We'd been travelling around France and Spain for nearly 2 weeks. We'd come to the end of the trip and stayed in Arcachon for 2 nights. On trawling through trip advisor I saw this place and wanted to visit. SO GLAD WE DID! We arrived on a Saturday night around 7.30 thinking that we would beat the rush and as... More

I only have good comments to make about this restaurant which is located close to the seaside and next door to our hotel. Booking made from UK was made easy by staff's ability to speak English. Menu excellent and choices explained and advice given regarding appropriate wines to go with each dish. Staff excellent especially our waitress 'Invictus'. She'll recognise... More

I've come here a few times for lunch and I am always delighted by the service, exquisite food and quiet atmosphere. The foie gras entree is out of this world.

Very nice restaurant, especially to eat fish. Better to book in advance if you want to have a table. The service is pleasant. Everything is homemade. The prices are decent. A place to go to in Arcachon.

Excellent seafood restaurant. Everything was impeccable. We went on a sunny day so we got to sit on their porch in the sun which was very nice. The service was very good and servers very nice. The price was appropriate for the quality food which was excellent as well. We were pressed for time but they still did everything to... More

Hard to find a Monday night restaurant out of season n France. We were lucky to find this. Friendly staff and nice decor. We had the set menu that offered everything from the menu. Surprised at the lack of range in the white wine offered as the menu is mainly fish. No muscadet or Sauvignon blanc. The starter and main... More

Tried to have lunch a little before 1330 but was told that the kitchen no longer served lunch. This is early in France and perhaps they are so successful that they couldn't be bothered to serve a couple who did not come at 1200.

I hope your trip to Arcachon wasn't so boring that you have time to cast a slur on a restaurant you didn't visit... ;-) And 13h30 is not early to have lunch in France, trust me, i live and work here. There are so many smarter ways to exist... Au Pique Assiette More

Like a lot of restaurants in France, Au Pique Assiette offer a set menu. Two courses for €16.50, add another for €19.50. Which is fantastic value for the quality of food you... More
