We had only two nights here and could have stayed a lot longer. The food was great - exceptional seafood in the restaurant and breakfast had a good selection. The rooms were absolutely wonderful with views over the estuary. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Talmont village is a leisurely stroll away with beautiful views and artisans craft shops. The...

We'd been told that Talmont was well worth a visit, and when we were almost there, saw a sign for L'Estuaire, and decided to call there first. We were greeted warmly by the Spanish owner or manager, and secured the last vacant room. Quite pleasant, nothing to complain about at all, but our best move was to book a table... More

We were looking for a nice but not heavy seafood and fish lunch. Most of the restaurants in Talmont were either Crêperies or formula without fish etc. So we thought it was worth a 5 minute walk to L'Estuaire. Great decision! The location, food, wine and service were excellent for a reasonable price. See our photos.....

Visited for 2 nights and we were greeted by a very helpful gentleman. A nice walk into Talmont itself. Would highly recommend it.

Enjoyed a beautiful lunch in beautiful surroundings. Staff extremely helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Food was excellent - shellfish platter was as fresh as it could be and portion was generous so I had to share! Foie gras got my husbands vote on this occasion - "when in Rome" as the saying goes! Both opted for steak (French medium)... More

Food here is excellent! Mainly a menu based on fish and seafood, there are dishes for carnivores as well. Situated alongside a 'creek' in the estuary of the Gironde, there is absolutely no wish to hurry eating. Slow food (and slower-paced servce) are the norm - but .. what's the rush anyway?! The views are superb and the food deliciously... More

Went here on a rainy Tuesday night and was very pleasantly surprised by the welcome and the food. We all had the 19€ menu which was excellent. Will definitely be going back.

We arrived for a late lunch after walking around Talmont and sat outside, overlooking the bay. There was a broad choice of dishes and all that we ate and rank was excellent. The ambiance was delightful (far few people than in the town) and the service excellent - the staff were delightful. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at this place for a couple nights. It is located just outside of Talmont itself so you can enjoy the view depending on your room and your dining table. Also you have access to easy and free parking for the car. Rooms are okay and the breakfast is common but decent. Maybe overpriced for what it is, but... More
