this is the most beautiful hotel in La Baule and area ; just 20 yards from one of the largest sandbeaches in Europe (the largest ?) however the hotel is getting old and you can feel it ; one day it would need some extensive refurbishment ; no aircon but who cares except 2 weeks a year and our room...

I went to Castel Marie Louise for dinner last year and was overwhelmed by it. I booked it again this year and was so disappointed. The waiter told me he would create me something really special for starter that wasn't on the menu. When the starters came out, I was given the exact same thing as what my boyfriend ordered... More

We had an 8-course meal to entertain new business alliances. The service & quality of food really left everyone with a huge smile on their faces. The meal was considered a great success by everyone and it was considered to be well deserving of it's Michelin star.

This is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful small hotel at the end of beautiful long beach, one of the most amazing, restful, and unknown (to non-French) in Europe. We were guests at the hotel 5 years ago and ate often at the restaurant. Then, I am sure that I raved. The problem is not really the food, though it... More

Great in all respects, the meal was excellent, from the amuse bouche to the final petits fours. Special mention to the Miel de Briere starter. Service is very good and the setting is nice too. One of the best tables in La Baule.
