Tucked away in a quiet lane close to the seafront, this good neighbourhood restaurant with rooms has been entertaining both locals and residents alike for many years.
Although describing itself as Italian, the menu offers a broader canvas including many classical influences from across the Channel and simply-cooked local seafood much to the fore.
Expect to find the likes of 'Linguine with Pesto'; 'Seared Scallops with Langoustine Jus'; 'Mousseline of Sole and Crab with Basil'; and 'Medallion of Honey Duck with Marinated Peppers' among the starters.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Fillets of Brill with a Pernod and Ginger Beurre Blanc'; 'Rack of Lamb aux Herbes de Provence' and Fillet of Beef with a White Wine and Rosemary Sauce'.
In warm weather, you can dine in their pretty walled garden.
Leave room for desserts such as 'Coffee Crème Brulée'; 'Warm Apple Tart with Crème Chantilly' or in late summer 'Lavender Ice Cream with Spiced Figs'.
If you plan ahead, you can book in for the night, saving yourself the worry of the trip home. See our 'Places to Stay' section.
