Went here after stopping at Orient Beach. Were just going to have a drink but decided after seeing the menu decided to have lunch. Very friendly staff and good food. Another beautiful beach. Would go again.

My review is for the entire resort, not just the restaurant. There is a protected bay with instruction for many water sports, a clean beach with chair and umbrella rentals, and a nice little restaurant. Consider this option for family days at the beach.

Ate twice this week and enjoyed our casual meals with a gorgeous ocean view. Good service on the beach and in the restaurant with a simple reasonably priced menu

We always grab a bite to eat each year when we visit Le Galion. Our first exposure to their service is from the french beach attendant who sets us up with two chairs and an umbrella. We always start a tab, order a few rum...More

When visiting Galion beach, enjoy the great service of Tropical Wave!! Relax on a beach bed under an umbrella, take a cold drink or enjoy a good sandwich or burger during your enjoyment of the relaxing Galion beach sea!!

This restaurant is literally right on Galion beach. Eat there in your swimsuit. The service is great. It might take a little longer to get your meal because each meal is made fresh right there on the grill. Wide selection of beer & alcohol. Very...More

After a morning of hiking, snorkeling & kayaking at Le Galion beach (what a gem!), we took a seat at one of the picnic tables at the Tropical Wave restaurant. Unlike nearby Orient Beach, Le Galion is free of jet-skiers, pounding music, trinket vendors and...More

This is everything you expect in a real beach restaurant: Right near the water's edge, tables on the white sand all under cover from the sun, friendly staff. We ate a lunch that was very reasonably priced. Choices: Tuna baguette (good), chicken baguette (beyond delicious),...More

Hi! Two questions: What is the best way to get to Le Galion Beach/Tropical Waves from the cruise ship sort and do you serve gluten-free options ? Thanks!

A rental car or taxi are probably your only options. I doubt that anything is specifically gluten free. However, the French use different flours than in America, less processed and not enriched.
