We visited here twice during our holidays and enjoyed the food on both occasions. We had a variety of food - mussels, burgers and the set menus and all were tasty. The restaurant is really busy though in August and we had to wait outside both times to be added to a list, as they don't do reservations - this was a bit of a pain with two hungry children in tow! Having said that the food arrived quickly once seated. I did think the wine was quite expensive, but thought that in the other restaurants we ate out at as well; perhaps it's just because we haven't been to France for 4 years and I was still expecting cheap wine!

We went here with two families and ordered a variety of dishes. We had burgers -> good, mussels -> not so good, tuna -> okay, side dishes like fries had no taste.
The waiters clearly had no interest in our table, cause I had to go up to the counter to order drinks.
Location is nice, on the boulevard of Jard sur Mer overlooking the small harbor. They were quick in seating a big group without a reservation. They had some problems with two of the five meat dishes not being in stock, so we had order a burger instead of a entrecôte.

It's okay not really special.

Visited lunchtime on a Wed. Was very busy, but service was quick. 2 of us had curried mussels/frites, 1 had creamed mussels and 1 had burger. All were very nice. Prices were acceptable for that area.

We ate here around 8 times last summer, and loved it, took friends recently and were disappointed. The service was not quite up to scratch and the food not quite as good, a request not to have gerkin or onions in a burger was met with a flat refusal and the cooking of the burgers not as ordered, and the server seemed to have no idea which order was which. Disappointed enough not to return.....

We have eaten here regularly over recent years and never been disappointed. The staff are always polite and friendly and work hard as it is always popular in summer. The meals are beautifully presented and always well cooked. It is situated looking out over a lovely harbour which is especially nice at sunset. It is usually our first port of call when we arrive in Jard and often where we have our last meal before returning home.
