We were staying near Jetee D'eyrac, and after researching seafood eateries, I decided on this one. Well worth the 2km walk! And along the seafront, was delightful. It was a Sunday night, and I booked on line through Trip Advisor and got a 30% discount...More

On a damp evening in February we hesitantly entered this restaurant near the 'Port de Plaisance'. Hesitantly,because there seemed to be no-one dining at 8pm on a Wednesday night. We discovered that there were diners at 3 tables in the 'mezzanine' area close to the...More

This is a town restaurant popular with the locals and fairly full when we visited. We hadn't booked and most people seemed to be "walk ins". The menu has an a la carte section as well as a couple of fixed price options available as...More

Located on a long boulevard. We stayed at the Nautic hotel in the same street: 10 min walk. We liked the atmosphere of la Bouée: small popular restaurant-tavern with nice local suprising cuisine and affordable price.

You could just eat the first plate and stop eating the main plate because you have enough to eat and with a good quality. But you continue to discover the other delicious plates. And the atmosphere is very nice. We were all very satisfied with...More

This is a small, family run restaurant on a main street away from the glamorous sea front establishments. We were a party of two and opted, unusually, for a set meal rather than the “a la carte” menu. We chose the 25 euro menu which...More

Just outside of the main centre of Arcachon, close to the fishing port, this restaurant is worth a visit, it certainly seems popular with the local residents. It's more attractive internally than the facade might suggest. The maritime décor is clean & fresh and the...More
