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

Perfect for vegetarians! They prepared a delicious off menu option for me. We ate like kings in a beautiful restaurant on the beach for a reasonable price. We loved it so much we went back the next week !!

What's not to love @ La Bobine: blue lagoon, sandy beach, private cosy shaded tables very discreet just above the beach with extensive views blending into the back drop with wooden stick decor sourced from Madsgascar & woven into the fabric of this beach front venue plus exemplary food & friendly service !

Great location, right by the beach, lovely setting and relaxed atmosphere. Great food, cooked freshly and with great care. Fish dishes in particular are delicious. Friendly staff who looked after us brilliantly. During our 2 weeks holiday we went there 3 times, we were never disappointed and it was by far our favourite restaurant in the area. Really worthwhile to... More

As with other reviewers, I cannot fault the location of this restaurant - right on the beach, with great views over the lagoon and sunset. However ... I have to say that the food was utterly disappointing. I had a steak that was fatty and riddled with gristle - my partner had a local carri dish that was equally as... More
