Oh my was the food at this restaurant good! We ate there 2 days in a row! They accomodated my gluten-free requirements very well. Between the 2 days we had muscles, oysters, salmon, delicately cooked whole white fish, wonderful GF french fries, lamb and other fish too. The lunch specials are a great value! Wines were nice too. The prices... More

Nice restaurant with fantastic seafood. We had the seafood platter which is a touch expensive but was great. Service was also good. It gets busy in the evenings especially weekends so a table reservation is recommended.

The lunch menu or specials are very good value and would recommend. If you link crustaceans this is the place to go. It's all on show on a big ice table.

Our family stopped here en route from Sahurs to Chebourg. We were so delighted with our choice. 3 course meal for Euro17 - great value. Food was excellent. I had scallop soup, followed by pan fried sole on bed of leeks and ile flottante for desert. Mussels were excellent. Seafood platter is very good. Creme brûlée was amazing! Good atmosphere.... More

We went there just yesterday on a Sunday evening. The food was terrific! The seafoods were fresh and prices were reasonable. The 3-dish course is great for everyone if you don't know what to have.

Delicious large pot of small Moules , those are the ones we love the best . Lovely crisp fries on the side... More

The food was good, nothing bad about it but the staff was a little bit unfriendly and we waited a very long time to get the bill.... We had to stand up and go at the counter cause no one was caring about us. A bit expensive regarding the food quality

Sat down here for lunch, and right from the get go we we're treated very badly. The food was just about OK, but the service and the attitude with which we we're served really took the biscuit. Pretty much ignored most of the time, dishes we're served one at a time and they overcharged to boot. Its not that we... More
