This is a really nice classy restaurant practically on the beach. The food is elegant and tastes great. The service is good but a little aloof. If you are willing to pay a little extra then this is the place to eat.

Sunday lunch on the terrace looking at the beach. Seafood delicious as well as everything else our party of four chose. Service was fine except the waiter kept forgetting our bread!

We had an amazingly delicious night of food and wine here with friends. The food is utterly impeccably prepared and presented (ate from the brasserie menu but seated in the main restaurant). Generous and innovative and fresh. Lovely service and accommodated our sleepy child well on a lovely table. I was so impressed. Very much recommended.

The staff work very hard although never seemed hurried courteous and friendly I would go back again ( we live 100... More

What a HUGE disappointment - having heard GREAT things about this restaurant we took visiting friends from the UK here for lunch; there were only TWO things left on the starter menu on offer, the staff were surly and slow, they brought the wrong wine and refused to take it back and the steaks we ordered weren't cooked as we...

We popped in with no reservation and got a seat on the front overlooking the beach which was beautiful. Food was delicious. Services was great. Will definitely return.

Visited with family who live locally, without booking a table. Examined the 21 Euro lunch menu and spoke to the charming hostess who conducted us to a table with an excellent view of the sea, it was a little windy for us to sit on the patio but a lot did. The three course menu du jour became extended by... More

I am surprisingly stunned by a negative reveiw that the La Jabotiere received just recently. I was there last month on business, my second time around and I have found the restuarant to be extremely pleasant, appropriately priced and the service to be above and beyond.
