Critic's review

This is very much comfort food without being in portions that will sink you. The menu changes every day depending what’s fresh and in season. The herbs are from Mariclaire’s own garden. Expect a pasta dish, maybe a casserole, delicious fresh salads, an expertly done piece of meat, the freshest fish, and something sweet and satisfying to end off.

Very good list, mostly from this important wine area, that has been carefully chosen and well-priced.

Very good with that extra touch of making you feel right at home, while the owner often emerges from the kitchen to see how things are going.

This is a charming little cottage in the back streets of town, away from the hurly burly of the cliff front and all those tourists. The enclosed courtyard with its tinkling fountain and fresh flowers is just the place to be on a sweltering summer afternoon.

Pop in at the cute little book shop in front while your meal is being prepared (or afterwards) for some interesting reading. (GL, October 2012)
