We visited this place for a light lunch before heading to a sailing tour. We had a fix menu with a selection of starters - The liver paté was fantastic, main corse and dessert. The service was a little bit slow and the terrace was quite hot because of the glass wall, but the food was really good.

Quality of food, taste, service and presentation was exceptional for all four of us. Even better was the reasonable bill considering the quality.
