The nicest terrasse on the Islands, right on La Grave, the 'Latin Quarter' here. A renowned fish'n'chip, lots of tapas to share with your party, and a warm welcome from owners Isabelle and François. François is a musician, so you may expect a serenade at any time of the day... And by the evening, there's always a duet. At sunset, each day: a moment on the violincello on the terrasse... Magic!

Working in harmony with nature, we take advantage of the exceptional yeast produced by fruits grown in salty sea air. The juice is slowly cold-fermented to
bring out the finest flavours and aromas of our apples and honey. We then process our salt-misted fruits to create four elixirs: “l'Enchanteur de pommes,” “le Chouchen,” “l'Escarbille” and “le Pomeloi” (with an
apple in the bottle).
À l'abri de la Tempête believes in maximum use of local raw materials in the creation of its beers. We started by using locally malted barley, then moved on to harvesting and using fresh flowers, marine algae and herbs. We use locally-grown ingredients to brew our full-flavoured, distinctive beers.
Guided tours, boutique and beer pub on place.

Passionate of mariculture, Mr Christian Vigneau start fishing as he was fourteen years old. He own it business La Moule du large inc, since more than ten years. The site offshore to farm his mussels and oysters is at seven kilometres from Cap-aux-Meules wharf.
