We're back in Arcachon yet again and our first proper meal had to be at Chez Yvette. We like it as we like an old friend, and accept some of its foibles as you would with an old friend. The waitress was charming and little haphazard at times, but the food was great and the ambience was - as ever... More

I guess the best review is: I was here twice.. This is an honest place - no seawiew or other fringe benefits; just the quality of the 50-something old family restaurant focussing on fish and seafood... First visit: fixed menu including oysters and salmon.. Oysters beyond perfect - but that is the sea, not the restaurant. The salmon: a disappointment.... More

As I was planning a weekend in Arcachon with a good friend, I saw Chez Yvette's good ratings on Trip Advisor. I therefore booked a table for 2 via La Fourchette on Trip Advisor, we wanted to treat ourselves to some tasty fresh seafood. We were quickly welcomed upon our arrival with a free glass of sangria each (we were... More

The decor in this restaurant is fantastic - very retro. Good choice on menu for seafood lovers and meat eaters too. Dog friendly which is always a bonus for us. Very enjoyable evening meal.

We came across this restaurant as we made our way from teh station to the Tourist Information Office. We had only a short time before catching the bus to the Dune du Pylas and the staff were very efficent in taking our order and serving it. The food was delicious. The grilled mixed fish was superb and the skate wing... More

I came to that restaurant according to my boking. The kitchen was closed, they did not let me in, didn't care at all about my reservation. That was my birthsday, had to eat cold pizza on a gas station instead of having a dinner in a restaurant

It looks promising for a seafood restaurant that's not on the main boardwalk and with a reputation as a local favorite but the lobster (supposedly not frozen but cooked live) was not as promised and although everything else we had up to that point was good, it was a let down main course. I can't fault the staff, very good... More

This restaurant, renowned for its seafood, is a local institution. A family of oyster farmers has run it for some 40 years. Nautical setting and a lively atmosphere. My husband and I found it by accident as we were rather put off by the touristy restaurants located on the beach. When you first walk look immediately to the right and... More
