Good place to be very close to the beach, nice music but a little bit loud. Food is good, not amazing for the price I found expensive... Finally, service was very pleasant.

The place has a lovely look and like all the paillotes (temporary beach restaurant/bar) its a very nice place to spend the evening (or day). Like the other paillotes, it's not great value for money and service can be peremptory, especially when they're busy. So...More

Very friendly service, delicious deserts to enjoy as you're laying on the beach with a great cocktail. Good value for money.

Although the beach there is really nice (in general), the food & service is not worth a visit. The salad was completely taste-free, the asparagus was of very low quality, and the service unfriendly. Effet-Mer looks nice from outside, but that's it. High prices for...More

As I am not from the area i thought it would be great to check out the private beaches around Montpelier, Effet Mer was by far the superior of the beaches. Lovely fresh food, good service and an all ready cosy ambiance.
