This restaurant is located on an avenue with lots of others it is just off the seafront. The location is partly in covered extension. Food is very good and the menu is unusual. Prices are reasonable. Good service.

No need to go to Thailand. Chez Bastien will serve you shrimp cake as only a chef can make. This in a great atmosphere with a warm service
