Remembering our pleasurable previous visit off season we ventured there once more in June. Slank fair-haired helpful and kind waitress and white wine will be our best memories this time. The owner was arrogant when I preferred simple sherbet or ice cream over the sophisticated...More

The food was the best meal we had on our trip to the Royan area. We had a three course meal with wine and the quality was excellent and cheaper than some other restaurants on the same beach that we had tried. So you do...More

Beautiful location overlooking Baie de Nauzan, this restaurant appears to aspire to haute cuisine but manages to fail.

Visited late October expecting quiet seaside restaurant having discovered it during a walk along the beach during the afternoon. Was overwhelmed by menu, service and pleasantly buzzing atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys excellent French dining in informal surroundings.

Very good restaurant with a great situation right down by the ocean. Food was very high quality and reservation is certainly advisable. Menu a bit limited but still a great experience. Staff helpful and attentive also.

Very nice restaurant very well located with a wonderful quiet view. The carte is very simple and there is no a la carte but only menu. Price is a bit on higher side consider you pay for the view. Starter arrive 2 min after ordering......More

Very much a "fast food" restaurant, not that it is MacDonald's, but that they only give you an hour to eat. Ordered aperitifs, which arrived with the wine ordered for the meal. The starters then arrived about 30 seconds later. When we finished the starters,...More
