visited this place on recommendation. turned up fairly late and the place was packed. waiter friendly and attentive as possible for the busy-ness. chose the set menu for 32 euro with 3 courses. my date really enjoyed her choices, she had the crab soup for starter which was out of this world nice, a lovely brisque, she had the tuna steak for main which was also excellent, Half cooked and on a bed of noodles and won fried veg. lemon and mint meringue for dessert. i chose the foi gras starter which was okay, a nice granny Smith apple compote contrasted well, my main was the steak which was really a disappointment as it was full of gristle and sinew. was cooked perfectly just a bad cut of meat unfortunately and left a lot of it. home made ice cream dessert which was nice. expensive night when the food - really the steak - was sub standard. my dining partner would probably rate highet

We had lunch today at this restaurant and were very satisfied. First of all, very friendly and attentive service, both to the adults as to the children. The food was good, the highlight being an impressive seafood platter.
To finish it off, the terrace (especially the first floor) offers nice views on the Arcachon Bassin.
We would recommend this to anyone looking for seafood but also a menu that can offer something beyond.

I had dinner at the restaurant a few weeks ago with 3 of my family. We arrived too early but the staff invited us in and provided us with drinks at an excellent table whilst they had their own dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and the setting amazing - right beside the water. Well worth a visit.

This is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the water with a good range of French food, specialising in local seafood. The owner and chef is helpful, explains the meals and is very proud of his establishment.
