I ate at this restaurant for lunch recently. The location is easy-to-find, on the sea-front just before the point where the port buildings end and the road opens out with a beach on one side and seaside shops opposite. It is almost opposite the Nausicaa recreation centre.
On arrival, the restaurant has a rather dark aspect, with furnishings, light fittings and an overall style which appears to belong in the 1960s or 1970s. The style of service also harks back to another generation.
Fittingly, therefore the style of cooking is unashamedly old-school French, with plenty of rich creamy sauces accompanying most of the dishes. Even the “amuse-bouche” openers came with creamy sauces.
The highlight of the meal for me was an unusual fish called “légine”, a very light and clear fish from the southern seas. Alas, nowadays, one tends to think that an accompanying sauce that is creamy and heavily flavoured rather detracts from the delicacy of the central ingredient.
Overall, this is not a Michelin-starred restaurant that I would necessarily recommend to friends, but it is, in its own old-fashioned way, a place of high-quality cooking nonetheless.
