We went here because we were looking for a place that served pasta. Don't let yourself be deceived by how the place looks - the food is very very bad! It comes in nice plates but they should spend more time on the cooking instead. My carbonara was ice cold - I don't want to think about how long it... More

Very friendly service and reasonably priced. We are here twice. Fantastic niçoise salad and great thin-base pizzas which are generously loaded and very filling!

A bored waiter provides lousy service, and brings you mediocre, unremarkable food. The view is nice, but there are so many places along the sea, surely you can do better than café Soleil.

Although in a great spot, with a friendly waiter, the food was bad. My son ordered a pizza from the kids menu, but they said there was no pizza base left, despite it being advertised as a pizzeria. He then ordered a burger, which was completely raw in the middle. I know the French like their meat 'saignant', but it... More

Café Soleil is situated towards one end of the promenade overlooking the beach in La Grande-Motte. We stopped there for a drink mid morning. It is a pleasant location but the drinks are very expensive - more than average for cafes in the area.

We walked into this restaurant after alot of deliberation on where to go. When we were seated we asked to be moved to the window and were rudely told no. Then the waitress went and ate her dinner for 15 minutes before she even asked us for drinks orders. When we tried to get her attention, she ignored us so... More

Went to the restaurant in the evening time. Ordered fish (seiche) . The fish was very hard,- the rice witout salt, - the salad full of sand and the vegetables from a can. Very dissapointed. We will never go there again.
