Beautiful setting on the lake - worth booking a window seat. Friendly staff and fair prices but service a little slow which meant by the time they got to us our meals could have been warmer. To be fair it was fully booked on Bastille day and when you're watching the sun set and are used to Parisien service none... More

The restaurant is very simple but charming as the place, fish and seafood is fresh and very good, good service but maybe a bit slow. They have champagne at a great price.

After 40min waiting for the waitress we did not have the patience to wait more. Understaffed during summer. We should have read the comments here before booking.

Really enjoyed our evening here. Came across it quite by chance. A Monday night is a difficult evening to find somewhere, out of season, serving good fresh food. This restaurant did not dissapoint. The portions were plentiful, priced well, everything cooked fresh. Sitting inside watching the sunset, was the icing on the cake !

Good sea food and fish for a good value for money. Location is nice, surrounded by other restaurants and sea related businesses. Try the Tariquet wine which is local and so fruty... Delicious. The waitress could have been a bit more welcoming but it did not impact our satisfaction. Have a go!

We stopped while touring the oyster beds in France and at Gujan-Mestras. Although we were in a place where little English was spoken, our waitress spoke enough to take us thru the menu and make pleasant conversation about the area and our meal. The cold seafood platter was big and very good.

We were here one night in August. We had to book to get a table (tried the night before but then it was full). There was a lot of people but only one waitress. She worked very hard and was nice, but it took some time to place the order and to get our food. We had oysters and the... More
