Birthday meal whilst on holiday

We booked a table to dine here on the evening of my birthday whilst recently in the area on holiday. The location of the restaurant was great and we had a table on the terrace overlooking the lovely Plage de Nauzan. Initial service was a bit slow but it did pick up during the evening.

Very nice restaurant very well located with a wonderful quiet view. The carte is very simple and there is no a la carte but only menu. Price is a bit on higher side consider you pay for the view. Starter arrive 2 min after ordering... And the staff is dynamic, sometime a bit too much, you can feel a bit... More

Very much a "fast food" restaurant, not that it is MacDonald's, but that they only give you an hour to eat. Ordered aperitifs, which arrived with the wine ordered for the meal. The starters then arrived about 30 seconds later. When we finished the starters, the main was delivered within minutes. It was a busy night and all they wanted... More

Great restaurant, reasonably priced with very friendly staff. The chef is clearly very interested in preparing great dishes and is a real credit to his profession. Can't wait to go back.

Had not booked but got in, seated on terrace with sea view. Only steps from the beach with a lovely sunset. Menu limited but food good. Value for money. Choice 2 or 3 course meal. We had 2 courses. You do get an 'amuse bouche', which was like a starter, this was free. Service was efficient. All in all a... More

This restaurant is facing the sea on Nauzan Plage, a beautiful little beach. The food wears very good, nicely presented and served with a smile. Would go there again that is for sure.

This restaurant is in an excellent setting just off the beach and in the evening may have some spectacular sunsets viewable from your table. The food is top quality and extremely well presented. The wine list is extensive but not too large to get lost within. The serving staff are attentive and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending... More

Arrived with out a booking to a fairly empty restaurant - it did fill up later. The welcome we received was poor with our being offered a table at the back behind a pillar. After minor negotiation we ended up on the terrace overlooking the pretty bay. Initial service was slow but then our waiter, a pleasant young man, came... More

Our first visit and impressed. Up market food compared to La Maison Blanc but just as good a setting. Girls had tournedos Rossini with good pieces of foie gras and excellent steak, my wife had a brochette of giant scallops on a bed of crab risotto and I had duck. All very good. There is a good fish choice too... More

We had not been to this restaraunt since it had changed name and been altered. We were very impressed although it would had been even better had we booked a table as we could have had a table with an even better view of the bay. The staff were very friendly the food was very good it is expensive but... More
