Haven't been for a while but the last few times I went were very enjoyable. The ambience is brasserie style with a busy bar at the front of the restaurant. There are a few small tables at the front so you can watch passers-by and some more secluded larger tables at the back restaurant. The seafood is what you go for at Le Palais du Jardin. The most impressive is their Fruits de Mer platter which has all manner of shellfish - lobster, crabs, crevettes, prawns, crayfish, whelks, mussels, clams etc on ice served with bread and dips. Absolutely delicious. They also do a variety of hot and cold seafood dishes and the bar is very good. The service is attentive and unobtrusive. Only drawback is it is quite a pricey night out.
