We had a good meal here and the service was friendly and attentive. From the seafront area it's a bit of a walk along a busyish road but not too far. Once inside we didn't notice the traffic.

Had alcoholic pre drinks and after drinks, nice bottle of wine, excellent food and came to €178 for the four of us. Starters were fish soup, juicy large oysters, froi gras and goats cheese. Mains were two confit Conrad,... More

A little way out of the centre of Arcachon, but worth looking it up Quite busy even on a Monday evening. The staff were extremely pleasant and conversed well in English, we were even offered a menu in English which really helped! The Sea Brean and the beef were delicious,as was the chocolate mousse that followed. Good value for money,... More

Let's paint the right picture".......... We dined out of season and not much was happening in good old Arcachon. We made our reservation with Fork having reviewed TripAdviser. This is a family pleasing place with some English speaking waitresses. Our waitress was very pleasant and very helpful. We tried items that without her, we never might have ordered. We had... More

After Consulting TripAdvisor to get the top listing for restaurants in Arcachon, the Au Pique Assiette appeared to be a must. We have been 6 persons, and made a table reservation for dinner during lunch time. The location it self is directly attached to a street, traffic is moderate. However, not a lot of space sitting outside and due to... More

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
