We visited this restaurant following a review in a Vendee magazine. It was extraordinary. It was raining heavily, with a strong wind. We were seated at a table directly facing the ocean, with waves thundering in onto the rather ominous rocks beneath. A breathtaking sight. Round 1 .. 10 points! The menus .. and there were a number, were reasonably... More

We've been here before, but this time, the sea was more sparkly, the food more savoury, the cheeses more pungent, the staff warmer and more efficient...it seems impossible. Cayola is without question one of my favourite restaurants in the world. This is not a stuffy fine restaurant, even thought the food is delightful and the rhythm of the service is... More

i reserved last Saturday for Sunday lunch, and when we arrived we got a private dinning room, with a private terrasse and a wonderful view on the coast, good start. And then every detail was perfect, we choose the tester menu with wines, an excellent choice, we got the right wine for every meal, not a well known medium quality... More

For the 10 years we have been coming to Sables, we promised ourselves that we would go here and yesterday we finally did! It was great fun and pretty much as good as we thought although the head waiter was a bit humourless- he of the sliver bunch of grapes on his shirt.. Our main waiter was lovely and did... More

The culinaristic edge of Vendée holiday. Had degustation menu with matched wines with my 8 yo son enjoying menu enfant. Service, view and food all excellent, no wonder the mention on red book. We enjoyed especially the visuality and funny details during the lunch. Worth to travel within region and book in advance. Recommended wines creative and second choice always... More

This restaurant is pure class, starting with the view just beautiful and with an interior to match. We had the taster menu with wines at €115 and it was excellent. The chef here is very talented and his presentation is stunning. We are glad we did it for a one off. The only negative put we couldn't mark them down... More

Had a lovely meal here in May, was a bit worried about the potential language barrier but it worked out ok. Food was amazing and the view was incredible.

We stopped at the nearby La Littoral campsite and decided to have a blowout meal. One of the best meals I've ever had. Lovely surroundings, excellent service and wonderful food. We had a drink on the terrace as the sun was going down accompanied by a bon amuse, then lead into the restaurant to our table for another interim course... More

Lovely decor and excellent location. Had an aperitif on the balcony overlooking the sea as the sun was setting. On moving in to the main restaurant the setting was still excellent with crisp white linen on the tables and the best of service from the staff. The homemade bread was lovely and crisp and was constantly been replaced during the... More
