Every aspect of this restaurant was a disappointment; the "harbour view" which we specially requested on booking was blocked by a tent-extension to the restaurant and no offer was made to move us to it. The service was beyond laughable; absolutely not due to the staff - who remained efficient and cheerful - but they were totally insufficient for the number of tables. Every single request took so long to action that we thought it had been forgotten. Yes it was busy - but that is presumably the normal state for a seaside restaurant on a Friday night in August. And then there was the food: across the board it was shockingly, unbelievably poor. For a seafood restaurant to overcook every item of seafood to such an extent is utterly pathetic. Langoustines were reduced to dry, tasteless blobs more reminiscent of cotton wool than the juicy, sweet morsels they should have been. A sea bream had the texture of rubber, a bass, like cardboard. (And, when I see "en croute de sel" on a menu I expect a whole fish in a salt crust, not just a thin (overcooked, of course) fillet with some pointless, inedible, "salt meringues" on top. There was an attempt at some sophistication with vegetable purees, jellies and reductions but they were served on a plate so hot that they dried out or melted into inedibility. The totality of this bleak experience could only be explained through poor management. Certainly every aspect of the operation needs review - from ordering and cooking to the delivery of (hopefully) properly cooked food in a timely fashion to the customers. I would very strongly recommend that no-one visit this establishment until an "under new management" banner appears on the outside.
