We set off early for a day at the beach. Note to self and others: Reserve a spot at the Grande Motte beaches on the weekend. We rocked up to HappiBeach with no luck. So we popped in and out of other establishments along the way. Full. Full. Full. Full. Hoping to not have to turn back home, we took... More

A large and nice beach house with good DJ in the evening. Nice fingers food. The best is that they have a private parking 200m away as it is impossible to park all along the road. Polite and efficient staff not so common.

We happened upon this beach club style restaurant on our first day at Grande Motte, and we were not disappointed. We were two adults, one senior and two young teenagers - and there was nothing really on the menu for them, so they just had fries. We had caesar and nicoise salads . all very good but at EUR 16-18... More

Went here last night with friends, very busy, very friendly waitresses. The fish was OK, but I had the duck breast, which started raw, with uncooked skin, and did not improve much when sent back, The evening finished with a group of heavies, forcefully ejecting two men, who were carried screaming and shouting through the tables! Over priced. I don't... More

Imagine parking can be a bit of a lottery in peak times. We were OK quiet time. Friendly welcome shown to front row seats comfy seating friendly service. Had Caesar salad and Mediterranean salad plus slimming chips and 3 drinks. Food is plain but adequate if a bit on top side for pricing. However you are on the beach. It... More

Both times going to the beach here, 2013 and 2015, we have called in here for a drink, and relax, in the comfortable surroundings of this restaurant. The bar sitting area has comfortable seating, with bamboo screening. Very nice gin and tonic, or glass of rose. They do lots of cocktails - and snacks. We haven't yet seen or experienced... More

Spent the day there. We booked in advance a besoin lounge. Free and dedicated parking provided which is a must at this time of the year. Good service and great experience. Food and drinks are good too.

The four of us went to the Paillote Bambou last Friday for lunch time. It is located on the beach and has its own private car park 2 minutes’ walk away further down the road. The all-white refined interior opened on the sea works very well ! We first had a cocktail at the bar before going to our table.... More

Got there in the afternoon to enjoy the beach and have a light bite. We ordered some tapas-like food that looked good on the menu but the food was poorly executed. Maybe the main restaurant is better, cannot say. The Cocktail bar look really good but did not try.
