We stopped here for a couple of drinks while walking the beach in La Baule... really nice little beach restaurant. Although there are several similar places along the beach - we thought this one looked nicest... they also had pizza which was pretty good too! Service was good and the scenery was hard to beat!

We had a carbonara pasta and it was great value, once again friendly, efficient staff, beach restaurant and no frills. Perfect end to a day having had a gourmet lunch. The wine, a Province Rose was very palatable and we finished with coffees, shame no biscuits served with coffee. All in all an okay meal to round off the day.

If I could put 0 I would do it! Worst service ever (and believe me I am French so quite used to having several types of service)... They refused to serve me and my daughter for drinks at 3 pm by 30 degrees Celsius arguing that they were only serving drinks + food until 4 pm!!! And the food (been... More

Great place on the beachfront, lovely food and amazing scenery. I would love to go back to La Baule, and if I did I would definitely be going back to this restaurant.

This was good and simple food on the beach, a Nordique salad and 4 saisons pizza shared. Throw in a bottle of Sancerre for €25 and you have a great meal for under €60 for two. After a lot of French restaurants this was small break that tasted really good! The added bonus of friendly service made our night here.

We really enjoyed our meal at Ipanema. The staff were great and the location is absolutely stunning being right on the beach in the centre of La Boule. The view allows you to forget for a moment that you've landed in the sixties concrete monstrosity that is the Pornichet / La Baule strip. It served great pizzas and my entrecôte... More

A good and friendly pizza place on the beach. Owner and waiters are helpful and pleasant. The pizzas are good and there is a large selection of desserts particularly ice creams. A good place with children, reasonably priced.
