Lively beach eatery

Been coming here for 15 years. Good value, lively beach eatery. Not haute cuisine but doesn't pretend to be. Moules frites and a carafe of Charentais van de pays does it for me!

We wanted to book for 20h00, and were told that the restaurant was full, but we could have a table at the second sitting at 21h30; We booked two days in advance and arrived at 21h25. Many tables were free and other customers were on the point of leaving. Instead of being shown to one of the empty tables, we... More

I come in that restaurant for years and years. Of course it has nothing really special in term of cooking, do not expect to be over surprised by dishes but mussels are excellent and Lolo really takes care about where they come from according to the season and quality of the moment. All mussels are served with specific home made... More

We ate here on a number of occasions, it is accessed either directly from the beach or the street, a typical seaside restaurant/ pizzeria complete with mussels etc. Being located to the side of the beach meant really good views of the whole bay. The view on a summers evening is excellent. The menu is extensive and being a pizzeria,... More

Busy place with lots of guests. The atmosphere is a bit stressed. Food is OK. There are moules with many different flavorings, but they are all cooked in the same way and the sauce is then poured over. Quite many bad ones. Not expensive. OK but ot more.

Situated right on the edge of the beach this has a view that can't be bettered in St Palais. I had the Chez Lolo Mussels which were by far the best I'd had in a while - our table also had a pork dish, mixed seafood and a pizza along with soup to start. Everyone loved their food, prices were... More

We hadn't booked but managed a seat overlooking the sea - perfect.There were many french customers , always a good sign. The staff were very friendly, the service was quick and the mussels delic with a sharing bowl of... More

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.
