This is how to run a restaurant!

This is a restaurant that you must visit! The patrons really know how to look after their customers and it is clear that they take great pride in everything they serve. The fact they produce many of the ingredients themselves is quite evident as every dish was completely delicious. We dined here... read more

This was rated 4th out of 89 on Trip Advisor restaurants in La Baule so we were looking forward to our evening meal there - and we certainly weren't disappointed, the meal was excellent and very good value for money. We ate outside on the covered terrace and although it was early October, it was comfortably warm. Great food and... More

We walked the central streets of La Baule looking for a restaurant for tonight and nothing really stood out. We came back to our Chambre d'hote and started to use TripAdviser and reserved a table at Le Billot. As we arrived it turned out that it was one that we had rejected for not having sufficient seafood. We had a... More

Very small menu but excellent products and very welcoming management. Prices are very reasonable for la Baule and this quality. Limited number of clients accepted (under seating capacity) on purpose.

We visited the restaurant a mid-summer evening and were positively surprised by the staff's warm welcome. Cosy atmosphere in the terrace, nice food, lovely home-made yogurt, good red wine recommended by the house, friendly and effective service. The coffee was a bit mediocre, though - a small but important detail for improvement in future.

Booked in advance on line before we left the UK after checking this place out on Tripadvisor. The wonders of the web! We were not disappointed - we had a very good meal.

This is a great restaurant serving excellent food with service to match. Even out of season there were a healthy number of diners eating there (which is usually a good sign). I had one of the best cooked steaks I have had in recent times and they have a good and eclectic wine list with a wide variety of wines... More

Follwing Trip Advisors recommendation we visited Le Billot. The welcome was warm and friendly and the staff very helpful. We enjoyed an excellent meal from an interesting and innovative menu. The food was beautifully presented and we enjoyed a very pleasant evening there. The restaurant is not expensive and gives excellent value.

Because my husband can not work trip advisor we were unsure as to where we should eat on our trip to La Baule. This lovely restaurant was close to our hotel and at 7 ish still empty but we knew it was going to be fine with the lovely welcome and ambiance we encountered. All our choices were delicious especially... More
