We went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews, it looked dead on our first night so we went elsewhere, but I'm glad we went back! The food was great and the service acceptable. We had the €25 set menu and it was great.

Fabulous food, excellent value for money. Reservation essential as this restaurant is very popular. Le Menu offers a variety of dishes, presented beautifully and a food lovers treat.

This little restaurant is run by enthusiastic and imaginative young people. The excellent value menu changes daily and uses lovely ingredients perfectly cooked. A refreshing change from some stick-in-the-mud French restaurants. Reasonably priced wine list.

We ordered from the daily special and off the carte, and everything dish was delicious. oysters with vinegar jelly, fish (cabillaud for one and lotte for the other) were very good and creatively presented. My safran risotto was super. The assortments of local cheeses was super. A very good bottle of Sancerre. Servings were perfectly sized for us (small), and... More

Delicious take on local food with a fancy preparation yet the atmosphere is friendly and the staff super helpful and nice. A must go if you visit Arcachon and want to avoid the over-priced tourist places around.

We had the meal of our time in France here. The chef is obviously super talented, inventive and creative without being fussy or pretentious. I had one of the best entrees of my life here: white asparagus with a mushroom velote and house made blood sausages....not heavy, a light delicious appetizer. Great place great service.

Great little bistrot with indoor and outdoor seating. The staff are friendly and the food fresh and delicious. It is centrally located for the beach, shopping and the train station.

This review is based on the 40 EUR evening menu (plat - dessert). We picked this restaurant based on the previous reviews. The average rating is based on the overall experience. Au P'tit Ju is either a over-priced brasserie or a restaurant that could be improved from several angles. There is a lack of balance between the starters and the... More

During a short break at Arcachon we booked a table for two, based on the nice reviews on TripAdvisor. Even if the weather was a bit chilly, we chose to stay outside, which is normally the option offered to people without reservations. We took the 25€ menu, which looked as good as the 50€ one, only with less fancy ingredients... More
