We arrived without a reservation but were found a table with a little juggling - others were turned away only minutes later. The restaurant is quite small and most of the seats seem to be on the pavement so you have to take your chances if you're a non- smoker. There is a good price menu of the day but we chose a la carte (quite a bit more expensive!). However, we weren't disappointed. My duck and my husband's filet de bouef were both excellent quality and cooked perfectly (after much discussion with our waiter as to how medium rare really translated into French!). Definitely worth a visit but book first.

You can not visit Arcachon and not visit this restaurant. The special menu changes every day and 3 cources for 22euro is not be missed. All food is freshly prepared and wonderfully presented. The guys in the restaurant are so friendly and have such a passion for the food they serve. Good wine list also and something there for every taste. We ate here twice and both were the best meals in Arcachon/Bordeau/St Emilion over our 14 day trip.

We tried lots of restaurants in Arcachon. Most were not very good. This one, however, was great. Fun atmosphere and good food. There was a very limited selection and it is very French. It was freshly prepared and presented beautifully. Make a reservation. They are full every night in busy season, but you can make one the night before for the next night.

This was a great place for a very satisfying meal. The menu was very interesting with very stylish touches. The 22 euros three course meal was a good choice. There was even an amuse bouche. The usual local food (magret de canard, confit...) was presented imaginatively with unusual spicing and interesting combinations and there were some less common items, especially on the a la carte menu.
It was very full, even on a Tuesday, but the service was good, friendly, quick and professional. Our first two choices of wine were out but we had another which was excellent. This restaurant is getting close to the Michelin star category in terms of the food quality and presentation. Reservations are necessary but we made ours only an hour before and got the last table. People were being turned away by the time we arrived.

I had a lunch last summer at this little charming place and I was really surprised by the quality of food. We had the 18 euros menu and from start to end it was a delicious experience.
The service is very friendly and i would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a nice time in Arcachon
