We were recommended this place by the receptionist at our hotel who told us the chef has a Michelin background and it really lived up to expectations, great lunch, fantastic value and beautifully cooked.we went back for dinner which was good as well but more expensive-relatively, still great value. You just never find this quality of food in a holiday... More

Great food and service. My fish was cooked perfectly, and the beef dish my girlfriend had was one of her favourite dishes in while France.

We arrived without a reservation but were found a table with a little juggling - others were turned away only minutes later. The restaurant is quite small and most of the seats seem to be on the pavement so you have to take your chances if you're a non- smoker. There is a good price menu of the day but... More

You can not visit Arcachon and not visit this restaurant. The special menu changes every day and 3 cources for 22euro is not be missed. All food is freshly prepared and wonderfully presented. The guys in the restaurant are so friendly and have such a passion for the food they serve. Good wine list also and something there for every... More

We tried lots of restaurants in Arcachon. Most were not very good. This one, however, was great. Fun atmosphere and good food. There was a very limited selection and it is very French. It was freshly prepared and presented beautifully. Make a reservation. They are full every night in busy season, but you can make one the night before for... More

This was a great place for a very satisfying meal. The menu was very interesting with very stylish touches. The 22 euros three course meal was a good choice. There was even an amuse bouche. The usual local food (magret de canard, confit...) was presented imaginatively with unusual spicing and interesting combinations and there were some less common items, especially... More

I had a lunch last summer at this little charming place and I was really surprised by the quality of food. We had the 18 euros menu and from start to end it was a delicious experience. The service is very friendly and i would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a nice time in Arcachon

We went to this restaurant yesterday night. Everything was really fine, good and enjoyable. The food is creative and very well realized : this chef has a real talent ! The service is relaxed but nice and efficient. If we need to find a negative point, I would say that the nice ambiance was suddenly interrupted at the end of... More

Having ordered our meal, I joined a queue for the toilet behind a French lady. We waited and waited, but the occupant did not emerge. When the French lady asked if they had another toilet, the waiter said "no" and told us to sit down. It was a good job that neither of us was desperate. The food was very... More

Polite, attentive and helpful staff. Imaginative food that worked! Best food we have had during our stay so far - which may take some beating - impressed with ingrediants, for example, white beetroot & pale green raisins with the merlu. Take our advice - keep away from the "restaurants" facing the sea and go inland !
