Description: A unique view over La Baule bay Les Fils a Maman have settled on one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. The restaurant has a fantastic view over La Baule bay and is ideally situated between Avenue du General de Gaulle (main street of the town) and the Casino Barriere, at the starting point of Benoit beach, 15min walk from the train station. With our feet in the sand and our eyes in the blue, we are very close to many sailing and beach clubs. Situated by the beach embankment, very appreciated in summer for long walks, you will be at the perfect place to watch the fireworks on the 14th of July and on the 15th of August, or to take part in one of the famous sport competitions of La Baule. At Les Fils a Maman you have the choice between many options : in the cool or in the hot inside the restaurant depending on the season, under the sun or in the shadow on the terrace, lying on a sun bed or inside sitting at the bar. Sit back and relax, get comfortable, order a nice and cool cocktail, let the sound of the waves drown you in wishful thinking...

A homely hipster style restaurant right on the beach. We both opted for the Moules Frites and were rewarded with the best example of this classic dish we've ever tasted. Lots of locals in attendance - draw your own conclusions!

Sitting on the beach this little place was buzzing. Having been turned away from one a few metres away we chose here because it was close to the hotel. Good service and decent food at standard La Baule prices (ie high for what you get). Food and servie and location as good as that at the Hermitages Eden restaurant without having to pay the Eden premium. Decent and honest and worth a visit.

We have stopped by this restaurant during our Sunday afternoon Orléans trip. Their de oration is original with children and school souvenirs. We also had a good chat with servers. Unfortunately the food is quite unoriginal and fish and steak were just plain and quite unseasoned. I have also found it a little pricey for what it is. I may come back but please add some spices and herbs in your plates.

We "splurged" at this place to have the whole monty: Lounge chairs, umbrella and drinks on the beach, plus lunch from the restaurant (places at the beach are cheaper if you eat there). You can also just have lunch and take some drinks in their "free" deck chairs if available.

The good: The place has a nice feel to it and it was nice to have "full service" and your little private place at the beach. The food was also generally good - the fish was simple, very down to earth. I enjoyed the burger, which was ordered rare and arrived rare, which is always a good sign. Especially with burgers, many restaurants ask how you want it done, but few deliver. Le Fils a Maman did.

The only gripe we had was that the service was slow at times. The staff was nice and helpful, but it was a bit difficult getting a waiters attention between courses. Also, ordering some drinks from the beach chairs could take quite a while.

All in all an enjoyable experience.

A great place with extensive menus, good food and lively atmosphere. We liked it so much we returned a second night which we never do. Probably would have gone for third but wasn't staying that long
