Nice setting

The restaurant has a rustic decor that is in good keeping with it's beach setting. The food is acceptable though the selection is not as varied as it could be. This makes for a good casual night out. Beware the parking area around the hotel as several inebriated people seem to hang out there.

We were straying down the road at the Lux resort and wanted to get out for dinner, so we walked here. We were told there was a great view, but on a moonless night, we could hear the ocean and smell the ocean, but there was nothing to see. The oceanside seating is in "booths" with wicker-ish walls and cushions,... More

Right on the beach so the sunset view couldn't be better but otherwise a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the food was excellent, but some wasn't so great and for the price some of the portions were pretty small, whilst others were big. It wasn't predictable! The service was also pretty poor, we had to get up and... More

A good choice of fish and meat dishes, generous portions, sevice was very kind if a bit slow. Which is not a real problem with a such great view to the beach from a lovely hut!

location perfect! Food nice, service appalling! Non attentive, stressed and "didn't want to be there" attitude. Think it all stems from the owner/manager who looks miserable and fed up all the time and would rather drink and smoke at the bar rather than help his staff!! He doesn't care anyway, the location will always put bums on seats.....shame!!!

We ate here twice on Our October 2014 visit to Reunion. Staff were friendly. They were helpful with some of my family requiring gluten free meals (although that seemed to dramatically reduce the selection beyond what we are used to). A few more gluten free options would be nice, but the staff were knowledgeable and accommodating Everyone had fish the... More

Went here twice with my wife during our short stay in saint-gilles-les-bains. The location is absolutely perfect, right at the ocean front facing sunset. The service is friendly and quitd a few of the personnel speak English. During the weekend the place is packed, so be prepared to wait a bit. The food itself is worth it and includes a... More

We were staying at the LUX hotel and we wanted to get out more, so based on tripadvisor reviews we walked to this great place right on the beach for breakfast. Breakfast consisted of yoghurt, fruit, toast, cheese, bacon, eggs, honey, jam, juice and coffee. Service was ok, I think the staff were very busy preparing for lunch later that... More

We are in La Reunion for 3 weeks on business and La Bobine was recommended by local colleagues after we had been complaining about the sub standard restaurants we had be experiencing in Hermitage. What a fabulous venue. We arrived without a reservation so couldn't get one of the spectacular banquettes right on the beach, but the table we did... More
