The title says it all: Great location mediocre food. We were here for lunch. Service is so so. The cevice was good, the octopus stew not. The rose was overpriced.

La Gloriette combines beach, vistas, lunch and rhum vanilla. This great combination is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Food is great --- especially the exotic seafood salad. An assortment of appetizers is a good way to start with a bottle (or 2) of French rose wine. Three hours at lunch punctuated with vanilla rum locally made for an... More

If you're in the mood for good, inexpensive food with your feet in the sand, a trip to La Gloriette is necessary! The pizza was outstanding, the service was solid and the atmosphere is hard top top.

The atmosphere can't be beat. Laid back, feet in the sand, no need for shoes, picturesque view of the water. Then you have the food and realize this place is the total package. We were a group of 5 and EVERYONE loved their meal. Every bite was amazing. My favorites were the Lobster Casolette (sp) and the sweet mashed potatoes... More

Noticed that many of the photos from customers were NOT La Gloriette but were Au Corail...the attached dive shop restaurant next door.....oops. The space is close but La Gloriette has been here and used to occupy the total space 16 years ago. La Gloriette is under the cocoloba trees so that the tables allow the authentic feet-in-sand experience. We have... More

Nothing fancy at all, but very good pizzas with a wide selection, including white pizzas. Feet in the sand, by the sea with a breeze. Good deserts as well. The owner is unfortunately a bit rigid and not overly welcoming, but the location is fabulous and after a while she may spoil you with smile, if on a good day... More

La Gloriette came highly recommended but we found it a little disappointing. The food was ok but nothing special, the service likewise and the price was high for what it was. We didn't rate it but it's always busy so maybe we are in the minority.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch, right on the beach. The food was delicious, the atmosphere welcoming and friendly, facilities good and the beach paddling between courses great! Everything we ate was fresh, beautifully prepared and presented. The staff were super, helpful and attentive. All tables have shade and there is on site parking. Well worth seeking out for an intimate... More

We made the drive over to Grand Cul-de-Sac specifically to eat at La Gloriette, and we were not disappointed. Pretty view of the bay, and you can eat "inside" that has a sand floor but is protected from the wind, or outside under a couple of palapas or open tables. We sat inside because it was a little windy the... More
