A local reputation for being the best restaurant in Royan is not an exaggeration but a fact in our view, The ambiance, decor, service and of course the food! make this a very popular eatery with regulars and holidaymakers alike, it is very recommended to book if you want a table. Local produce, meticulously prepared in a 'Nouvelle cuisine' style... More

We were a party of 12, ranging from 7 to 72, having pre-booked in England using TA reviews. All our food was excellent; it's impossible to select a "star" dish, as all were superb and beautifully presented. They also offered a lovely range of cocktails. Service was very friendly and efficient - I should mention the delicious fish and chips... More

A very cute and inviting decor. This place was also recommended as being one of the best restaurants along the sea front in Royan. The presentation of the food was lovely. After the initial visual appeal, the food did lack the depth of flavour one would expect to enjoy based on the descriptions on the menu. The fish was moist... More

This restaurant has very good food. You will not leave hungry. I wish they also had "a la carte" and not have to take the menu because it was too much food and couldn't finish.

This restaurant was recommended in the Rough Guide and we weren't disappointed. The location on the harbour front is great. We had the 23 euro set menu which had a great choice including a chef's special for each of the 3 courses. The service was excellent, the food delicious and attractively presented. We would highly recommend it

It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I stayed at the Hotel Corinna (see my review), and the proprietor strongly recommended this restaurant. A great suggestion! It's a seafood restaurant overlooking the boat harbor, very near the Bordeaux ferry. Decor is bright and comfortable, and service is attentive and efficient. I had a pasta dish with squid, and Mrs.... More

Facing Royan marina the restaurant is in a nice spot and gives a pleasant view (we were next to a window), the staff are very welcoming, friendly and offer advice where needed. The menu is mainly fish with a number of choices including one dish for each course that depended on the chef's mood of the day - I tried... More
