The server was very knowledgeable and really helped me figure out which wine to get. The price was great—4 euro for a large glass. A nice cozy mellow environment.

4 of us visited this restaurant based on the Trip Adviser reviews so we had high expectations. Upon arrival the waitress put a black board in front of us and told us we could only order off the board which had 3 choices for starter, mains and dessert. We assumed it was a set menu for the evening so we proceeded to order. As our starters arrived we noticed that locals visiting the restaurant were ordering anything off the menu so this frustrated us. The food we had was very nice, we really couldn't fault it but the waitress could have made more of an effort. She wasn't particularly friendly and we felt rushed at the end of our meal. We had barely put out spoons down after dessert and the plates were cleared and the bill was put on the table.
The food was very tasty but if you are looking for a friendly atmosphere with helpful staff then I wouldn't recommend Wine Not!

We’d read some good reviews on Trip Advisor so thought we’d give it a go and were not disappointed. The weather was fine so we had dinner on the terrace. The three course set menu for €18.80 was extremely good value for money. I liked also the way in which they presented their very affordable wines grouping them below red, white and rosé under dry, medium and sweet. This meant there was a good choice of rosé wines, which we like, unlike in other places where you’d be lucky to have two on the list. There was a homely yet professional feel to Wine Not and given all its qualities it’s no surprise that it gets very busy so be early or reserve a table!

We popped in the Wine Not? by chance last October when a lot of restaurants in this area are allready closed after the summer season. It's lovely atmosphere, the local visitors and the warm welcome by host Sabrina let us know we are in the right place. The food is delicious, wide range of offers of fish and steak - fresh and delivered by local dealers. Wine recommondation is highly recommendable, host Sabrina knows what she offers her guests - same with the high percentage licquour.

For us the Wine not? is an insider tip - and much better than other highliy recommendand tourist traps here on TripAdvisor.

We recently came upon this restaurant at 1845 hrs on a Monday night. The weather was bitter. Upon knocking on a door, a waitress informed us that they did not open until 1900 hrs. No offer to wait inside out of the cold was forthcoming. Reluctantly, we decided to tough it out because not much is open on Monday night in Arcachon at this time of year. When we were finally invited in the waitress opened the conversation by telling us how cold it was outside!!!!! Thanks, pardon us if our teeth are chattering too much to reply! At least the food was tasty. I had two very tasty medallions of duck breast and my wife had a salad. We also had a very nice bottle of local red. Our "no invitation" waitress turned out to be quite pleasant and helpful. What ended up being an enjoyable meal could have been a much more enjoyable meal if a little commonsense had been exercised. They came very close to losing our custom.
