Happen to walk in by coincidence. We took the fruit de mer that seem to be never ending. I had to refill the parking meter... Clams, langoustines, mussels , razor clams, crab, shrimps and I probably am forgetting something. The restaurant is on the harbour...More

White tableclothes and surroundings raised expectations, and the friendly but a bit slow staff and nice food more or less fulfilled those. Unfortunately one of us got sick of eating the seafood, but the other three in the party stayed well. Food tasted good, service...More
