You come here for the ambiance and the music. The sun set to classic music was spectacular. The blankets to keep warm were a nice touch. The food was tasty, albeit a little expensive. If you are staying for the music, then the prices are justified. Had a most memorable evening. Un incontournable!

One the plus side they have one of the nicest terrace of all the island, nice set up to relax with a drink. The food is somewhat average and expensive. They serve tapas, you could expect to pay around 8-15$ for each and need 3 or 4 for a meal if you add to that some drink it could add... More

We came for dinner at about 7; the place was busy but not full. We found a table outside on the deck (there was no-one receiving or seating arriving guests), and then we waited at least 20 minutes before any server noticed us. In the end, I had to flag one down and request menus, and then it was quite... More

We came for the food but ended up staying for the sunset and outstanding view. Tapas were pretty good overall. Owners mingle with crowd and even plays violon. A good restaurant that represent the local produce very well. One downfall was one of the male server took our drink order and after 25 minutes of waiting, he told us he... More

The menu is entirely in French, but the staff was helpful in translating. I ordered the Ceviche, and it was delectable. Hubby ordered the carbonara. It was so fresh tasting. (although we are not sure what the meat was, as it wasn't traditional bacon, it was very tasty)

This spot had great reviews so we decided to try it out. It is an amazing location with great views over the water and the perfect spot to see the sun setting (as shown in their profile picture). It is kind of unique in the fact you check off your order on a piece of paper that the waitress collects.... More

This is a must visit restaurant on Iles de la Madeleine. Not only food and service are very good, the restaurant has a great location but the owners know how to treat guest in a very special way. Make sure you go there for dinner, enjoy the life music and a very special musical sunset treat! You will never forget... More

The owner greeted our group playing the violin! Very nice touch. Good and efficient service and excellent food even for a bus tour. Nice home-made gelato at the end. No complaint here whatsoever.
