We had dinner here and were not disappointed. The staff were super friendly and very helpful with the menu. The restaurant is small and charming. We had escargots, monk fish, and linguini with mussels and shrimp. It was all fantastic.

A great location off the main tourist area. We had the lunch menu, which was a lot of food at a great value. The waitress was nice and helpful, especially to two American tourists. My fish dish was wonderful. We will definitely eat here again.

Family owned and super friendly this is a place to go for a great meal. You will get more than anyone should ever eat and yet somehow the food vanishes.

Delicious meal, with charming service from two very busy ladies, and their delightful dog. The ratatouille was fab. We can see why the local people eat here!

Fish soup starter was delicious and plentiful. Fillet with foie gras also delicious with plenty of vegetables. 🍷 also excellent.

We booked a table for 8 in advance - we would recommend that as it was really busy and is quite small. We could not have been more impressed. The two women who were front of house were attentive despite being very busy and the...More
