We dined at a table on the patio and enjoyed the slight evening breeze and the intimate ambience. There wasn’t much of a view, but the service and the prices were good. The main entrées ranged from 10 to 15€, and the food was exceptional. I ordered the veal escalope with cream and mushrooms (US$15), which was melt-in-your-mouth tender. My husband had the Reine pizza, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Had we been staying on the island longer, I would have had to return to try the fish soup that I heard another diner raving about.
The restaurant is located on the corner of Avenue du Lagoon and Rue de l’Escale. The phone number is 0590-29-05-68. You can order the pizzas to-go if you prefer. Le Fregate is closed on Saturdays.
