A pleasent surprise was this ambitious restaurant. However, as other visitors comment here, having made a quick calculation on the weight and price of the fresh fish offered we realized we should tur to the menu. Good food, ambitious, but the menu should also include a couple of less costly alternatives.

We didn't have a la carte, just the lunchtime menu. Fried calamari for entre, just plain ordinary for either choices of a piece of fish or duck fillets (a bit too pink and rare) for the main course. Out of the 3 courses, the desert of panna cotta is the best out of this menu. The price is reasonable at €22. I would not go back!

Well what can we say, if you like quality over price you are at the right location. We took the Royal plate and enjoyed the food all the way. It was a real pleasure and all elements were perfect, no small portion either. We almost forgot the entree with the chefs starter which in fact was already worth the visit by itself.

The wine was also up to standard and matched the food quite well. The atmosphere and service in the restaurant is outstanding and we were treated like kings. Then the dessert, shown on a tray so who can refuse? It was a good end to a good diner. Then the unavoidable moment of payment comes, just draw your credit card, look the either way when the bill is presented and pay. You will notice later on that you paid a fortune, but hey you only live ones and it is worth it!!!

When the two of us arrived there were only four other people in the Resaurant, probably due to it being a French bank holiday evening and was quite everywhere.
The food was good and tasty and the service polite and helpful, but the price??
We both chose fish from the refrigerated display, which was also shown again at our table.
Fish was chosen by us both, Loup and Chappon. (Sea bream and Rascasse)
We didn't ask the price and were charged 43 and 49.50 euros for the fish. (total over £80)
Total bill with starters and Chablis 186 euros (£162) for this money it should be perfect and the
Food certainly hotter when served. A great location with nice food but don't buy the displayed
Fish without checking the price, or suffer the consequences, as we did !!

I love high quality "spéciales" oysters. If you do too, this is the place to go. Good service, good wine by the glass, and nice surroundings. I haven't tried anything else there, but something tells me I will soon...
