La Hitillere is reliable and friendly and a great place to relax with good food and wine after a day at the beach. Sometimes staff can be a little rushed off their feet as the restaurant is the only place of quality in Messanges. The menu is limited but executed well. The kitchen can be stretched and it can sometimes take quite a while to get your food if you happen to arrive when the crowds arrive (approx. 9 p.m.). They make their own frites - so good, that for the first time in years I ate frite again. Their canard is good. The fish selection is a little underwhelming given you're at the seaside. And remember to bring cash - the credit card system can get knocked out easily during summer storms. Don't be surprised if your kids spend the whole evening at the billiard table - staff will work aroudn the situation with a smile ! They appreciate your business - I got a coffee and a brandy for our repeated custom. One waiter is an English teacher during off season in Bordeaux - relief for English speakers !!
