Our B&B hosts recommended this place for lunch. This is a seafood place and the customers are locals. We were 3 of us and spent 2 hours eating everything from oysters to prawns, fish, mussels, crab, you name it: if it swims they serve it....More

Friendly service. Oysters Gilladeau magnificent. The crab and avocado was a bit too rich for me, but husband's fillet de boeuf was superb. "Well cooked" and not at all dried out - bravo le chef. Trio of sorbets intensely flavoured.

A gem in Arcachon away from the busy sea front. Loads of seafood platters to choose from and fantastic wines to complement them. Specials are usually great too. It's becoming a regular haunt!

It was our first visit to Arcachon and we'd just come out of the train station and were walking towards the beach when we passed this place. We could see piles of fresh oysters and an assortment of gorgeous-looking seafood. After walking for about 2...More

Great welcome and helpful service followed by very yummy seafood - I particularly liked the Tuna Tartare, and was not disappointed with the sea food platter either. All washed down with very pleasant and reasonably priced regional white. All in all a lovely experience that...More

Fish soup not home made , squid was dry and not cooked properly . Fish and Seafood are probably fresh but not cooked properly . Needs a lot of improvement from the Chef . We do not really recommend this place.
