We decided to eat here as it seemed very popular. We had a two course lunch. Both portions were quite small and not particularly well cooked. Desserts were better. Nice location on the quayside but I wouldn't recommend.

Large menu, but we were all (4) disappointed with our food. Nothing wrong with it, just not particularly tasty or well presented - the impression was one of 'fast' fish food. Service a bit off-hand.

As this restaurant was very busy, and it was 20.30 we decided to join the diners. The food was ordinary, served on the cool side and by a waiter who obviously wanted to be somewhere else. I would not go back

Very nice roast sea bass! Staff very friendly and attentive. I marked this as average only because there are so many places of a similar fashion here! We enjoyed our meal, but we look forward to trying out other places too!

Very good food. Kitchen opens early in the evening, optimal for families with small children. Staff was very helpful and professional.

They served my main dish as my husband was having his entrée. This is frustrating! I tried to eat, the muscles were cold. It is true that they are facing the port and the spot is ok but the service and the quality of dishes can get much better to become average. I will not return to this place.

Recommended here by some local residents. Our scallop dish with tagilatelli was rather overcooked so that the scallops were a little rubbery. On the positive side it was nicely shady and had a very buzzy atmosphere.

This is a standard restaurant. It's charm is that it's on the quayside in the middle of St. Martin on the Ile de Ré. In midsummer, it is a place to start the day with breakfast; for the rest of the day it is a place to take shelter from the sun or the rain or the crowds. The staff... More
