We stopped by for a lunch and we were delighted with the fresh tasty faire. If you like classic French dishes (especially sea foods) then you'll love Le Cafe de la Plage. The muscles were especially good and it was a generous portion.

Decided to sit outside despite the wind as the setting was so lovely with the late sun. I had a set meal for €21 with choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 4 desserts. The fish soup was delicious, the fish dish of the day ,,hake with baby veg purée was really tasty and filling and the brioche with salted... More

An evening without children and a drive saw us arrive at this wonderful restaurant. We arrived at 6:20pm and was asked if we'd like an aperitif, it turned out we couldn't eat until 7pm so we sat with a bottle of wonderful wine and chose our meal. What we saw then really touched me. The whole staff sat together and... More

Lovely surroundings, couldn't fault the staff or the food. The mojito ice cream is a must! So long as your not driving! Actually visited Sept 14 but couldn't go back that far.

Made a visit to this restaurant as its in a great location looking out west over the beach/sea and a great view up the bay. We wasn't disappointed either, great view of the sun setting as we enjoyed our meal. We didn't have a reservation, but it was quite busy when we left so would probably wise to. Good selection...

Good food but poor service with the children fed before adults except for one which we had to ask for 3 times. A long wait for the adults food to arrive. Was not well organised and the waiters did not appear to know what they had to do. Spoke to the owner after the meal and she was not at... More

The views are very good. The menu is varied and interesting. The food is well prepared. The staff are friendly and efficient. Prices are OK. Definitely worth trying. We went for an evening meal. Were a little unsure before we entered the restaurant, was it really just a beach cafe? Once inside we were happy with the overall ambience. Good... More

Super little restaurant. Try the daily menu which is fanatstic value for money. Don't leave it too late to go though as it fills very quickly. All the staff are very accomadating as long as you give their language a try.

We've been eating here for the past 7 years. A wonderful place to watch the sun set from the terrasse. The food is simple and fresh and almost always nicely cooked. We've always found the service friendly and welcoming (although we miss the bald guy who left a year ago) . Would highly recommend it after a long walk on... More
