It was nice to have a good dinner there !! With a fantastic view on the sea...with a sunset which let me "un grand souvenir" de Trouville, we loved the "langoustines" and the "bulots", so fresh and wonderful ! Of course the french wine was on time for our "rendez-vous" !!

The location is great, right on the beach, with a beautiful view of the sunset. If you are interested in a place to sit and be ignored, this place would do nicely. We were interested in dining, though, and the service from our first waiter was so bad, it went beyond annoying and became farce. We were finally able to... More

The restaurant has an ideal location, however we never got as far as ordering any food. My family were shown to a table indoors, but after 15 minutes nobody had taken our order, not even for drinks, and a customer at the next table rather rudely suggested we should leave because our children were becoming noisy. Thankfully we left, and... More

Le Galatee has the big plus of being literally on the beach without the inconveniences usually associated with eating right next to the sand. Seafood is fine, service quite friendly. We repeated the lunching experience several times during our stay in Trouville.

Ate here with my brothers family on his birthday the children were catered for really well . The food was very tasty and plenty of choice at a reasonable price. Great view of the beach during a thunder storm including people trying to stay dry.

Great view, friendly help BUT food is not their specialty - bichots (mussels) were re heated - don't understand why since they only take a few minutes to steam - couldn't understand why they were shriveled up and quite petit till a poissonere on the port told us - have a drink and MOVE ON - seems the other reviews...

Slow, very slow, horrible seafood, unpleasant people, and very expensive. You got it, the is the place to avoid. But, in the morning, have a coffee on the beach, the location is gorgeous.

Couple of years ago this was our favoritest place in Trouville serving greate fresh seafood. That,s why we were quite surprised for easily booking à table in the middle of August. It was good warning that we unfortunately ignored... Only 30-40% of the tables were occupied and shortly we realized why. We had the worst dinner in Normandy for the... More

Great location : on the beach of Trouville Food is average, price in concordance with the location (i.e. a bit expensive) On a crowded day, the personnel was great for us (family of 5) but appeared to be a bit more rude with some other customers (foreigners / tourists ?)

Wonderful setting with an inviting menu. Excellent fresh seafood. The service is a bit dicey and less than attentive as they have the crowds.
