“Fantastic beach side restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

In view of previous experiences of restaurants 'on the beach' (extortionate prices and very dodgy food) we didn't have high expectations of Maison Blanche but we were very pleasantly surprised. Great food - lovely barbecue meat cooked to order on the terrace by superb barbecue chef. Excellent cocktails, great views and friendly efficient service. Very good value and the view was an added bonus . There is also a very inviting pool for those evenings/days when you want a swim before or after your meal. It was so good we went back the next night.

“Great atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

A location to die for overlooking a small sandy bay with a great vibe. We both had bbq'd salmon steaks, and they were perfect ,eaten in the inside restaurant, but the drinks prior to dinner were taken outside by the pool, where the atmosphere was great. Mostly a local clientele added to the atmosphere.

“Very poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

This place does not know what it is.
There are loud dancing classes, a pool,a restaurant serving poorly cooked food.and later on the place turns into a nightclub!
Don't bother.

“Super view, Super service, Super supper!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Right on the beautiful beach at Vaux-sur-Mer this bistro is a cut above. The first clue that we were in for a memorable meal was walking past the huge wood fired grill on the patio. Our table was right next to a large window which gave us a panoramic view of the beach and the sunset. The menu was built around the aforementioned wood-fired grill, but also quite eclectic with a few Mexican and Morrocan influenced dishes. We started with some very good margaritas and then my husband and I both opted for the veal chop. These came with a jacket potato straight out of the wood fire, fantastic and we also got to choose another veg to go with it. The chop was meltingly good and with a slight smokiness from the grill. It was all so good we booked the same table for the next night. This time my husband had the guacamole as a starter and it was the best I have ever had outside the US of A. For mains it was a chicken, date and local potato tagine and a brochette of monk fish and serrano ham. Again, all delightful and cooked with care. This is a menu made by someone who really likes their food. Don't want to forget the service though. We arrived 15 minutes before they opened on the second night. The staff was all sat down having their dinner. They all smiled and waived and someone scurried over to get us our table and a drink so we could wait in comfort until they opened. Fabulous!
