Superb food and friendly service. We speak/understand a small amount of French but the waitress was lovely in explaining to us the menu. Opted for fillet steak which was superb and my partner had monkfish which was also great. Lovely wine and relaxed atmosphere. Had the soufflé for desert which was simply superb. A little pricey but well worth it.

Lively restaurant with a good menu de jour, and a good choice of wine. Friendly service and not rushed. The souffle dessert was excellent!

We solely selected this restaurant based on a review that said the chef kindly provided off menu vegetarian dishes. However our experience was more in line with the other comments about poor service here. When we requested a vegetarian dish we were sharply told this was not possible and that 'this was a seafood restaurant'. The attitude of the service was at the lowest you would expect. So definitely go here if it is seafood you want with the worst service you will find in the region.
