Great restaurant - the food is excellent but go with an appetite as the portions are huge. Very friendly service and a great view over the marina. Do book though as we have never been when people have not been turned away

The location is lovely next to the beach and the food is excellent. We had the mussels and a burger, both were cooked well and the seafood was extremely fresh. The portion size was very good and the waiting staff were extremely helpful with translation as needed. The prices were comparable to other restaurants but the location set this restaurant... More

Had the most wonderful lunch here - my wife and I both chose the Plancha de seiches - an absolutely delicious bowl of cuttlefish, mussels, clams, chorizo, lardons, Noirmoutier potatoes and peppers. I've got to say it was actually the best seafood dish I've eaten in a long long time. In fact, so good that we came back the following... More

As a frequent visit to this beautiful island this restaurant really cannot be recommended more highly. The moules frites never fail to please. Equally, the other fish and meat dishes are superb, the portions generous and the service so welcoming. A real gem in a stunning setting.

We ate here on a lovely sunny day in May. The situation is good, looking out over the harbour full of pleasure boats. The restaurant was full to bursting, but we were quickly found a table as others were leaving. We only wanted a snack, but settled for the Moules Frites - very good. However, what made this place really... More

Fish over cooked and steak just a large lump of fat. This was not what we expected and for the price, we would have been better at the bistro nearby or in another restaurant in the village

You always wonder - this happens to be close to where we are currently staying - will it live up to the good press on Tripadvisor? Its really really good - Steak (huge 550gram sizes) and two different seafood meals - pictures uploaded - I strongly recommend - we are going back before we leave - book in advance!!
