“Excellent lunch, terrific value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We are in Les Sables on holiday, and last week I posted our thoughts on Vent D'Est, saying it was top notch and probably beats our previous favourite, Fleurs de Thym. Since then we've been to Fleurs twice - both times the food on the 18.80 lunch menu was simply outstanding. People at the next table had the 15 euro menu and raved about it too. We couldn't find fault with anything on both visits - the service, the food, the prices are all terrific and we thoroughly enjoyed both visits - hopefully we'll manage another visit before going home!.
Vent D'Est is very good indeed, but for us Fleurs de Thym just shades it as our favourite!

“Our Sable favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We have visited this resturant in Sables for over 5 years, this year we visited 6 times in our 3 weeks stay in the Vendee. The food is always very good quality and original ( we usually go for the cheapest menu of the day). Very busy at times and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Only slight drawback is the wine in not cheap (iti is good !!) but they do not do wine in carafe which would make it a little cheaper.
On our last visit this year, 21/09/12 at lunch we were treated to free champagne as a than you for our visits, a nice touch, they did not have to do it. We'll be there again in 2013.

“superb food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

My wife and I have been holidaying in Les Sables D'Olonne for years and Le Cabestan had become our favourite - however we had 2 meals here at the end of last summer that were excellent, so we went twice again last week, and sorry Cabestan but Fleurs de Thym is now our clear favourite! The surroundings are nice, the staff are good and the food on the 28,60 euro menu is simply superb! My personal favourites are the mixed seafood starter which includes 2 oysters, saltimbocca de veau, and then the crepe to finish off in style - and by the way, each dish is beautifully presented - real works of art!! Don't be put off is the place is almost full - the service and the attention to detail are still excellent - I'd recommend booking in advance as it always seems popular....
