Le Rive Gauche was recommended by the hostess at our chamber d'hote and we loved it! The atmosphere, seafood and wine was wonderful! Service was very attentive and sitting out along the port was very romantic.

We enjoyed the setting and fantastic view sat outside la rive gauche. We were very excited, so felt slightly let down, as we had been recommended to visit this restaurant. We think we may have made poor choices as the service was fantastic, and we enjoyed the bread and wine, however my red mullet was fairly tasteless and came with a hot potato salad, which can only have been made with a uht milk white sauce. My husbands fish soup was very good and his main was very substantial but a little bland.

Doelan is a gorgeous port, and Rive Gauche is one of two restaurants on the left-hand side of the harbour. There is a terrace separated from the restaurant itself by a quiet road, and it was here where we ate, overlooking the moored boats in the harbour and the lighthouse on the other side of the river. To guarantee one of the tables on the terrace I would recommend booking in advance, as this is really where one can savour the atmosphere.

Rive Gauche specialises in locally-caught fish and seafood and it is as tasty and fresh as any we have tasted anywhere in the world. The bar (sea bass) filet was €16 and the six sardines were only €10.50. The grilled fish was beautifully charred on the outside but still very moist inside. Also available for €16 were swordfish (espadon), lobster (homard) and sea bream .(dorade). Fish were served with either fries or a baked potato with chive cream liberally poured on top, and a simple salad. There's nothing fancy about the food, it's just exceptionally fresh and well cooked.

The desserts were mainly ice cream sundaes, which were very large and fun.

The restaurant terrace was packed both nights we ate there, with a mixture of couples and large family groups. The atmosphere was as wonderful as the food.

Arrived in Doelan on a beautiful sunny evening and were delighted to be able to sit out on the terrace at Rive Gauche, looking over the water and sampling some of the best fish we have ever tasted! We had delicious grilled sea bass and red mullet. Also the creme brulee was the best I have ever tasted. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone passing through the region.
