Disappointing service

I am from reunion and seeing the level of service in this restaurant made me feel really bad. The waitress was very bad and did not even speak to me and the rest of my family using the French formal way "Vous". She seemed to be bored and was almost annoyed by us.

Went to La Bobine with my partner as we were stating at the Recife Hotel probably a 30mins walk away. This restaurant has a superb location right on the beaches edge. We attended during the evening and after we arrived the place started to get busier after 8:30pm. The location i to die for - you practically have waves brushing... More

You cannot deny, this has to be one of the best positioned restaurants in the world. Cute cabanas and cosy seating areas offer amazing views to the beach. The food is good, but the service is slow and unresponsive, although friendly when it comes your way. Despite the average service, I'm still a repeat customer because That View.

Great place to have some drinks with friends, enjoying good dishes or appetizers. Also with a romantic environment for a nice evening. Lovely view of the beach.

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
