“Yummy savoury creeps”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

The crepes here were very reasonable and delicious. Ice cream desserts were gorgeous also. No pizzas in here on Sunday only creeps but they are so nice.

“Simply fantastic!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

A simple unfussy menu, excellently presented food, friendly and highly efficient staff and a wonderful sea view makes this restaurant a winner. Great value too with dinner and drinks for five people for less than €100. Highly recommended.

“2 fantastic meals”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

LOVED this resto! Went for 1st time on bastille day as the place we planned to go was full and had a huge queue. This had a shorter one but we were seated within 10 mins. Best seafood pizza "pizza corsaire" I have ever had with scallops and mussels. Great value kids meals for €8. Lovely friendly staff. Went back again just a pity we discovered it at the end of the hol

“Great location shame about food”
Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

The service was good, prices not bad. The pizza was good but the salad disappointing as from the description it sounded quite exciting.

“Great service, not particularly great value.”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

First of all, the staff were excellent. From the moment we stepped across the threshold they bent over backwards to accommodate us and our two small children (3 and 20 months). The location was excellent, and the view over the sea and beach very good.

The only problem was the very average crepes/galettes and the prices.

I realise that Benodet is not cheap, but 40 Euros for four pancakes, two beers and an apple juice seemed a little steep, particularly as two days before we had twice the food and drink for half the price in Beg-Meil and the quality of the food there seemed better.

I don't want to be unfair - they gave us what we needed. Great service, and quick and easy food to keep small children happy ten seconds from the beach. It's just a shame they couldn't have either raised the quality to the point you thought "expensive, but worth it" or reduced the price to the point it seemed better value. Particularly for galettes for which the markup must be even higher than for pizzas.

Would I go there again? Certainly. But I would ration my visits.
