We had a late breakfast there for two days. We very much enjoyed the food and drinks served (very good bread and croissants, fresh orange juice, fruit salad). There is a nice and cosy atmosphere. Owner and staff are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.

We had been promising ourselves a gorgeous meal at a beautiful romantic looking restaurant overlooking the sea but on the night it was fully booked!! Having been to Le Cafe de la Plage during the day, we headed there instead. It was busy with the waiting staff flying about from table to table but after a short wait we were... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst out bike riding. It was a Sunday afternoon and everywhere else was booked, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Beautiful setting right in front of the ocean and the food was lovely. My son and husband had lobster and the food was washed done with a lovely bottle of bubbles. A perfect... More

This should be the top spot in Sion but sadly it continually disappoints. The service is good but the food is average. Go for the view not for the culinary excellence. We've been twice and the food has been decidedly average both times!

With wonderful view of the sea in a quiet location, you can either sit outside on the generous patio area or else inside. On a hot day a gentle sea breeze is great, while waiting for the food to arrive We had another great meal here, fish soup for starter and then sardines with fresh new local potatoes , and... More

We stopped by for a lunch and we were delighted with the fresh tasty faire. If you like classic French dishes (especially sea foods) then you'll love Le Cafe de la Plage. The muscles were especially good and it was a generous portion.

Decided to sit outside despite the wind as the setting was so lovely with the late sun. I had a set meal for €21 with choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 4 desserts. The fish soup was delicious, the fish dish of the day ,,hake with baby veg purée was really tasty and filling and the brioche with salted... More

An evening without children and a drive saw us arrive at this wonderful restaurant. We arrived at 6:20pm and was asked if we'd like an aperitif, it turned out we couldn't eat until 7pm so we sat with a bottle of wonderful wine and chose our meal. What we saw then really touched me. The whole staff sat together and... More

Lovely surroundings, couldn't fault the staff or the food. The mojito ice cream is a must! So long as your not driving! Actually visited Sept 14 but couldn't go back that far.

Made a visit to this restaurant as its in a great location looking out west over the beach/sea and a great view up the bay. We wasn't disappointed either, great view of the sun setting as we enjoyed our meal. We didn't have a reservation, but it was quite busy when we left so would probably wise to. Good selection...
