The location along the port is nice. The menu is interesting and moderately priced.

We started with risotto, it was a Huge Portion but, regrettably to Salty. We also had the Squash Flower Fritters, a local speciality - they were tasty, but I was expecting more. For main courses we had the Duck, very good, and the Gambas. Gambas are not the same taste or texture as shrimp we are used to in North America, they are soft, almost mushy, and have more of a wild flavor than sweet and fresh, there were 4 served with a delicious homemade tartar sauce. For dessert we had to have their Lemon Meringue Pie, it was good, and the Chocolate Fondant, also good.

Everything was good, but we were expecting wow!, amazing! - a culinary rush - but in the end it was actually quite ordinary...

Went here on a whim after being recommended by our hotel (Le Cavendish) and seeing good tripadvisor reviews. We were lucky enough to get a table straight away (arrive early and you might be lucky, or reserve - there were people coming in to reserve for the next night, definitely worth it if you can't get in on the first try!). Staff were very attentive without being at all pushy (thank you for speaking excellent English when my French is terrible), everything we ate and drank was brilliant (vegan tofu burger, tuna salad, deserts, wines and cocktails), and the vibe overall was perfect. Very relaxed, not too formal, but felt pretty special at the same time. The setting is great, right by the harbour (as another reviewer says, great for people watching) and although probably due to the location it's not the cheapest meal on the planet, I hadn't spent as much as I thought I had when the bill came...

Let’s start with that booking a table is essential. We saw so many turned away without a reservation and sadly they missed out on an incredible dining experience.
We had the three course set Prix Menu, and it was wiry every single euro. It was truly delicious and nothing was disappointing, everything was eaten and we left there later on feeling so satisfied. Service was great, really friendly and not at all pushy. Great location for people watching.

The food options and the prices were very reasonable. Left there with a full stomach and smile on my face. Location was great, on the harbour and staff were friendly too.

Would definitely recommend.
