staff but doing really very little. His son is a much more sinister figure: unfriendly and sulky.

The food is basicly ok but in no way impressive. They do not accept credit cards and if you ask for a receipt they give you a very unconvincing, hand written piece of paper. The system is not very convenient for tourists. It is better suited for restaurants specialised in creative tax planning.

OK it's not haut cuisine, but the food was pretty good, and excellent value. Almost full by 1pm, and almost all locals, so they must be doing something right!
Try it - it's very enjoyable.

Our family of 5 had lunch at Chez Claude on a busy mid-August day. Claude the owner welcomed us and moved tables around to accommodate us. Other reviewer point out his rather large ego or "cult of personality" and this is quite true: large portraits and framed photos of Claude alone and with local notables hang in the dining room. Still, this in itself is kind of charming and not really bothersome.

The food was average. No more, no less. Our party didn't detect anything obviously frozen or canned sauces, etc. The atmosphere on the busy beachfront street corner is fun. The 19 euro menu was fine (apetizer, main course and 1/4 bottle of wine). 2 of our party had the mussels and fries for 12 euros. These mussels were extraordinarily good: Large "buchot" mussels, plumb and meaty, steamed in white wine, shallots and garlic. Delicious.
The wine we had was rose and not very good. Service was (very) slow but we were not in a hurry.
Sole inconvenience for us was that it is a strictly cash only operation which meant scrapping up 100 euros in cash for our lunch. It would be helpful if this were posted somewhere before you order.
