This was a lovely place overlooking the sandy beach and cove. We had a sunny evening in mid-June and it was lovely to be able to sit outside. My 50th birthday happened to fall during a camping holiday in France and we picked this restaurant at random as we were passing for my birthday dinner, and we were glad we... More

No trip to this area would be complete for us without a meal (or two) at Nausicaa. Pass by Chez Bob and keep walking. Its smart, overlooking the beach, open all day - you can dine or snack while keeping an eye on your things on the beach. Its pizzas are ok, and steaks can be a little iffy (cooking... More

Not enough words to say how near perfect this location is .. I always make a point of driving to St Palais enroute to the Gironde and Wine Region and if there is a better place to relax keep it to yourself.... Good menus all day long ....

We ate there with family for whom it was their first meal in France. They loved it! The food was excellent; the staff efficient, helpful and friendly and the location by the beach is superb.

Revisited after several years, and for family meal. Superb location especially if weather warm enough to eat out, and for sunset over bay. Started well with good cocktails but sadly went downhill. Limited choice on menu for a venue in such a location. Mussels and chips probably most popular, but 50% of mine remained closed after cooking. Service friendly but... More

We ate here twice with a table overlooking the beach and the sunsets. Good location with food to match. Service was very good and the price reasonable.

This restaurant is situated on the boulevard right next to the beach in St Palais and so gives excellent views out over the sea. The food is very good and the daily "plate de jour" at lunchtime is excellent value for money.

Perfect setting right on the beach. Great value lunch served with a smile. Moules and Frites in a French seaside town- parfait! We will be back
