I'd never seen anything like this! The Tiki, a bar/restaurant/brewery, is right on the beach, and is a great place for a drink, a snack, or a leisurely meal by the sea. In addition, the prices are really affordable: for only 5.90 you can have a bowl of mussels and for 2 euros more, a good steak! : D In short, an absolute must!
The Quai Quest is on the seafront of Royan. The staff are very friendly and the menu was very comprehensive and appetizing. In this restaurant you can eat sandwiches, paninis, ice cream, etc. The decor is nice and quite cheap, although not gourmet.
I think at first glance, La Muse Gueule is a very original name. This site is at the end of Royan's maritime promenade. A very original, and good atmosphere, where you won't be disappointed! I enjoyed fried shrimp for 13.50, and an exquisite tiramisu for 5.50.
Le Carrelet is a seafood restaurant that's really quite nice, offering ice cream and different mussel specialties: roquefort, carbonara, Royan ... I love this little restaurant. If you like mussels, don't miss it!
A nice place, where you'll feel great. The chef is very friendly, and happy to approach customers at the end of each service. They have theme nights every Thursday night, and the prices are good in comparison with other places. Be sure to book in advance, as it's very popular!
La Plage is a great restaurant where you can enjoy a good meal by the sea, surrounded by a multitude of restaurants. The menu is very tempting: I enjoyed the seafood and fish dishes. It has air conditioning.
If every trip that you make becomes a culinary experience, you should visit the Jabotier Royan restaurant. The traditional flavor of Poitou-Charentes has the finest seafood on the menu in this funny and charming French bistro. Being on the Atlantic coast, the most popular dish is fish accompanied by vegetables. Like the food, the service is very good and the atmosphere could not be nicer!
