This was one of the lunch venues in our Loire Valley trip. We had the enormous seafood platter which was more than we could eat and there was a wide variety of sea creatures from oysters to langoustine and shrimps. Almost all guests were here...More

Definitely stay here. Request room with terrace. Rooms are small but well equipped and all is comfy. Perfect view of bay, tides and oyster farming. Restaurant very good as well. Impeccable oysters. Breakfast excellent. Very good welcome, desk, help and friendliness.

Had a wonderful meal here for my husband's birthday. Four of us had lunch and as I'm vegetarian they did a special meal for me. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended !

Good venue in this fantastically charming fishing harbour alongside the quay. Plenty of window tables but expect these to be competitive at busy times. Large inside space too. Majoring on seafood but other staples available. Service was quick when we were there although all dishes...More
