Great service, English spoken, great food. Good burgers and linguini & palourde. Excellent local rosé. Toilet facilities not fantastic, recommend public toilets at beach 5meters away.

I loved this restaurant and we ate there a few times while staying in the port in Bandol. Sebastian the waiter was gorgeous and attended to us every day with a smile and made us feel like royalty. The food was above average for Bandol, and every dish was tasty except for the mussels mouniere which was a bit salty.... More

The location is beautiful, over the water at Renecros Beach, and the service was fine. The worst mussels I have ever had, they looked as though they had been sitting under a heat lamp and the sauce looked like muddy water with a few sliced shallots thrown in. The chips were okay but nothing to write home about. My husband's... More

It is always a mistake in a restaurant to make a mistake and instead of rectifying it, compound the error. So in the case of La Chipote last Sunday when my meal was ready and that of my partner wasn't, instead of realising the problem and starting again, the staff decided to put mine to keep warm. Unfortunately baked Camembert... More

We found this place by accident after walking along the beach and spotting what looked like a nice beach bar with a veranda- there were no signs or menus before going up the steps from the beach into the place. Although it looked like your average beach bar once we sat and read the menu we realised it was not.... More

Another beach restaurant at the Renecros beach. La chipote is one storey up from the beach but still on the beach. Ive been there several times and they always serve good and fresh food, nice atmospere. La chipote is a very busy place during summer months and some staff tends to be slightly arrogant when it becomes too busy.

It takes a lot of courage to call this snack bar a restaurant, but alas, that is the level of most of restaurants in the midi. I was served a brochette with two - 2 - pieces of salmon and two - 2 - of something vaguely resembling tomatoes. Motto :" you'll come here once and we don't give a... More
