This restaurant has been in Arcachon for many years. They are known for their seafood which is consistantly good. It is centrally located in the center of town near the train station.

I came to that restaurant according to my boking. The kitchen was closed, they did not let me in, didn't care at all about my reservation. That was my birthsday, had to eat cold pizza on a gas station instead of having a dinner in a restaurant

It looks promising for a seafood restaurant that's not on the main boardwalk and with a reputation as a local favorite but the lobster (supposedly not frozen but cooked live) was not as promised and although everything else we had up to that point was good, it was a let down main course. I can't fault the staff, very good... More

This restaurant, renowned for its seafood, is a local institution. A family of oyster farmers has run it for some 40 years. Nautical setting and a lively atmosphere. My husband and I found it by accident as we were rather put off by the touristy restaurants located on the beach. When you first walk look immediately to the right and... More

We thought this looked a typical French style restaurant . Plumped for the set menu at 28 euros . This may not have been the best choice I feel. This restaurant will be etched on our minds for the price of the Armagnac we ordered . 2 glasses 40 euros!! Mon dieu! Had we bought the bottle??? We've eaten copious... More

Last year, a friend recommended we go to Chez Yvette which is both a fish store and restaurant. Instead, we ended up in nearby Cap Ferret for lunch. This year we made it. Of course, no meal is complete in Arcachon without oysters from the bay. Sitting on their platter of salt they were fresh, briny and delicious. But we... More

We loved it here, charming staff although not English speaking they served with a smile and the seafood was sublime. Authentic French restaurant and we went twice during our 5 days in Arcachon.

very nice location (since 1962) with excellent sea food. Our best restaurant experience in 2 years with at least 10 different restaurants in that area.

In one word - a complete disappointment. We chose this restaurant from the Michelin site and expected to see a tasty food and a perfect service but, instead, we were served like in a fast food place. The food was not tasty with lots of salt and oil, it lacked any originality. The wine was served warm and we were... More
