Au Pique Assiette offers inside or outside dining with a short but nice choice from two prix fixe menus. Fish and seafood are the obvious things to go for, and what we had was generous and nicely presented. A starter of fish soup was richly flavoured with their own rouille and grated emmental, followed by an excellent whole roast sea-bass... More

I visited the restaurant for dinner alone in Aug. I had the salmon for main followed by the chocolate mousse and an Irish coffee. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The Irish coffee was quite possibly the best I have ever had, absolutely sublime! The waiting staff were incredibly busy, as it's a great little restaurant, however they... More

Truly one of the best secrets of Arcachon. We have never been disappointed. Be sure to reserve in advance as they are always fully booked at night. We have two teenage kids who like it but I'm not sure about little ones. It seems very grown up and discreet.

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.
