Good 4 courses

Nice place near the station. We had the 27 euro set menu 4 courses including a cheese course. Nice food, well presented. Wine about 30 euros. Nothing breathtaking but a good, tasty, well presented meal at a reasonable price.

We ate outdoors which was ok, but the setting is far from being quaint, romantic or pretty. All there is are parked cars on one side, and a path thru the terrace that splits the outdoor eating area from the entrance of the indoor section and used by pedestrians strolling this way and that way. Food was good but nothing... More

We called on the basis of previous reviews and the meal did not disappoint. We both had fish main courses. These were superbly cooked and served with an interesting blend of herbs and vegetables. We shared a plat gourmand for dessert and it was certainly enough for two of us. A well deserved excellent rating.

Nice looking restaurant with a pleasant ambience just off the main drag in Arcachon. We had had a delicious seafood platter followed by Cafe Gourmand. The latter was a work of art and felt a shame to spoil but spoil we did and it was delicious too. Service was friendly and very efficient; just as you would expect from a... More

Had lunch at this restaurant with my family. Near to Gare de Arcachon and with parking lots nearby. Set menu prices starts from 26 € while main course average around 20€. Food was nice with reasonable service standards. Recommended!

We visited this restaurant on the last night of our holiday and couldn't have chosen better. We chose the 26,50 Euro menu and the food was exceptional, from the seafood starters and the melon with ham and port, through the fish or steak main courses, the cheese and the desert,Each course was beautifully presented with little extras, such as a...

We visited this resturant for lunch again for the 3rd time and was not disappointed with the quantity of the food or the friendly professional service. 3 course meal with good choiice was heaven on the taste buds. While driving down from Bordeaux towards San Sabastion we really enjoy popping into Arcachon for a memorable fine dining experience. Lovely couple... More

We ate here on a Monday night and the place was full. Although busy the service was first class as was the food. We ate the set four course menu at 28euro and what a bargain! Each course was better than the next with the lamb just a bit special!! My partner had the steak which was very tender and... More

we had lunch there with our twin children. The place had been recommended by our hotel manager (*villa regina) and te recommendations was a good one. We chose the market menu for 14.50 which is the cheap lunch menu. It had three courses which were all lovely and well prepared. The fish soup was a particularly good starter - very... More
