great setting as you expect but food needs work. we ordered tempura prawns which were ok but had had better in many places. we tried the wok poulet dish which was totally fogettable - piles of tasteless noodles and chicken with no discernable flavour

Both times going to the beach here, 2013 and 2015, we have called in here for a drink, and relax, in the comfortable surroundings of this restaurant. The bar sitting area has comfortable seating, with bamboo screening. Very nice gin and tonic, or glass of rose. They do lots of cocktails - and snacks. We haven't yet seen or experienced... More

Spent the day there. We booked in advance a besoin lounge. Free and dedicated parking provided which is a must at this time of the year. Good service and great experience. Food and drinks are good too.

The four of us went to the Paillote Bambou last Friday for lunch time. It is located on the beach and has its own private car park 2 minutes’ walk away further down the road. The all-white refined interior opened on the sea works very well ! We first had a cocktail at the bar before going to our table.... More

Got there in the afternoon to enjoy the beach and have a light bite. We ordered some tapas-like food that looked good on the menu but the food was poorly executed. Maybe the main restaurant is better, cannot say. The Cocktail bar look really good but did not try.

This was a lovely beach bar but almost ruined by the attitude of one of the staff. We got there for a 10.30am booking and after the beach boy showed us to our bed we asked for an umbrella and a bottle of water. He went off and did not return. So after waiting for a while I went up... More

The food was very delicious, and the cocktails were great. Probably one of the nicer looking beach clubs along the beach stretch that has a great atmosphere and good music, but the staff don't seem very attentive - regardless of how busy it is. If you are a patient person, this is a highly recommendable beach club (if you want... More

We were here in July for dinner and it was great, food was lovely and the atmosphere is fun. Considering they build the beach bars on this stretch of beach between Grande Motte and Carnon from scratch for only a few months each year it's impressive what they have created here. During the day it's a trendy beach bar with... More

We were staying in Montpellier but this beach club in la Grande Motte was recommended tous. It is only about a twenty minute drive out of town but you are in a different world. La Bambou Paillote is a beach club on the western edge of the resort . It has private parking or you can park on the beach... More

Spend a day in this stylish beach club and enjoy the least crowded part of the La Grande Motte beach. Try the "Formule": a beach chair + big fresh salade + beverage for 22 Euro. Great deal! Young and hip service included (not very responsive, but friendly)
