Despite the poor reviews we thought a pizza would be nice so my wife and I decided to risk it and hope we would be one of the lucky ones and get decent food and service. We weren't! We were shown to a table and given menus. We chose what we wanted but were then ignored. Other customers who came in after us had their tables layed and orders taken. We continued to be ignored. After 15 minutes of this and seeing others who arrived after us being served we walked out.
If you are not French keep away from this place, if you are French you should still keep away.
My French is too basic to be able to tell the sour faced woman running the place what I thought of her and the restaurant.
If there is a vowel in the month don't eat here.

L'Aiguille Creuse is a very popular place. The restaurant is located near one of the parking lots and beach/walking path to the cliffs. Our food was decent and our service acceptable as they had only a few servers for a full house of guests. Unfortunately the view is spoiled by the parking lot.

We nearly didn't eat here having read the previous reviews but we were weary and hungry and the smell from the pizza oven won us over! So glad we did as we can leave nothing but a glowing review. Service was fast and friendly, the food and drinks arrived almost immediately and the meals were of a very good standard with proper homemade pizza, a good children's menu and fresh crepes. We ate outside but the inside looked good too and the much maligned toilets were clean and tidy in our experience.

This restaurant is beyond words for the bad quality of food. Unfortunately everything was closed at the time that we wanted to eat lunch (16:30) and we ended up to this place. Two plates of seafood pasta that we had, arrived in 6 minutes meaning that were not freshly cooked as they were not from the taste of them and also with just some frozen seafood in terrible tasting sauce. The highlight is the price of 30€ for two small portions of bad frozen reheated pasta. AVOID!!!!

We have eaten here before, and I strongly recommend the wood cooked pizzas as well as the galettes. The terrace looks onto a tatty carpark, and the council have now added a motorbike stop just the other side of the glass. The service is polite but not the fastest, but you are getting fresh cooked decent sized pizzas. The kids had big icecream desserts that they really enjoyed. The restaurant takes ticket restaurant, but ONLY €16 worth per meal.
