We've been going to this "paillotte" (beach restaurant) for the last 8 years. We have never been disappointed by the top quality food. We usually have a family outing to l'Effet Mer on a Sunday, for their buffet (all you can eat). We went last Sunday and had a fantastic meal, taking our time and great pleasure in returning to...

Very friendly service, delicious deserts to enjoy as you're laying on the beach with a great cocktail. Good value for money.

Although the beach there is really nice (in general), the food & service is not worth a visit. The salad was completely taste-free, the asparagus was of very low quality, and the service unfriendly. Effet-Mer looks nice from outside, but that's it. High prices for low quality of food...

As I am not from the area i thought it would be great to check out the private beaches around Montpelier, Effet Mer was by far the superior of the beaches. Lovely fresh food, good service and an all ready cosy ambiance.

Our 2nd time to visit this restaurant on the beach. We were very surprised to see so many bad reviews. We had a great evening starting with a very friendly welcome and the entrance and from cocktail barlady. Cool lounge music while sipping cocktails on the beach. Good food and pleasant service for our group of 6. Only negative point... More
