We use this restaurant regularly when we are in the area. The views are spectacular! The seafood is always very good! The service is always good!

We wanted to have a late snack with our children at 6pm. At arrival there was a lot of broken glass on tbe path from the beach. We were denied a table with a good view because the staff would not want to remove the diner table sets and we would 'dirty a table' that was supposed to be reserved... More

I took a simple soda and a large coffee with milk and paid almost € 10,- 😳. It was not nice. It is not worth the vue at the Atlantic.

This restaurant has become a tipical "tourist trap" what a pity. The view is fantastic... certainly the most beatifull sunset of the area. But the food is not holding standard of the view... must been the worse service ever i had. Too bad... i fir sure will not come back

If you stop there be prepared for a long wait especially during the weekend. There are no reservation that can be made so you need to be patient. The brunch is worth the detour and the wait. Quality food for a moderate price in a country chic decor!

This has to be one of the most beautiful spots on this coast. The view is magnificent. We have eaten here several times over the years but it never fails to please. We went this time with our young grandchildren but they were warmly welcomed & their needs attended to, quickly. The food is of high quality. It is lovely... More

Parking is available and plentiful but it does get very busy and full so give yourself time to park at the adjacent car park. The view is beautiful, the food is excellent quality and the service is fine. A good safe option, but go armed with a translator or translation software as menus are not available in english. Worth a... More

We visited this restaurant on our first evening in Saint-Palais-sur-Mer. We asked for a table and was given one outside. We ordered drinks and then was asked if we would like to view the menu, we said yes. The member of staff was very nice and spoke good English. We viewed the menu but decided not to order, when we...

Haven't been here for a couple of years, they have changed the chef (I think)? We had a lovely meal, I had the best steak ever in France! Lovely to watch the setting sun as we ate our meal!

Great restaurant, perfect view over the sea with the most wonderful sunset. Booking for 16. Kids meal arrived to their horror, snails!! I had the duck breast, a little undercooked but when asked they cooked it more without issue. Great choux pastry for dessert.
