Poor service. Slow. Very slow. Verging on incompetent. Tasteless bouillabaisse. Watery and thin. Of the 5 different types of fish only one had any taste at all. One of us described the bouillon as dishwater and I think it is more like bathwater. Expensive. By...More

Nothing best by starting with complimentary wine from the bar next door! We got spoiled by having a table next to the window with amazing view to the small marina. We went for the Bouillabaisse, a fish soup. Expensive, but worth every penny! Would definitely...More

Make sure to make reservation before you go, not far from the the sea, they have great local food and bouillabaisse.

Fantastic bouillabaisse. Excellent service. Gold wine. Good view. Authentic. Be in time. Ask for a table next to the window.
