  • What a great place to grab a bite of seafood! I had the seafood soup 5/5, and the muscles in cream sauce, excellent!!
  • Conveniently located in the Jongleur port. Traditional french cuisine. Amazing view from the terrasse.
  • Excellent food at a good price. We ate lunchtime from the daily menu, the home made fish soup was excellent, as was the rest of the meal. Great location, lovely old building.
  • Excellent food (fish & seafood) and service with a nice view on the harbour!
  • The snails and shrimps as a starter weren't fresh, and the snails were still slimy and lacked seasoning. The mussels were overcooked and a lot of them were bad, they were still closed.. The creme brulee was fine. The service was nice, but that's about it.
