The best place to eat on a Monday night!

Hard to find a Monday night restaurant out of season n France. We were lucky to find this. Friendly staff and nice decor. We had the set menu that offered everything from the menu. Surprised at the lack of range in the white wine offered as the menu is mainly fish. No muscadet or Sauvignon blanc... read more

Tried to have lunch a little before 1330 but was told that the kitchen no longer served lunch. This is early in France and perhaps they are so successful that they couldn't be bothered to serve a couple who did not come at 1200.

I hope your trip to Arcachon wasn't so boring that you have time to cast a slur on a restaurant you didn't visit... ;-) And 13h30 is not early to have lunch in France, trust me, i live and work here. There are so many smarter ways to exist... Au Pique Assiette More

Food ✓, Service ✓, Location ✓, Atmosphere ✓, Beautiful French Waitresses ✓… I could go on and on ticking every imaginable box, that’s how good this place is. Like a lot of restaurants in France, Au Pique Assiette offer a set menu. Two courses for €16.50, add another for €19.50. Which is fantastic value for the quality of food you... More

My wife and myself had a very nice dinner in the "Au pique assiette" restaurant close to the Arcachon town beach, on the 18th of September 2015. The place is large with a lot of space between customers. The service is very good and waiters kind and very efficient (we received very good advice on wine). We went for a... More

This is a reasonably good local restaurant serving satisfactory but not memorable food in a medium price bracket. The restaurant is simple and a little stark. Our waitress was busy but efficient and helpful. On a note of caution the menu offers a fixed price for any selection of starter , main and dessert but when leaving our bill showed... More

Dined here last night (21st) First get the negative out the way. We were one of the first in and waited and waited after giving our order. Wine took an age to come and saw others getting same food we ordered. In fairness I think the order got lost. The waitress then told us, with an apology there was an... More

Lovely, friendly and welcoming restaurant away from the quality desert of the main town. Great range of cocktails and an interesting wine list well priced. The food I've never had arcachon oysters before but have eaten a lot of oysters. These were perfectly fresh but bitter and metallic served only with lemon and regular bread. Not great. Maybe the time... More

My boyfriend and I stopped by as the restaurant was opening without a reservation and we were lucky enough to be seated outside on the beautiful terrace. Everything was absolutely flawless and I have to say this was one of the most memorable dining experiences we have had during our stay in the Arcachon area. We were served by a... More

Every bit as good as the reviews had led us to expect. The service was superb, with a lovely waitress very gently guiding us in the direction of a more suitable wine and bearing with my creaking French. All of the food was excellent but the sea bass was just perfect!
