I was looking forward to eating the oysters in Arcachon. Au Pique Assiette was very good except the oysters. The oysters were very very small. I was disappointed …

This restaurant was really close to our hotel and recommended on TripAdvisor. We managed to get a table outside which was great to watch the world go by. It was a great dining experience, the food was flavoursome, really pretty dishes and a great service. It is reasonably priced, you can choose from a few menus, there is a good... More

We chose this place as the venue for our daughter's holiday birthday dinner and could not have been more pleased. It was a wonderful experience - fantastic food and great service. Foie gras starter was the best we tasted in France. Lovely fresh fish for main course followed by great chocolate pud. The food tasted authentic and wholesome. Just fancy... More

This restaurant was one of the nearest to our hotel (Le Dauphin), and is a bit further out from the main 'tourist' restaurants on the promenade. We arrived early, which was just as well as it filled up quickly and we didn't have a reservation. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, good service, and they remembered our preferences when... More

We picked this restaurant because of the good reviews and we certainly second those. Great evening with attentive staff that didn't feel rushed. The entrée - plat - dessert for 26 EUR for home-made food is totally worth it. The children's menu consists of salad and steak haché and dessert for 10.50 EUR! We asked if it would be possible...

Very friendly service! Entrees had a decent selection of fish, all cooked fairly naturally and simply, Decent wine selection. Nicely informal. A really comfortable pleasing meal even though nothing was outstanding.

Trying to find somewhere to eat on a Monday evening in France the day after a holiday weekend can be difficult and there is often little choice because most are closed. Of the few options only this one seemed OK but did not look that great from the outside. However when the first course arrived any doubts evaporated with superb... More
