We had some really good lobster for lunch. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice. Only negative was the price of water (tap water) that they took 2.5€ per person for.

Check out their online site. There is an English language link! The menu is basically "surf and turf" = lobster and steak! There are also pictures showing the interior. You can make reservations online or by telephoning.
