A very busy and popular restaurant and certainly necessary to make a reservation. The food was well presented and delicious; generous portions. Service excellent and would certainly recommend.

Easy dining due to the different menu formulas with choice for everyone (fishsoup/carpaccio/fish & meat) View on the harbour. Nice setting (typical french), only the waiters could pay a bit more attention to their business..

Lots of locals see Lusitania as their fine gourmet evening out. We have been there several times and think their set menus are very good value: fresh ingredients, fish playing the main part. Still, they put something creative into each dish, not just the run...More
