    Lovely situation on the promenade facing the sea. Attentive staff and excellent choices on the menu from the plateau de fruits de mer to sweetbreads and cote de boeuf. Good sized portions meant there was no room for dessert

    The restaurant appeared as the top one to visit in town. We visited it for lunch. We ordered starter, main and dessert. The starter, the soup Which was not really a soup but a cream, it was like burnt and greasy. Not good. The main, baked fish, was not baked through. I sent it back but still was not cooked through. The dessert, profiteroles, the dough was hard as a rock and the ice cream was not good. The staff was not easy to attract their attention... And we payed too much for that bad food. The best: the chantilly of the dessert and the bread

    Great location, facing the beach and promenade. The food was good but both of my hot-courses were served on the warm side

    The food was good but the service was not so good and the price is too high for what you take.

    The sole was greasy and not cooked at all well. The potato halves were under cooked and the salad also was too greasy. In all a very expensive meal for a disappointing last night out in France before our return to Australia.

    We made our resevations at 14:00 hoping to miss the father's day rush at lunch time. In spite our reservations, our table was not ready and we were placed in a not so good spot on the Café de la Plage side. The Chez Pierre side is better and protected against the winds and had a better atmospher. The food and servings were good and the quality of the food was excellent.
