Excellent mussels and superb crepes for desert. Good seafood menu. Great service, welcoming and friendly and able to adjust to the needs of young children. First went to this restaurant 31 years ago and although it has changed hands many times it is still one to recommend. Lovely views of the sea from the panoramic windows while you are eating.

Came here for a family dinner, on the Sunday we needed a restaurant, not many choices were open in the area. The food was good, our expectations of French restaurants is high and these were not fully met, but that did not mean that it was not an enjoyable meal. We ordered off the set menus that represent good value,... More

Lovely friendly place. We've been here 4 times now and never had a bad meal. It can get a bit busy, but the wait for the meal is always minimal. You don't have to speak French as the waiter/esses can speak English and enjoy speaking it. We had gallettes for our meal this time. Well presented and lots of fillings.... More

We went to this restaurant for an early dinner, and had decent food with a nice view. The service however was dreadful. I ordered a glass of white wine, then a second one. The second one arrived and taste is different and definitely not as good. When I asked the waitress if it was the same one she looked at... More

We have visited Le Galet twice recently for Sunday lunch and have been impressed with the food, the service and the reasonable prices. Situated in a prime location overlooking the ocean the restaurant is able to offer dining either inside or outside with a great views out to sea. The menu is reasonably comprehensive, the fish and seafood in particular... More

Been here twice now as family live nearby and still not impressed. The location and the prices give you the impression this is going to be a top restaurant but it doesn't quite reach those standards. There is nothing bad about the food or service but it doesn't stand out and you could get as good or better food nearby... More

Came here three times for lunch and enjoyed all of it. I can thouroughly recommend the savoyade galette, crepes are excellent and the moule a la creme were wonderful. The view is superb and the young staff were always pleasant and attentive.

Have been here a few times and find it better than a lot of other restaurants near by, good views, good ambiance but poor service from owners who dont seem to smile at all to customers. Apart from that good food and a good place to go and eat!

Whilst staying in Bretignolls sur Mer my husband and I dined in this restaurant on four separate occasions it was always very busy and I would recommend booking in advance. The service was good and the food was excellent. Not perhaps the cheapest place to eat, but with beautiful sea views, good ambience and a bottle of French wine you... More
