Don't bother with the fish and chips , it has no resemblance to the fish and chips loved by the british , the fish portion was stingy and sliced too thin , the batter also was just a little too fine , I wanted to show some french friends fish and chips but in the end I was ashamed .

Our starter course was probably one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. The fish was in an amazing broth: Fish stock, milk, leeks and carrots. My wife had roasted chicken Normandy style and I had the best beef tongue ever. Give this place a shot!

This is a lovely small restaurant tucked away in a quiet spot free from the hordes of tourists around the harbour. Find it by walking from the bus station towards the harbour the keeping right . We were lucky with the weather and ate outside but the interior looked comfortable and inviting. The menu was unpretentious and our fish was... More

We had an okay meal at a very reasonable price, but the Trip Advisor rating of #60 would be far too high for the premises and service, let alone the variety and quality of fare.

Tiny restaurant tucked away near the harbor which looked inviting during one of our walks so we decided to try it in the evening. The service was charming but professional and the Moules Frites were excellent. The wines were very reasonable as were the menu prices but there was no compromise on quality. We had previously eaten at bigger more... More

We dined here one evening, mid-week, out of season when it was quiet. Despite that, we had great service, the ambiance was amazingly cosy and you felt relaxed and the quality and choice of food was very good. We went for the €17,90 3-course menu and we had the goats' cheese salad & fish soup for starters, the grilled salmon... More

By all appearances, the restaurant is well decorated. The terrasse is lovely and the staff are friendly. However, where the restaurant falls down is on the food. Each of us ordered something different (fish, meat, salad) and all were greatly disappointed. The food was simply tasteless. We therefore opted not to have dessert. I would recommend you look for another... More

My wife and I had lunch here. She had the Italian Salad and I had the Moules in Cream and Pomme Frittes. Both were excellent. The location is just back from the harbour and has both inside and outside seating. The service was good.

This small restaurant is big on serving fresh, tasty food. The owners were friendly and attentive ensuring our glasses were refilled without us having to ask. The decor was modern and very clean and the ambience was relaxed and cosy. Recommendable.
