Sitting beneath the old fort on a very warm, balmy evening the four of us enjoyed a very good supper. We shared a plate of local cured meats and cheese as a starter. Not sure I will ever be a fan of goat' s cheese!...More

We were seated at 7:30 pm in a virtually empty restaurant and ordered the fixed price 'Menu'. The starter arrived promptly but by 9:15, one hour and a quarter later there was still no sign of the main course. Some French diners nearby had had...More

We reserved the private "cave" located a few meters down the alley from the square. A cozy and romantic spot for two guests with ocean view. I had the "fish soup" for starter which was a bowl of a homogenous liquid tasting and smelling like...More

We just had the charcuteries and a dessert. Everything was fine. It felt a bit strange though that at eight o'clock we were still alone at the restaurant. The toilet was dirty and there was no soap.
