Thought the fish was very good. Terre et Mer also very satisfying. Good atmosphere and wine choice. Maitresse was unimpressed with our lack of interest in cheese course (we were too full!) but a good fun night had by all

Really enjoyed the fish soufflé and my wife had superb cod with black pudding and red wine sauce. Simply stunning.

Fresh food, excellent prepared and very tasty. The seats outside could do with a bit more shading for lunch especially since it may take a while until food is served. But definitely worth the wait and with 28.50€ excellent value

At just 28,50 Euros for four courses, I can understand completely how the Michelin Guide listed this place with a coveted 'Bib' rating. In fact the price we paid for such a wonderful meal was a little embarrassing considering I have in the past paid...More

We called up to find if they serve veggie food too, we were a gang with a mix of veggies and non veggies. All we got was a Pasta with no sausage, no salt, no taste.. Yuck.. The service is so poor, arrogant, not willing...More
