Food not as good as the view

Been here twice now as family live nearby and still not impressed. The location and the prices give you the impression this is going to be a top restaurant but it doesn't quite reach those standards. There is nothing bad about the food or service but it doesn't stand out and you could get as good... read more

We have visited Le Galet twice recently for Sunday lunch and have been impressed with the food, the service and the reasonable prices. Situated in a prime location overlooking the ocean the restaurant is able to offer dining either inside or outside with a great views out to sea. The menu is reasonably comprehensive, the fish and seafood in particular... More

Came here three times for lunch and enjoyed all of it. I can thouroughly recommend the savoyade galette, crepes are excellent and the moule a la creme were wonderful. The view is superb and the young staff were always pleasant and attentive.

Have been here a few times and find it better than a lot of other restaurants near by, good views, good ambiance but poor service from owners who dont seem to smile at all to customers. Apart from that good food and a good place to go and eat!

Whilst staying in Bretignolls sur Mer my husband and I dined in this restaurant on four separate occasions it was always very busy and I would recommend booking in advance. The service was good and the food was excellent. Not perhaps the cheapest place to eat, but with beautiful sea views, good ambience and a bottle of French wine you... More

Was recommended by locals. We had a very nice two-course meal at a reasonable price; friendly service, and sea views to boot. Drinks were a bit overpriced so perhaps avoid the aperitif if on a budget.

the location is to die for. on any given sunset the views are bliss. we have visited this restaurant for a number of years and they have tried to make it less formal. i think this is a step in the wrong direction. the food is good, no question but le Gallet was always rated as one of the top...

After having a pleasant meal in lovely surroundings I was very disappointed to be overcharged. The menu said the meal we had chosen was 14 euros 50 cents. We were charged 18 euros 90 cents.

Excellent Galettes, as you would expect. The seafood looked good too. Busy on a Friday evening, so I would recommend booking, only a little English spoken, but combined with my little bit of French we got by.
