Sunday lunch with relatives from U.K. who arrived by plane 2 hours earlier. We had eaten there with them before but, though we are not regulars there, we were confident in the experience. A good summery choice of lunch dishes, good prices, beautifully arranged and...More

Excellent service, sat inside as was quite cold and windy, still had good views. Oysters exceptionally good, served on ice with good accompanying dressing. Crab salads good but crab not overly tasty. Good muscadet.

We ate lunch here before walking around the castle. Food is excellent quality most of us had the seafood linguini which is the best I've had anywhere. Desserts are really nice and the staff were really friendly. It was very good value for money.

Great spot as right by the castle. Rose is great, seafood yummy and the service friendly and efficient. Book a table outside weather permitting as view is not the best from inside. Book is essential in peak times. Very popular
