Good food and good service

The restaurant was fully booked but later in the evening we were happy to get a table (as we didn't want to miss this place after all the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor). We were not disappointed! Service very friendly, food very good!

My wife and I booked this restaurant for New Years Eve having only seen the Trip Advisor Reviews. It was an excellent meal. All courses had an either or choice. Or a choice of smaller plates of everything on the menu which we went for. It was delicious and for her very first time in her life my wife even... More

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...
