The concierge recommended Le Sand, and at first glance we weren't so sure about the place, though it is right on the beach and it is all open air along the beachfront. It is obviously French and the food was excellent, the service is friendly. We went there twice!

Atmosphere was great, food was amazing and dessert was out of this world. Did not like the kids running around the bar, jumping on furniture and kicking balls all around patrons while having drinks though.

The unassuming car entrance belies this gem of a restaurant on the beach. This is on the French side of the island and provided an outstanding evening experience. the home made bread with olive oil, cold pea soup (very fresh, subtle flavours), foie gras, 4 types of seafood, delicate rice, flavourful desserts, best meal of the trio. Thank you Lea... More

Nice seating, affordable drinks, you can even enjoy happy hour. I didn't put 5* because I didn't agree with the dinner price-quality ratio. Overall very nice venue!

We ended up at Le Sand by accident. We asked cab driver to take us to Long Bay but she insisted on Dreams Beach (Nettle Bay). We accepted her advice and WOW what a place!

Drove by a few times during the week and didn't even know it was there. What a spectacular place. They should have better signage on the street. We first came during day time for drinks and apps. Came a day later at night for drinks and dinner. Can't beat the views either day or night. It met all the requirements... More

Offering a set menu, which was reasonable priced as long as you didn't just want one course! The three courses on offer provided a goaod choice, with extra courses included, making five courses in total. Service was good with minimal waiting between courses.
