Our hotel ( Hotel Claude ) booked us a table on the balcony overlooking "Orange Square"... fabulous place for supper Nancy and the team do a great job. We started with shrimp in garlic olive oil. , outstanding . Next we chose the rack of lamb and the confit of duck in filo pastry with jus. Both main courses were delicious and the accompanying vegetables fresh and tasty. To finish what was described as a tart tatin which was more an apple crumble but with cinnamon and it was great.
Try and book one of only two tables on the balcony but whatever you do book to enjoy the food and atmosphere here.

After a lot of years on the coast, at last a visit here.
Tradisional Spanish twist on the food, started with Lagostions ala «pil-pil» and my next was Sea Bass.
Excellent fish, but a I was missing the good combinations one can make out of such food. At least there was options not taken, but I hope for my next visit.
As wine we did choose Spanish white Alborigno from the North East.
Friendly service and smiling faces.
Price; a bit over the top!

We have quite an experience in Mediterranean food and have tried different types of fish in our life. At our dinner we were served not fresh and smelly turbot. Instead of apologies stuff started making excuses and saying that possibly we didn’t like the sauce or the style of cooking. However, it clearly tasted bad and out of date. We were fairly upset because the dinner was pricey and totally not worth it.

I came back again following my visit last year. I booked the balcony again - and although inside is nice - it's a must. The service and the food and wonderful. Both my wife and I agree this probably the best dining experience I've had - overlooking the Orange square. Can't recommend enough.

Visited on Wednesday 4th April. What a wonderful resteraunt! Unsure where to go for dinner we looked on trip advisor whilst ralaxig in the sun. Based on reviews we decided we wanted to book. We managed to get through on the phone and reserve a table to our surprise. WHAT a wonderful meal! The langoustines to start were incredible and service was faultless. I was feeling unwell due to sunstroke so we had to cut our night short and staff were so lovely! The next day when we returned to orange square the waitress caught our eye from the balcony and seemed to ask if I was ok wish was so lovely. Wonderful they remember us after one short visit! Will definitely visiting again!
