Wouldn't go back!

We've dined here before when staying in La Baule, but I'm afraid we won't be going again! The food is now very average and the service the same. It's not that cheap, compared to other restaurants, and I think is living on past laurels We both said our dishes were very nondescript, bland and... read more

Called just for a drink, sat on the front area, people watching. Fancied a pizza but couldn't eat at the table we were at. Decided to move to the restaurant area and ended up having a delicious 3 course meal. Might be a clever tactic to get you to spend more but it's a lovely restaurant and once inside, we... More

At the beginning this restaurant seems to us a nice place... But as soon as we enter on the terrace, the manager ignored us for a long time in the matter of fact that they had free tables. Once placed into the restaurant, 30min passed before been taken our order... And this is without any comparison to the eternity we... More

We ordered the 1kg steak which sounded impressive - & was! Did ask for medium - well done but came medium - rare which wasn't ideal & as there was such a language barrier it was easier to just not ask. The service was poor. The waiter in our area just kept forgetting about us and the rest of the... More

We ate here one nite only on the first evening in la baule. It was not a truly pleasant experience that a meal out on holiday should be. Staff bit young and of course little English so we were not destined to have great nite out. Food took long time coming and then they got it wrong anyway....so I waited... More

La Baule is one of those towns which, owing to the high end clientele it attracts, should have consistently high quality dining experiences to offer. My experience has been hit and miss in this regard however. La Croisette, with it's 2000's Cafe del Mar decor and soundtrack, was busy the evening i dined here and so I took that as... More

We've eaten here many times before and it just seems to keep getting weaker with each passing year. The pizzas are pretty good, but outside of that there's nothing special. The service is not good at all. Our table of 6 was ignored for quite some time and they never came back to check on us once our meal was... More

So this is probably my fifth visit to La Croisette over the last 7 years or so and it never fails to impress! The staff are extremely friendly and the food excellent! On occasion I have arrived without booking a table when it has been extremely busy but the staff just ask you to be patient and have a drink... More

Classic case of a restaurant that needs to try harder. The position in the Avenue de Gaulle will attract customers and clearly they feel they don't need to work too hard to impress. The serving staff are unfriendly and unwelcoming. The person who I think was the Head Waiter could hardly be bothered to even look at us as he... More

This is a very popular good-looking restaurant with an equally good-looking terrace. The food is imaginative and delicious, the lunch menu is good value. Unfortunately, some of the staff can be arrogant and unfriendly, which spoils an otherwise very pleasant dining experience. Also, some of the lounge-style seating is not terribly comfortable for sitting and eating.
