Can certainly recommend this splendid restaurante: casual in appearance but great service and the cheff deserves a gold medal. Arrived 4 pm from Spain flight and was thus 5 pm body very late lunch time. Very enjoyable 90 minutes visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed lunchtime moules frites which we could have eaten inside or out under heated awning. Returned for an evening supper and again enjoyed excellent oysters followed by burger and chips. Service fast and friendly. Fellow diners mix of ages from young children, families and couples. All this a stones throw from the beach.

Saint-Palais-sur-Mer is a beautiful seaside town near Royan, on the west coast of France. It has the feeling of an Edwardian come Belle Epoque resort with a stunning bay and curious style houses. Chez Bob is a restaurant on the Esplanade - or Rue Des Bains - with tables outside overlooking the sea. Moules of course are a favourite; their... More

It would be hard to better the siting of this sea-front restaurant, at the head of a glittering bay, within inches of a fine sandy beach. With a broad choice of well-cooked and prepared dishes at affordable prices, cheerful staff and prompt service, there is nothing not to like about this splendid eatery. My unadventurous tastes are well known, but... More

I had my birthday dinner here. A brilliant location on the beachfront. We ended up going twice and weren't disappointed. The food was very good and the service was really great.

Staying with our friends, who live in Fontaine Chandelay, took us to see this beautiful cove where we stopped and had Moules Marinierre ( sorry about the spelling), a dish I love, served with Frites, which is a common plat de Jour, was fantastic, in the sunshine overlooking the sandy cove. Should you be in this area, be sure to... More

First visit I had 'Bob's Burger' I ordered sweet potato fries with it, an excellent choice! Second visit 10 days later I had the Caesar Salad, again with sweet potato fries. Both were just lovely. I never eat dessert, however, having seen the gorgeous ones going by I just couldn't resist, I wasn't disappointed . The staff are so friendly... More
