Went here with a group of English business men, all spending really well and looking forward to our alleged first class dining experience! The staff ignored us for 20 mins and didn't acknowledge us or ask up if we'd like a wine order! We ordered the top priced menu which was at best average but thought it was far better... More

Totally unexpected format on this little desert.In contrary to ocean waves and wind super peaceful and slow food place.Recommended for homards and enormous starters.Beef as a main dish absolutely perfect!Better not to waste time for fish (sole is just correct with a lot of smoked flavour).Perfect place for a romantic dinner.

Fantastic food, high level of service and a well balanced wine list. A very nice experience in terms of gastronomy with superb flavors. The location right on the beach is pretty cool and with a bit of luck you can have a nice sunset...

I really enjoyed the vegetarian menu: superb flavors, new and delicate tastes. I'm not a wine expert, but I really liked what we drank: really pertinent with what we were eating. The location is perfect. I vote just 4/5, cause it's too expensive. I feel bad givin 5/5 after a huge bill.

Delicious, original and local fare. Beautifully prepared and created. The atmosphere was pleasant and it was smart attire which I found a pleasant change to other local restaurants. The chef is highly talented. We had the menu de degustation- a delight in every course. The service was friendly ( quite young so perhaps slightly inexperienced) but they seemed fairly happy...

A fantastic meal on what looked at first like a quiet Wednesday night in mid October. .. even with only us in the restaurant at first it was very comfortable and with our (extremely! ) limited French we were made to feel very very welcome. .. Went with the Fish 'n Chic tasting 5 courser and can't believe how well... More

The location is simply beautiful in front of the beach. The style is made of white wood that creates a nice atmosphere. The service is high level with the right degree of coolness. The food and the creation are simply amazing. The pricing comes at the same level (which makes sense).

This is set in a an usual part of Hossegor, slightly out the main part of town but with terrific views to the sea. The menu is extensive but possibly, depending on taste, not everyones cup of tea. Fairly expensive, one gets the feeling that possibly with a chef who has a very big reputation the restaurant could provide more... More
