Le Pirate was conveniently situated next to our hotel and could be accessed internally. Seafood a specialty but a varied choice on the menu. Food well cooked and presented by very helpful staff who all spoke English. One caution must be the cost of eating...More

We regularly eat in this restaurant either in summer on the harbor dominating first floor terrace or in winter in the cozy main restaurant. You'll find a variety of good food on the menu, they have a decent wine list and serve good draft beer.

We had a little lunch with the 3 of us, consisting of a small Caesar salad and a soda drink. It was tasty including some French bread, but around €60 was somewhat high priced.

Had a quick lunch here of an excellent gazpacho followed by a prawn and avocado salad. A well shaded terrace faces the road and the staff are very friendly.Not cheap, but mid-range.

There was plenty to choose from on the menu. The bouillabaisse was very satisfying, if a bit pricey. The service was good and compared very favourably to other places we visited.
