Affordable family lunch that was very flavourful. I had a beautiful crusted PintAde with carrot pasta and three sauces on the plate. So good!!! My in laws had a tuna risotto and said it was also divine with the fresh veggies and tuna. Dessert was creative also. Would return here again.

Very dissappointing meal. We found out later that they had changed owner or chef de cuisine recently, which would explain this bad experience. Service was like you can expect in a fast food resto. Fish was tasteless, wine choice very limited and the cheese plate was no more than 3 little pieces of the cheapest cheeses you can possibly find... More

The staff at the B' Arcachon Hotel suggested this in-town restaurant. It is in a small charming venue about 5 minutes from the beach promenade. It has a small downstairs and upstairs seating approximately 30 people. The restaurant is charming with a effective blend of white, nautical blues and light grey hues enhanced by its subdued but effective lighting. The... More

This was a very special place. We had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. My partner claims the sweetbread was the best he has ever had. And the desserts were amazing!

Fabulous food, excellent value for money. Reservation essential as this restaurant is very popular. Le Menu offers a variety of dishes, presented beautifully and a food lovers treat.

This little restaurant is run by enthusiastic and imaginative young people. The excellent value menu changes daily and uses lovely ingredients perfectly cooked. A refreshing change from some stick-in-the-mud French restaurants. Reasonably priced wine list.

We ordered from the daily special and off the carte, and everything dish was delicious. oysters with vinegar jelly, fish (cabillaud for one and lotte for the other) were very good and creatively presented. My safran risotto was super. The assortments of local cheeses was super. A very good bottle of Sancerre. Servings were perfectly sized for us (small), and... More

Delicious take on local food with a fancy preparation yet the atmosphere is friendly and the staff super helpful and nice. A must go if you visit Arcachon and want to avoid the over-priced tourist places around.

We had the meal of our time in France here. The chef is obviously super talented, inventive and creative without being fussy or pretentious. I had one of the best entrees of my life here: white asparagus with a mushroom velote and house made blood sausages....not heavy, a light delicious appetizer. Great place great service.

We went to this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews, it looked dead on our first night so we went elsewhere, but I'm glad we went back! The food was great and the service acceptable. We had the €25 set menu and it was great.

Thank cgrifo
