We have eaten here before and were happy with our meals but today I have to say that the service was under such pressure our relaxing lunch was a disappointment. The food and wine were fine, the view of the estuary and lighthouse excellent - if only the service had been better organised. I'm sorry as I rarely give negative... More

We visit this restaurant often when we are in St Palais because the staff are always friendly (especially one tall man who is there!) the food is always good and we think very good value for money. There is a terrace overlooking the Corduan lighthouse or you can sit inside and look through the window!

I have eaten at all the restaurants overlooking the sea here and this one has got to be the best. The 23e menu represents excellent value for money. Very friendly staff. Will definitely be back again.

We have eaten here many times and have always found the food and service absolutely excellent, most times we have been it has been very busy but that has in no way affected the quality of our food or the service, I'm sure we will continue to enjoy many more lunches & evenings there.

Fantastic setting in the ex Novotel restaurant. The food was amazing. Every single dish. I had the Duck which was great and a Gazpacho soup to start. The Moules looked incredible. I havent eaten out anywhere else in Royan. Just this place.

We had lunch at Le Cordouan today and can happily recommend it. We were seated on the terrace where there were great views across the estuary and shaded from the sun. Our aperitifs and wine were chilled, our seafood entrees delicious and of good quality. For mains we had filet de bar and brochette de noix de st jacques which... More

First visit in April 14, then quite a few times throughout the year . On our return this year April 2015 it was the place we picked for our first evening out on Sunday 5th.
