Went there for business dinner. Great fusion food and you're right by the beach so the location is great. Probably only suitable for adults in the evening but family too but only during the day. Interior decor is great full of driftwood/beach hut feel with modern moody strip lights etc. It's definitely suitable for couples too. The only problem you... More

This place was recommended to us by the person whose place we are renting - and overall this was a good recommendation. The restaurant is at the back of a hotel that backs onto the beach. A very nice setting. They offer a €36 set menu with a decent choice....However with extras (drinks) it does become more pricy than other... More

Had lunch there with my wife after a long walk along the beach, went for the fish plat du jour which was absolutely delicious. The service started of a bit surly but warmed up fairly quickly. Had a lovely table outside facing the sea. Definitely worth the visit if you are in the area.

This was not our first time at The J but this was for sure the last one ! We ordered Oysters and discovered in our plate dead mollusks without a single drop of water, no taste nothing at all !!! Fresh food, fresh fish is essential, why would you open Oysters far in advance on a Sunday evening when the... More

Small Resturant on the beach. Excellent French food. I dined here with local business partners. Excellent service, very friendly staff who really looked after us. Highly recommend the restaurant. I had Foie Gras, Sea Bass, and finished with a large chocolate mousse and expresso.

Stopped for lunch on a beautiful sunny day. Came across this restaurant and from the outside didn't look all that as a hotel as well. Walked into a dark entrance which opened to a wonderful indoor and outside eating area. Was really busy but they managed to find us a outside table. Chose the plate de jour of Camenbert, fries...

This was some of the best casual dining experiences we've found in France. We both had the 2 course plat de jour and were very impressed. All dishes were generously proportioned, well presented and provided a delicious mix of light, fresh flavours. We would definitely return.

We dine several times per Month in lots of places and countries. But the rude behavior was a real atmosphere killer. We politely asked at 11:15 if we could eat something but the reply was not kind at all. She said at noon, but no menu was given upfront. At noon we asked to have a meal but we were... More
