Reviewed May 14, 2012

13.90€ per person for a main dish + desert, the food was really excellent, it might be possible to find better restaurants in this region, but it would cost at least 30€ / person ! I recommend to anybody going to Cap Ferret

“Wonderful surprise... wonderful meal.”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

Wandered into an almost empty restaurant on a grey end of season night at an almost deserted beach town... and had a fantastic meal. Chef had time to have a glass of wine with us before cooking dinner. Most engaging. Good wine too. And dinner was Excellent! Quality / Price for a high end beach town was better than good. Service was friendly, fun and very hospitable. If you are out on the cape... don't miss it.

“Name's a joke but food anything but”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Like everywhere on Cap Ferret, the seafood is what to go for. We turned up late one lunchtime, without a booking, which caused some consternation especially as my partner and son went on ahead of me. Eventually all well. Salad excellent, but stand-out dish was the langoustines - gigantic crustaceans cooked in a creamy pernod sauce. My partner had an (expensive) double-portion as a main course and I pinched a couple of them, having room after polishing off my red mullet and herby potatoes. Wine by the jug, always a good sign. The waitress a little brusque but efficient. The chef came out to see how we were doing. Maybe it was just late and he was trying to get rid of us but it was all very jolly. ot cheap, but nowhere is in France these days. Gives Chez Hortense a run for its money.
