You pay a little extra to sit on the seafront overlooking the pretty beach, but it's worth it. Service is brisk and efficient, but you're not rushed. Not for the first time, three of us went for lunch. Two shared a huge "Normandie" seafood platter €38 (crab, langoustines, crevettes, mussels, oysters, etc) while our non-seafood eating friend had a rather... More

We are 6 friends in weekend in the north. We had lunch at the restaurant Nausicaa. A very big disappointment. Mediocre food, greasy and tasteless. Deplorable service. Apart from our server who seemed to be the only one to work, many waiters and waitresses stood away to chat, taking care not to cross the eyes of customers who would ask... More

Make sure you book if you want a table right by the beach because this is a very popular restaurant, rightly so. Very good service. Good choices for everyone. Wines are recommended on the menu per group of dishes. The seafood and fish are excellent. Highly recommended.

Saint Palais is a beautiful resort - add to this a restaurant situated on the main promenade overlooking the beach and you have the perfect location. The service and food is excellent. Fresh oysters, mussels, bulots etc and good meat dishes. Overall a wonderful ambiance, good quality food and highly recommended.

Right on the beach front and offering cocktails and food, this quickly became one of our favourites during our holiday to the Atlantic coast. We visited three times in our 10 day stay in the area. The plat du jour for €15 is good value and nice food, the best meal I had was the platter of seafood and rice... More

Went late one evening for dinner and the place was packed and lively. Welcoming staff and we were served very quickly. My husband ordered pizza which was tasty but slightly greasy. I had one of the fish dishes - salmon and cod wrapped in filo pastry with potato and a beurre blanc sauce. Unfortunately when mine arrived and I cut... More

It was recommended to me and I recommend it to anyone looking for good food in a lovely setting. We had fresh seafood which was excellent. Loved it.

Our 5 year old got his steak haché with fries, which was one of the 2 kids plates - no, we didn't go for the chicken nuggets - they're always a disaster... The steak haché was tasteless, the vegs too - the fries, well - tasteless... Greek salad for starters, drowned in vinegar and a ton of corn nobs from... More

Ate a simple lunch here in the sun. Great service. Nice clean and shiny cutlery and crockery. Clean terrace (better than the scruffy Chez Bob further along). I had a chicken salad and if I wanted to be picky I'd have preferred the eggs to be soft boiled rather than bullets and the croutons should be homemade, they were little... More
