We were just discovering the region and fell on this place one lunchtime.
The restaurant itself in on the roadside but well protected from passing cars, there is an outside terrace and a lovely room where we ate, most of the déco is wood.
The service was brilliant, one of the owners (I think) was so relaxed but professional that the whole experience was a pleasure.
The wife had a lovely steak and I had a Fish Parillada which was quite exceptional and very copious,
The price was really very reasonable for the whole experience so don't hesitate, don't forget to book though they were full up.

Very good restaurant for eating fish. We choose the 25 euro menu: entrée with 9 oysters, main dish with grilled swordfish and a selection of french cheese. The fish was fresh and delicious, above all I liked the oysters.
2 negative observations: first, I sent an email 1 week before in order to book a table, but anyone answered me (fortunately, I went under low season and it was not really necessary...); second, it was cold inside, existing heating apparatus was not suffisant. But I strong advise this restaurant...

Visiting family in France after New Year, we 'forced' them out to Sunday lunch, so nobody had to cook for a change - though we all love cooking as good seafood produce here by Arcachon! Didnt read TR before booking/eating so was surprised to find it reviewed (in French) but can agree #1 as best we found so far in area.

The Cabanon is indeed like a 'cabin', reminded us of some Tahoe places so we loved it from first sight but inside it is even better. Friendly reception even though we were not known and obviously 'foreign', well organised and we were served quickly. Having someone with you who reads/speaks French would be a good idea to get the best enjoyment, as not everyone ordering a brochette would be happy to receive a skewer of rose (half-cooked) veal kidneys but we knew the game so were very happy. I had Espadon (swordfish) which was tasty and filling, served with a jacket potato, just great for a cold January day as the sun does not always shine in France! Our 3year old grandson had the special baked Camembert as starter and main, then shared our desserts. 'Menu regionale' at €18.50 for 3 courses is a steal, especially as the starter is choice of 9 (NINE!) local oysters or foie gras or something else we forget what. Cannot wait for the next visit!!

WARNING - if you want Sunday lunch, reserve ahead! We had pre-booked on the Friday, when at midday it was full of local people, always a good sign.
