“Very good fresh fish and seafood”“landed in the harbour 50 feet away” – is the USP at this French family-run operation, where staff “keep the entente as cordiale as possible”. It’s been “a favourite for more than 10 years”, and “early booking is recommended”.

“French owners produce fish that is simply but superbly cooked” at this “popular (booking essential)” and “welcoming” little seafood specialist tucked away near the harbour. “Always a pleasure to eat there: must have had 50 dinners in the last five years and all were up to a very high standard”.

A “long-running favourite with fantastically fresh fish the order of the day, accompanied by smashing wine and great attention to detail”; the “understated, charming” venue also benefits from a “lovely French ambience”.

"One of those very special restaurants that never disappoints. French seafood at its very best with such a friendly welcome on arrival and freshest of ingredients prepared to perfection. I’d say faultless. How they do it after 20 years is quite an achievement. Poole is lucky to have such an amazingly good eatery."
