This directly at the habour located restaurant offers a school case to see highest Frech server training and well organized restaurant staff. The kitchen is well prepared and I had my mussles after ordering them within less than 3 min. The quality of the food is good and the ingredients fresh. The servers were friendly even though the restaurant was fully seated and were fulfilling extra wishes from guest immediatly. Reservation is recommended.

Really great lunch - one of biggest portions of moules I have ever had. 16 different sauces to choose from, only €11, great value. Loved it.

We were looking forward to our lunch here but all was not good.... The staff were pleasant and helpful, the atmosphere good, the view great but the food just did not live up to the rest. We had oysters and what turned out to be basic battered calamari to start, the oysters were fine if salty which benefitted from the shallot vinegar to cut the salt however, the calamari were indifferent and tasteless inside a very heavy batter. the spiced mayo dip was ok.
We followed this with individual choices of Moules frites, They advertise 17 recipes of moules but basically the moules are simply steamed and a sauce is poured on top without so much as a quick stir. I chose the coriander and lime recipe and there was a dollop of curdled creamy sauce atop the moules with bits of khaki herb, if this was the coriander it was either dried of had been pre-prepared so long ago that the only flavour left was of old cut grass. Not pleasant. On top of this the moules were tiny and whilst I appreciated this can be seasonal we had moules in St Emillion a couple of days prior to this and they were lovely and plump, soft and juicy. Later in the week we had mussels in Ouistreham which were also good.

The busiest restaurant on the harbour but we really could not work out why - all of them serve nice fairly simple food with very similar menus. The staff here were good & the drinks & food were nice & the prices ok - it did have a buzz, which was nice but this was down to it being packed I suppose. Nothing bad to say about it at all really - give it a go.

Great location next to the harbor - full after 12:30 in off-season.
Very friendly service, even quick enough when place is packed and child friendly. Surprising and helpful for us: they also spoke German.
The food was fresh and tasty. Oysters (4 different kinds) and mussels (17 different sauce options) recommended.other dishes and desert were great too incl. coffee.
Esp. considering the tourist location the place is exceptional!
