The Effet-Mer, directly on the waterfront...


…With the sand in your toes…The Effet-Mer restaurant is located directly on the Travers beach in the seaside resort of La Grande Motte. A vast teak-decked terrace awaits visitors for lunch, dinner and the legendary Sunday morning brunch. 

La Grande Motte boasts some of the finest beachfronts in the Languedoc-Roussillon, mile upon mile of clean, sandy beach, with attentive lifeguards and great facilities to make your visit as pleasant as possible. La Grande Motte has even been awarded a Blue Flag Award by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), with the backing of the French Ministry of the Environment. So kick off your flip-flops and feel the sand between your toes without a care in the world …
Once on the beach, the effects of the surrounds are immediate; this is an exclusive, fun destination - totally unique and a breath of fresh air. The Effet-Mer is effectively the private beach at La Grande Motte catering for private parties, concerts, lunch with friends, or simply a day’s relaxation….anything is possible. But more importantly, the beach is the perfect location offering unrestricted views out to sea, and a truly breathtaking panorama. So if it’s a stroll on the beach and a dip in the sea you fancy, before relaxing for a well- arned rest on a lounger, an attendant will show you to your seat, and remain on hand for refreshments.The beach has excellent facilities…just the ticket for a day’s lounging. And if it’s a cheeky cocktail at the bar you’re after, there is bound to be something to float your boat on the list, from old favourites, the latest additions or even ice cold smoothies; the barman caters for every eventuality. Lunch gazing out to sea? The chef specialises in Mediterranean dishes with a distinctive Tuscan twist, using only local ingredients. Fish, Mediterranean vegetables, fresh fruits and all the flavours of the region harnessed in the dishes. And if you are looking for a night out with friends, the staff at the Effet-Mer are at your disposal to create an unforgettable evening, so enjoy not only the exclusive setting, but also seamless service. 

Evening entertainment at the Effet- Mer extends to concerts, DJ sets, and artistic performances, and is always lively and lasting well into the night. So savour the sun set in the fabulous surrounds, and watch the sun rise too, while you patiently hold out for a range of sweet 
and savoury brunch specials prepared by the Effet-Mer.
