Still nice to go

We come here since the opening. Although the romantic and authentic atmosphere of the beginning is gone ( it became a bit like a 'factory') it is still a fun place to go, with a group of friends or family with kids. Come early to have a table immediate. If you can wait, when the weather is nice... read more

At the harbour in Capbreton you will find this simple restaurant with simple but very tasty sea food. Staff is friendly, service quick and the atmosphere relaxed.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us by friends living close by. Thoughly highly touristy, it didn't disappoint. Great location, mussels and service. Fantastic value for money!

The last time I ate here was 2 years ago (pre being on trip advisor) and loved it every time. I got home from France this week and we ate there twice during our stay. Before going I was worried as some reviews were not great but my experience of it was fab. Exactly how I remember it! Awesome location... More

Write your name on the waiting list and have a drink at the bar whilst you are waiting. Good system for a very busy restaurant. Got in there and all the waitress were lovely got served straight away and food came within 5 minutes. These were the best mussels myself and my boyfriend have ever had. Would love to know... More

Hi, I have been going to Minus since it originally opened as a shack and have loved it since then. This summer I went only 3 times (I usually stay at least 4 weeks if not more in the area). The first time the mussels were very salty and we couldn't finish the food. I still came back and when... More

Eating outside next to the yachts, beautifully fresh sardines cooked Mediterranean style, full of what looked like locals. Service was speedy too.

Faulous place, write your own name on the board for reservations, wait and drink some wine. Sit on benches next to other people, eat huge bowls of Moules, sardines, gambas. Very cheap like 8euros ... Mop up with bread.... Drink more rose wine and finish with a cornetto style dessert. No fuss, fabulous food and buzzing atmosphere...... Gutted we didn't... More
