(Look at my reviews. I rarely if ever write a bad review so it must have been very disappointing )

Do not get off the train to go to this beach if you intend to eat there! The staff had no interest in us. We hired a bed at highly inflated prices to be told all the ones we wanted were reserved for locals. The beds then remained empty most of the day!!!

Having hired a bed we got no kind of preferential service. We were told we could not reserve a table in the restaurant but could put our name down on a list to be seated when we came up. BUT when we got there, despite people not being able to reserve, we got none of the lovely free tables with a sea view we could see.

Instead we were put in a corner with no shade and no view. It was too hot without shade so we asked to move. Again we were not allowed one of the 2 or 3 free tables with a shaded sea view. We were then put inside the restaurant area back by the kitchen where the management were having a meeting.

The staff hardly noticed us but were very attentive to people who arrived a lot later and were given the free seats.

We waited ages and ages for service. The food - limited and very very expensive for what it was! They are trying to be fine dining next to a beach and actually just charging very high prices for normal food. Ruined my day!

Go to Botri instead. Lovely cafe, simple sea food, lovely service - makes you feel like you are on holiday and gives you a good memory to take home.

Service? You expect service? What? At THESE prices?

Really. Onion-flavoured rissoto (was to be a seafood melange) with three mid-sized but aquacultured prawns (well prepared, BTW) with a jaw-dropping price.

And no attempt at managing communications in another language (not even Italian).

Upon arrival, the staff had not noted our reservation. Both cocktail and first course arrived at the same time, but we had to wait 1.5 hour for the main dish. While waiting, another waiter even asked if we wanted dessert!

In total, we were served by 4 waiters.

Nobody came with any apologies.

In the end, we explained that we were very unhappy with the service and negotiated to get the cocktail for free.

What was positive was the view and a pretty location.

Here we ate same dish as in "Le Matahari" (located 700 meters away, on the beach.) "Le Pain de Sucre" lost. With wide margin. Wine good, but overpriced. Service not nice. The young waitress wanted to put us on the terrace. But an older lady (owners wife?) came along, and told us all was reserved, and put us inside. As we later saw, it was several empty tables on the terrace all afternoon. Very nice bay for bathing, just a few meters from the train. But I take my own lunch, next time.

This restaurant is located in a little creek, away from the main tourist areas. The food is excellent, from beginning to end. Even though they have mostly serve fresh fish, they also serve meat. The service is also excellent and very friendly.

After your lunch, you can go lounge on the beach chairs and order drinks from the restaurant.

Overall great location and great restaurant :)
