We had a good time at Bay Café. The menu was good for a seaside restaurant with good prices. Portion size was ok. The fries were ok but for me not the best home made french fries. I had better at other restaurant in France.

Just stopped by for a drink and a snack. The waitress (very nice) said they make home made fries and she was right. They were excellent! Real potatoes taste and great portion size.

Lunchtime does not need that much to be a great experience. Half a bottle or dry rose, a salad Nicoise, and a salad de chevre chaud, great staff, beach location and sunshine. Welcome to the Bay Cafe.
