The best meal we had in Arcachon

This was a very special place. We had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. My partner claims the sweetbread was the best he has ever had. And the desserts were amazing!

It has a small downstairs and upstairs seating approximately 30 people. The restaurant is charming with a effective blend of white, nautical blues and light grey hues enhanced by its subdued but effective lighting. The... More

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.

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.

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.

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.
