“Nice food but very slow service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

we visited here after reading reviews from here. While the food was good,but the service was too slow.we received our dishes over an hour after we ordered(apparently they forgot our orders but no apology from them) and everything about the service was very very slow and disappointing.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this little gem in Bordeaux as we tried to escape a rainstorm. We had no reservation but they moved heaven and earth to accommodate us and what a treat we had!

Superb, fresh seafood cooked to the highest standard served in their stylish, quaint location overlooking the river. We had a sharing platter with almost every fish known to man and some delicious soup/broth as a starter.

The staff were fantastically knowledgable, friendly and spoke great English.

An absolute must of you're visiting Bordeaux!

“Wonderful food, wonderful people!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The seafood is superb, the bouillabaisse is the best around...really outstanding. The chef was so nice and helpful, he let us try a small bouillabaisse because it was too hot that day for a huge bowl. I will definitely return to Bordeaux, because it is awesome, and I will return to Le Cabanon Marin because it is what makes Bordeaux so awesome.

Thank you!

“Good food, but be careful ordering!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We came here on the strength of the reviews and the picture, as we had been shellfish-deprived while living in Germany. The staff was very friendly, and spoke better English than I expected, and willingly to boot. We ordered the big platter because it looked so yummy, without much inquiry. We shoudl have inquired. I don't mind raw oysters, and the crayfish and lobster were cooked, but I prefer my snails, mussels and clams cooked. Lobster would have been better warm or with butter or sauce. I would definitely eat here again but I would order differently; I suspect we didn't leave nearly as satiated and happy as we could have. I wish we had a do-over.

“C'est bon!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This was the first place we ate in during a recent city break to Bordeaux. It's a cool little place. Very helpful staff, they'll speak in English if you're really struggling, but will happily let you practice your French. Mostly the food was very good, but the best dish was the fish soup with rouille. It's amazing that all the food is cooked by one bloke who stands behind the bar! Definitely worth considering.
