Went here after stopping at Orient Beach. Were just going to have a drink but decided after seeing the menu decided to have lunch. Very friendly staff and good food. Another beautiful beach. Would go again.

My review is for the entire resort, not just the restaurant. There is a protected bay with instruction for many water sports, a clean beach with chair and umbrella rentals, and a nice little restaurant. Consider this option for family days at the beach.

Ate twice this week and enjoyed our casual meals with a gorgeous ocean view. Good service on the beach and in the restaurant with a simple reasonably priced menu

We always grab a bite to eat each year when we visit Le Galion. Our first exposure to their service is from the french beach attendant who sets us up with two chairs and an umbrella. We always start a tab, order a few rum punches and around 1pm eat lunch at the bar protected from the sun. This year... More

I love this small restaurant in Le Galion Beach. We have been twice to the place and the food is great, healthy and tasty. Today we had a delicious tuna tartar, curry shrimps and red snapper at le papillon... perfect for parents while kids are in the calm beach, good prices, good service...

When visiting Galion beach, enjoy the great service of Tropical Wave!! Relax on a beach bed under an umbrella, take a cold drink or enjoy a good sandwich or burger during your enjoyment of the relaxing Galion beach sea!!

This restaurant is literally right on Galion beach. Eat there in your swimsuit. The service is great. It might take a little longer to get your meal because each meal is made fresh right there on the grill. Wide selection of beer & alcohol. Very relaxing great meal.

A fantastic place to visit. Great food, reasonably priced. Great menu, COLD beer and WIFI. Good service However Sunday is not a great day to visit. It is a public beach and on Sundays different large groups (3 - 4) are using the beach and having trunk size loud speakers and it looks (sound) like a contest for the loudest... More

After a morning of hiking, snorkeling & kayaking at Le Galion beach (what a gem!), we took a seat at one of the picnic tables at the Tropical Wave restaurant. Unlike nearby Orient Beach, Le Galion is free of jet-skiers, pounding music, trinket vendors and hordes of cruise-shippers. Tropical Wave is a mellow place for lunch. They offer an affordable...

This is everything you expect in a real beach restaurant: Right near the water's edge, tables on the white sand all under cover from the sun, friendly staff. We ate a lunch that was very reasonably priced. Choices: Tuna baguette (good), chicken baguette (beyond delicious), and a burger (very tasty), but would love to come back to try the fish... More
