This offers a menu for lunch and always includes local dishes which are well cooked and delicious. Plenty of parking and in a nice location a nice traditional eating place and well worth a visit.

This is a traditional French Auberge used by the locals. We visited on a wet Sunday do ate inside. It was incredibly busy and the service standards could not be faulted. The food was delicious and presented very well. We will be happy to eat here again.

We were staying in Port Monards and had been very impressed with the only other place to eat in the village! We ate here several times during the week and were very impressed! I had the salmon in champagne sauce which was fabulous! Very friendly staff who couldn't speak much English at all but that added to the visits as... More

...and always promised ourselves to visit but have left it until now to make good on that promise. It was well worth the wait. We went on a cold lunchtime and thankfully phoned ahead to book because when we arrived we were shown to the only free table in the room. We must have looked cheap because the very friendly... More

Good quality food (at lunchtime when we went).... At least 2 bowls of fish soup in the tureen and a large piece of salmon in a champagne and cream sauce for the main dish. All well cooked and tasty. Very busy with lots of locals at the weekend. Definitely worth a visit.

Thank goodness we ignored a few of the bad reviews! We tried the plat du jour. It included a starter, main, cheese, dessert and coffee for just 16 euros! All well cooked... Although, you may need to be a little adventurous in your experimenting of food... We found ourselves faced with a half of a pigs head for main course!... More
