Loved this place. We ate early midweek so it was quiet and we had loads of attention from numerous waiting staff. Really friendly especially on the front desk. I thought the restaurant layout might be a bit naff but actually I thought it worked well and was actually pretty stylish. My tuna dish... read more

Wow, what is wrong with the many people say this is a great place with great food? Having been in la baule 5 times it was one of the places we hadn't tried and as we overslept a afternoon nap it was too late to go to "Le restaurant" as planned so decided to give this a try.... Friendly staff... More

went to dinner twice at this restaurant in 6 days. The first time the staff were excellent even providing a menu in English. Both our meals were very nice, the service fine and with those thoughts we'd return later in the week. We did and what a disappointment. Foolishly we took an outside table on offer where the smokers are.... More

We've been dining at La Villa ever since it opened in La Baule, and go at least twice when we stay and it's always consistently excellent. It's a lovely restaurant inside and has a nice seated outside area as well. The service is always very friendly, warm, polite but always professional, but it's the food one goes for and we've...

Had booked a table but it wasn't ready when we arrived. Not long to wait but it was all a bit chaotic. The food was just average - I had the sea bass but the accompaniments were tasteless. Had a much better meal the following night at La Croisette which was also better value for money

This is a wonderful restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was out of this world and the wines were very good. The desserts were absolutely amazing. Highly recommended!

I have been there on a family trip, with my family members telling me that the place was amazing. I had a full meal there, and it is hard to determine whether it was amazing or just average. The oysters were great, as great as you could expect from a close to the sea restaurant. Other great surprise, the Pepper... More

My colleague and I decided on this place, among a host of other restaurants nearby, because it seemed like this was the place to be. We chose wisely. We were seated outside at what I think was the only remaining table, a great vantage point for people watching on the avenue. The service was friendly albeit a bit slow (which... More
