The view is not spectacular. The drinks are less than mediocre. The service--horrendous--as Americans we saw several people who arrived after us--ordered and served their food/drinks before we ordered. There are lots of choices on the waterfront. Don't make this place one of them.

We can tolerate slow service, we've come to expect it in France. But watching people who came later get served first is annoying. Oh, food was average at best.

Service is rude and bad for Russians also. Not just for British and Germán as I read in previous reviews:) But nobody cares, cause tomorrow new tourists will visit it without checking TripAdvisor - just because of location.

This certainly lived up to previous poor Tripadvisor reviews. The location is great. The food and service are terrible. No omelettes avaianle - they had run out of eggs. Salads were disgusting. Quiche was poor. Won't be back
