As we had just got engaged moments before arriving here we were already on cloud 9 and no matter where we would have dined that night it still would have been great however Jean des Sables just made it all the more special.
Location right on the beach with the sunset going down with a bottle of Champagne and beautiful food, what more could we have wanted!
If you are in the area this place is a must!

This is one of our favorite restaurants and the food is superb. Always something surprising using local products. To be honest, we would go for the bread alone, however every dish is a delight. Presentation, ambiance, location and service on top of everything else make you wish that your meal would never end.

This restaurant doesn't yet have a Michelin Star, but based on my dining experience I cannot believe it won't get one soon. The outside of the building looks ugly and most unlike a restaurant, but press on to the entrance, because it's more than worth while. The atmosphere and ambience is smart white tablecloth style, but nonetheless very relaxed and friendly. There is a small bar area for pre-dinner drinks. Best value on the menu is probably the set menu "Fish and Chic" for about 60 Euros. There is also a gastronomic set menu for some 80 Euros, or you can eat a la carte. Wine starts at about 25 Euros a bottle. So this is not a cheap restaurant, but the food is really superb. We went as a group of 5, and with pre-dinner drinks, a half bottle of wine each and a 3 course a la carte menu plus tip, the cost was about 100 Euros a head. I had the foie gras and oyster starter, an unusual combination, but amazing in taste.
This restaurant is definitely worth adding to your must visit list for that special night out if you are holidaying in the Hossegor/Capbreton area.

Great dining experience. It's like going OUT for dinner instead of eating a restaurant your standard protein, vegetables and potatoes.
The owner is a Michelin chef, the food is excellent.

We chose the FISH & CHIQ menu for ± 60euro. And we received bread with butter, enterance, then the four course menu, then a basket with some muffins, madeleine and a tasty nougat cacao ball.

The dishes are nice small portions, true gastronomy. They use mostly local ingredients and create great tastes.

A must try if you like good food. And a very VERY fair price.

This was our third visit to Jean des Sables and it was another wonderful experience - beautifully presented food, stunning flavours and a lovely ambiance. The fantastic sunset completed the perfect evening. Can't wait for our fourth time!
