Stopped for lunch on a beautiful sunny October day after a walk along the 2km beach. Lovely terrace right on the beach with panoramic views out to the estuary. Good extensive menu and friendly service. Lovely moules and excellent value. Will definitely return.

Very hot day and after a walk on the beach needed a cooling drink. Stopped here as it looked very attractive, but the welcome left a lot to be desired. Ordered drinks and did say that we would not be eating as at that time we only wanted a drink. However we would have stayed to eat had we not... More

Very friendly staff and very patient with our limited French vocabulary! They were great with the kids and for whom they had a kids' menu. The service was really quick, the moules a la creme and the Parisienne Salad were fresh and full of flavour. The restaurant is right on the beach with large panoramic windows which added to the...

Just back from 2 weeks in this area and used this seafront / beach side restaurant 3 times it was so good. Despite being the very busy season the place was very well staffed so that service was excellent - we booked twice and the other time just turned up. We had 2 children with us but the kids' menu...

Situated on the beach its very easy to underestimate rhe Cafe des Bains - it looks like a cafe cum bar cum resto. BUT dine inside or on the terrace overlooking the beach. Its marvellous, very good service, beautiful food, friendly, helpful staff and a view to die for. We had a wonderful lunch in this somewhat under-rated restaurant. Font... More

Arrived at the end of service at 2 pm for lunch and the staff were just fab. Still very happy to take our order of moules and chips. The food was amazing- some of the best chips I've ever had. Lovely clean restaurant with excellent views and very convenient after a morning spent on the beach. Do visit if you... More

This is a well situated establishment on the main seafront promanade at St Georges de Didonne. You can sit in the shade and have a cold beer/coffee and watch the world go bye or have a modest evening meal. The service we found to be quick and the staff friendly.

Given the location the food and wine would be worth more than average for the price. However our visit today was completely ruined by the service. Every time our order should have been taken the waiter looked at us and then served someone else. We are unable to conclude other that this was deliberate based perhaps on our being English... More

This restaurant is right on the beach, with fabulous views. The food - Moules Charentais and filet of sea bass was really first class, the service was quick and cheerful.Not too expensive. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable lunch.
