My husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a special meal on our last night. Having read reviews of the restaurant and staying just down the street we thought it looked like a good bet. We were not disappointed and had an exceptional meal. The attention to detail is superb and the food was so much better than we... More

We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary lunch during our stay with a good friend who recommended this delightful restaurant in Les Sables d’Olonne. Delicious and beautifully presented courses and friendly attentive service from people who are passionate about their food. A little gem. The pictures say it all. Merci!

In the hustle a bustle of such a big resort it was great to find this restaurant. All the staff were attentive and the owner able to give a quality feel to all that was done from talking through the menu , bringing food to the table and recommending wine for our meal. We really enjoyed our evening and will... More

We had booked in advance having selected this restaurant from the Michelin Guide (no star but this should hopefully one day be forthcoming!). The lady who showed us to our table and took our order could not have been more amiable and professional. We asked for a glass of the local rosé wine before we ordered a bottle of the... More

Walked up and down the local quay and spotted this restaurant one afternoon. Booked for the same evening which is just as well, the place was full and they must have turned away 10 or so people in the time that we ate there. The reason is simple, good quality fresh food served with French panache. Nothing immensely fancy, but... More

We visited Le Clipper on 15th September with a reservation as it was full the night before. We were not disappointed as the food was first class and the service superb – great service without rushing us! We ate at 7 restaurants in all in Les Sables and this was the best meal we had! We had the set menu... More

We had checked out some restaurants online and in the Michelin Guide and decided to try the Clipper. So, on our first evening in Les Sables we strolled past, liked what we saw and booked the last table for 8.30. Then went two doors down to the Havana for a pre-dinner drink - a good cocktail. The restaurant was full... More

Last night was a special occasion for my wife and I and we wanted somewhere really good to eat. We chose Le Clipper for two reasons. It had good write ups in the Michelin Guide and Trip Advisor, and it looked good when I went to inspect it. Le Clipper is run by the owner/chef and his wife, and during... More

I went for dinner 2 days ago and received a very friendly welcome and, the place being empty because l was a bit early, l could sit on the terrace along the railing. Not willing to take an aperitif, l ordered a whole bottle of red Sancerre (33€) to drink through my 3 course dinner. To keep me waiting l... More
