Doesn't surprise me since it's right next to the beach. The food is not great, Mussels were dry and not tasty at all accompanied with French fries that didn't have any taste. The only plus at this place is the service (friendly and efficient people)

Was pretty cold outside on the beach but the sun was shining so we put our names on the list. Almost an hour went by before the drinks arrived to us on the boardwalk where you wait. Once we sat each table was right on top of the other which was sort of uncomfortable. Everyone smokes cigarettes in the covered... More

I would expect better and fresher from a restaurant the the sea spray hits you while sitting in it. Service could be nicer and you dont have to make the guests wait just to make them feel the place is busy.

Great location at the beach. The seafood is fresh and nice presented. The oysters are lovely. The winelist is ok for being in France. Recomendable.

Bar de la Mer serves classics in a good location - the Deauville promenade. The service was quick and kind, the food - pretty average and also pretty expensive. We paid 25 euro for a lobster Caesar salad that had two pieces of lobster in it. The half lobster was maybe a half but of s tiny representative of the... More

I entered my pin number without realising it was in £ not Euro the payment was paid to a casino. My bank HSBC classed it as cash and charged me interest. If you use this Restaurant pay cash it was very expensive without the extra interest

Usually, when you come to Deauville, you expect higher than usual prices in other places in Normandy. But this place offers plates that are far too small to satisfy the average stomach. Having high price is ok, but at least, please provide enough food for your customer to fill full after having a lunch at your place...

The location right on the beach was enough for us to enjoy our lunch. Unlike other reviews, we received everything we ordered extremely quickly. Moreover the salmon salad was huge, truly enough for 2 people. It was loaded with fresh salmon and many minuscule shrimp. Our bread and water were replenished as frequently as needed. Being in the sunshine was... More

We went there for a brunch & ordered a full breakfast menu called "Tonic" at 15 euros including eggs with bacon, croissants, hot drink & orange juice, according to their description. The drinks were ok, but what we got for eating was just 2 poor fried eggs with bread, butter & jam. I asked the waiter if they forgot the... More

Stopped here at around 10am for a very expensive coffee - €15 for 3 coffees that were the worst we have had in France. If you have a tasteless coffee here (cappuccino) then do complain as we would have done if we had not had an embarrassed teenager with us.
