Good choice for fish and seafood

I visited this place with my family at the end of July and remained totally satisfied with what we had and particularly the fish and seafood meals that we tried (the meat dishes were not as good but it is a seafood place after all) ! The service was very good, the food was good value for money and... read more

As another summer comes to the end we are reflecting on the great meals and service we have had. Consistently high standard of fresh food all prepared in house. It seems a long time till next spring. Thank you from us and our extended family

The restaurant was advised by our hotel manager and we really appreciated it. The location is nice and animated, on a small nice walking street. The staff is really helpful and friendly, they recognised us when we came for the second time and gave us a reduction. The food was delicious, the portions are big. The value for money ratio...

We visited La Gogaille twice on a recent week in Villers. The place is always pretty busy and this reflects the amount of choice and quality of food available, The prix fixe is excellent value with about 8 choices per course and something to suit all. The service is exceptionally fast and well organised. If you are in a hurry... More

Early February. A Friday. Cold enough to snow. Most restaurants closed. 9 o'clock. Hungry tired kids. Early rise tomorrow so we need to eat and go to bed. The starters did come out right away but they were cold dishes so not a problem. I had fried squid rings and I guess I got lucky because they succulent. The other... More

Half the restraunts closed at the end of November so not much choice....Staff, keen to get you in, seated and ordered. Food arrived quickly. Unfortunately the house style seems to be to clear up as each person finishes, which led to disappearing bread and chips, and left one person eating with the rest of the table cleared. Worst service in... More

I visited this restaurant for lunch today with family (6 of us) and we were hoping for a pleasant and relaxing lunch. The food was fine (not the best, not the worst), but overpriced. Unfortunately, the service was dismal. We were rushed through our food and drinks (and its not even the tourist season, so the place was not full).... More

A small group of us were staying at a hotel in Blonville-Sur-Mer ( 2 miles down the road) for a 6-day break and discovered Villers on the first day and noted that the town had more amenities, bars, cafes restaurants, etc., than where we were staying. Where to choose to dine, well we looked around and this place was the... More

I am amazed when I read seemingly negative comments about La Gogaille. We come to Villers every year and always choose to start and end our holiday at this restaurant as it both starts and finishes our holiday perfectly every time. The menu is diverse with both meat and fish options-all of which are lovely. It's best to order from... More

We have eaten at the Gogaille at least three times a week for the past ten years( we spend 22 weeks a year in France) Always a warm welcome,good atmosphere and most importantly freshly prepared and reasonable priced food. With the addition of daily specials there is a wide choice to suit all tastes. Our family parties vary in size... More
