Second visit and just as good

I am surprised by the mixed reviews of this place. Superb location and a great lunch for our family of five - children aged 13, 9 and 3. Great view overlooking the beach and out to sea. Food was fab - OK it is only moules frites and Pizza and a children's menu, but I thought it was a lovely... read more

This really is the best restaurant in the best location in St Palais - you can't beat it for an evening meal as the sun sets over the bay. Also, in season, some amazing live music acts.

We ate out here twice on a recent holiday and can recommend it. Food was excellent and of a very high standard. Its a very popular restaurant and at busy times will require you to book. But if you're in the area make a point of going you'll enjoy it.

We went there for dinner and chose moules frites .. Tasteless moules and the chips were like warm cardboard. The food here is usually good and it isn't a cheap restaurant ....could do better.

We love this restaurant and have eaten here many times in the summer months. The view is beautiful and we enjoy sitting on the terrace watching the world go by and families enjoying themselves on the beach. The food is good quality and we normally choose 'le plat du jour' which is normally local fish followed by a dessert. The... More

Not sure I was in the same restaurant as some of the reviewers as there were only two male waiters and the two male owners. View is fantastic and if you sit inside you still get the view and not the smokers smoke. The food was not the usual moules et frites and we were able to choose between menus.... More

We went to this restaurant as it had been recommended by people. The location is superb on the beach and you can watch the sun go down as you tuck into the gorgeous mussels, washed down by a lovely bottle of Muscadet. The ice creams on the dessert menu are huge and unresistable. If you are in St Palais do... More

Really good seafood here, service for dinner was good. We had drinks beforehand and the waiter was a bit grumpy, it was busy but when we asked for drinks he went into a bit of a rant! Regardless of that we had a great time!

We ate here with our two children. We booked in advance so we were able to secure a table by the seafront. It was ideal as we ate while our children ate and played on the beach- they were in their element! The seafood and fish was excellent. The children's menu was a bit limited but was ok. Overall a...

Great views over the bay and that is what I think that you are paying for as the food is just ok! We sat at the front and were surrounded by cigarette ends all over the floor and on the wall where we were eating not nice at all. They also had live music which was ok but to loud.... More
