It was ok.

Went for supper one evening on the advice of our hotel. All in all it was not bad but there is better to be found. To be fair, I had the mixed fresh seafood platter and the one I had the day before at the marketplace was so much better it may have spoiled it for me. Me wife had... read more

Had lovely dinner - the seafood and steak were well cooked. Service was attentive, polite and friendly. The atmosphere for mid week was good. A little pricier than some other places in Arcachon but you did not feel this was not unreasonable. Would definitely go back

The best 'plateau de fruit de mer' in a typical 'Parisian' brasserie. Not cheap but good quality. Also notified in the Michelin Guide and Gault & Milau.

This restaurant is known to be 'the place to go in Arcachon'. We were not disappointed by the food (although portions could have been more generous) but by the table we had: facing the toilets. So ask for a table inside the restaurant! The food was ok and to the expected quality. A pity we had to leave without desserts... More

Came in for a hurried meal as we were pressed for time, and were told oysters and a half bottle of white wine wouldn't take long. We did have to wait a while anyway. The food itself was good. We ordered three half-dozen oysters, and although they were pricier than we'd expected, they were not bad. There was one piece... More

We've eaten at Chez Yvette on several occasions over the years and, as usual, the experience this time was up to standard. It's not the best restaurant in the town, and the staff experience can be very mixed, but the food and wines are usually dependable. This year was as good as others, with a very nice waitress. It's one... More

Ive had Fruits de Mer in Boulogne, La Rochelle, Marseilles but this was to die for. Starting with a dozen oysters, then Lobster and Langostine with a nice white Burgundy - sorry Vins de Bordeaux this was an excellent meal. We were served by a charming lady who was both efficient and knowledgeable. But dont miss the dessert even if... More

I ate a whole crab and it made me sick for 3 days. The crab apparently comes from Brittany. My family also ate other seafood and were not sick. It was Easter Sunday and a special trip with my family while we were visiting France from London and Canada. I was unable to enjoy subsequent activities with them.
