We celebrated a family birthday here on a recent trip to Hossegor and were not disappointed. My husband and i had enjoyed a meal here last year and although the menu hadn't changed enormously in that time, we didn't mind as it was still delicious....More

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...More
