A suggestion from Rick Steve's guidebook, led us to this restaurant, and we LOVED it. We went in at about 1730 to see if perhaps we should make a reservation, and boy were we glad that we did. We secured the last reservation of the night. The seafood was sooooooo fresh. Put it this way, the fish is so fresh that the menus are a large chalkboard that they bring to your table - because you're only offered that day's catch! I recomment the oysters on the half shell. As a starter, and then we each had a 3-course Special. I had the John Dory - a fish that was fed to Captain James Cook on his first voyage to New Zealand in 1769. if you're a Jules Verne reader, you might recall that in his novel, "An Arctic Mystery," Verne termed the fish the 'door keeper', referring to the fish that St. Peter brought to Jesus at Jesus' command.
We paired our meal with the restaurant's reasonably priced bottle of Sancerre (a white wine, of course). Great. And the staff was friendly and helpful.

This is a great place to eat - using the Catch of the Day, the menu is then chalked up on huge boards - no chips, no processed food - just beautiful fish, beautifully cooked and beautifully presented. Divine puddings!!! And great service.

Owner is Irish and a fisherman. Chefs are French. Great combination for perfect seafood. Had the Fresh Oysters for starts and the Seabass with a great French combo White wine .."Mas" . Fresh Seafood Only, Don't come here for fish & chips or anything fat fried or meat. This tiny restaurant is hugely popular so make reservations early.

The outside of this restaurant looks a bit rough, but it is actually quite nice inside. As noted, they only serve seafood, and they are popular so expect a wait or make a reservation. We lucked out and were able to walk up and get seated.
My wife had the pollock (23E) and I had the scallops (29E), and the pollock was outstanding. I love scallops and was a bit disappointed - they just weren't very tasty. Thus, one outstanding meal and one average, but the rating is brought down by the average service and the high prices. Shouldn't seafood be cheaper by the sea?
