Bon diner

It was a good place to have dinner! We enjoyed it and service was good! We were a family of four and each of us enjoyed what they had

Very poor tourist trap of a cafe/restaurant in a beautiful area. The worst moules frites I've ever eaten. The frites were ice cold and dry, I think reheated already and the moules were the smallest I've ever ever seen! Totally over cooked, zero flavour, it's as though they were boiled dry in water, no flavour and served with no sauce.... More

We usually frequent most lunch times when staying in St Martin for moules which are fantastic. The staff are all very nice and look after you well. My husband likes the beer and the Ott is excellent!!

The food was nice, the wine was a little local gem. Staff were not really friendly nor smiling but we had a lovely time anyway. The restaurant was quiet and cosy. Clients seem really happy with the quality of the food.

At 11am in the sunny morning of an equinoxial spring tide, the whole town seemed to be down at the tideline finding delicacies to eat. We stopped here and ordered the moules and they were just wonderful. When I congratulated the waiter, he told me they had been freshly picked within the last hour. The place was bustling and very...

First night - looked very busy - sat more than half an hour waiting to be served before giving up and walking away. Tried again 2 nights later - managed to get served, but the food was very poor.

Very picturesque, with good service Le Belem was a great choice for lunch. Full but with tables turning over there was a majority French clientele. The menu Prix fixé was great and the Maigrette delicious.

We has a good meal here, not exceptional but very decent, for a fairly reasonable price given that this is Ile de Ré.

After wating 45 minutes to get our food, neighbor tables were faster to get served, the owner told us that nobody is perfect and that's our mistake we didn't claim earlier. We never got our food and left after paying our wine. So, I can only write about the level of service (unfortunately 0 doesn't exist)

The setting is percy on the dock, with a pleasant little plaza for outside seating. The food was fine, with a high note for the drinks: both the kids diabolos ( fruit syrup and lemonade, ideal for French summer vacations) and the local ile de Re wines which are both surprisingly good and reasonably priced. fish dishes were good, accompaniments...
