The food was great, however we had to wait over 30 minutes after we finished eating to get our check. In fact, other people who finished eating after us were able to pay their bill before us. I will not eat there again.

We had dinner their twice. Each time we had classics: moules & frites, galates, fish&chips and crepes. Every time the service was great, nice with a smile and the food was very good - fresh and tasty. We are adding one more star for the location, view to the channel and really super service!

Right in the middle of this small port-town is the Le Vieux Pecheur. We were greeted by the server and handed a menu as we enter. We ordered galettes that were delivered in a few minutes. A decent side galette and tasting pretty good.

We were a small group but were seated very quickly. They had several English menu's but didn't speak a lot of English. We had our order taken quickly and the food they brought was a good sized portion, hot and tasty. Everybody was really happy with their choices. They had Pizza, Seafood and the usual meats and salads. From the... More

Don't be put off by the casual appearance. The food here is top notch. The fish and chips are excellent! The smoked salmon pasta dish is a winner, too. A really great meal in a very picturesque location.

We have eaten here for the past two evenings and can confirm the feelings of others - this is Good Food and inexpensive. The staff go out of their way to accommodate my poor French (at least I try) and the quality of what they bring forth from the kitchen is first class with excellent sauces and trimmings. We look...

We are here one night, but we wouldn't recommend it. The restaurant was busy so looked inviting. The restaurant was really cold. My husband ate from the special scallop menu, starter was ok but the main was usual, rice, carrot and scallops...with a strange, indescribable sauce which was basically just salt. I had a savoury crepe which was dry....I probably... More

Following a poor experience at an earlier restaurant we found this establishment excellent. The food was lovely and the staff made an effort to accommodate 12 without a booking. Would definitely go there again and recommend to all.

Pizza's are small, expensive, and taste not good. The pizza's were served before we had our drinks. And they only except cash. Probably they don't care because they are located on prime location. Don't go here.

This place is right on the water and you can see cars, boats and people passing by at the very point of the harbor/port entrance. You walk in and order something to drink or even something to eat, and when it's all said and done and you get ready to pay the bill at the cashier, this is when you... More
