The setting of Chez Fonfon is truly idilic overlooking a small harbour with colourful little houses and small fishing boats. The food inside is no disappointment and the bouillabaisse is a bowl of safffron flavoured fish delights. A perfect authentic delicacy.

Limited but enough choice of plates. They serve local dishes such as Bouiabaisse but als other traditional dishes. Prices on the upper side. Service rather slow. Located in a nice area.

I was completely satisfied. Good table by the window overlooking an attractive small harbor. Perfect service. All the fish were brought to the table before they were cooked. Bouillabaisse was as expected. Good wines.
