Pizza & mussels

Pizzas are nice and the setting overlooking the sea when the tide was in was great. Restaurant was very busy and service was very frantic, but in some ways this adds to the atmosphere of the restaurant. Prices are OK for Pizza

We decided to go to Chez Lolo as it was always busy which is always good sign and you have to book! We went for the mussels and I had the mariner ones and Marion had the brandy ones. With mussels it is just as much about the liqueur as it is with the mussels themselves as you have to... More

Book your table and get it overlooking the beach. At high tide the place is surrounded by sea which is lovely. The food is reasonably priced and the mussels are the best. Puddings fab too! We've been back several times and never disappointed.

We needed a late light lunch. We fancied something tasty but not a full French lunch! Chez Lolo was perfect. It was a warm, sunny but breezy day. The transparent sides to the restaurant were most welcome to keep the northerly wind out. I had a seafood assiette (like a mini fruits de mer) with a green and walnut side... More

We came here for lunch as we came to do the walk along the coastal path and this was situated at the start of the walk. The service was ok, and the food came quickly. We had the bolognaise pizza and curry mussels. There is an 11€ menu where you can have a main meal and ice cream or crepe... More

Great location over looking the beach, the rustic appearance belies the excellent quality of food, service and family recipe for crème brûlée!!! Well worth visiting for lunch!

Absolutely brilliant. Lolo is a superb ambassador for his Restaurant. The setting is unique right at the water's edge and the food is first class with the price being right too! The desserts are out of this world especialloy the crème brulee

Unpretentious beachside restaurant that looks nothing much from the outside. However, when full the atmosphere was great. The moules are wonderful. Try moules lolos own recipe. Best ever. In my view this is a great place to eat but you must book ad it's full for days in advance.
