I enjoyed the atmosphere and informality and great views, next to the sand and sea.Had moules frites and found the moules could have been plumper and somewhat fresher. Many customers so something must be right.

Visited this wonderful oddity on the recommendation of a local. Food fabulous. Menu not extensive but I will never forget the waiters in wellies, the tasty local sausage cooked over the open fire, and a large bowl of moules and frites. Unforgettable experience.

This is a fantastic place if you want to watch the sunset over the oyster beds of the western coast of the Cotentin Peninsular. The food is great, cheap and basic. Meat is cooked over the open wood fire, mussels and oysters are local and...More

I believe that they open in April, which is when we plan our next trip! Restricted days, I think Friday and weekends and public holidays until June to August when they are open every day and night.
