We encountered a reservation issue when reaching the place. But all very well managed by the staff - a table with sea view was found after a short waiting time enjoying a drink at the roof top with an amazing sun set view of the shore. All dishes where very decent, kids menu was deliver swiftly - waitstaff is helpful,... More

Unfortunately we had to wait a very long time before our dinner was served. And then it occurred that they brought the wrong food. They have a beautiful place, but the kitchen and the waiters have to cooperate much better an do if they like their job. They're too stressed and they can't handle the many people.

First I avoided this place because it had bad reputation on tripadvisor, but I didn't find anything else, a lot of places were closed, so we've been there with my wife, her parents and our baby. The waiter was nice, polite, helpfull. Prices are very correct, and the view is great, you can watch the surfers from the terasse. The... More

We chose this place because of the view over the beach. The service was friendly and quite fast. Our waiter spoke better English than most other waiters we have met in the area. The burgers were ok, but the fries were overcooked. We got more juice in the glass than in most places we've been. All in all a good... More

As new residents in the Bordeaux area, we go quite a lot to Lacanau over weekends and has spotted this nice looking place in the early spring season. After reading some of the comments below we were clearly limiting ourselves to drinks and afternoon snacks. We decided to try lunch today and I could not recognize any of the negatives... More

We chose this restaurant because it looked really nice from the outside, is well decorated and near the ocean with a stunning view. The service was really charming and fast. The food was good and the portion size was average. The negative aspects: the pasta was strongly overcooked, the burger is just minced meat and sauce in a bun (... More

This restaurant is nice located at the boarder of the ocean and had an attractive facade and interior. So we decided to give it a chance. The medium cooked steak we ordered was cooked rare. Calamari was not the fried version we expected but this could be a wrong expectation on our side. There where no bubbles in the cola.... More

Very nice location with great view out over the ocean. Good tapas, great calamari although quite a modest portion. We had 3 different types of main; my wife and I had the dish of the day which was fish with a compote of aubergine and sun-dried tomato with a rocket jus - delicious and at only Eur 12.50 each excellent...

We thought the reviews were worth a try. It looked good and the setting was good. Started well although the waiter thought he could bully us as to his way of doing things! We thought the customer was alright but Colin had other ideas. He then told me to wait while he spoke!!! Unfortunately things got worse when we asked... More

Sat down for lunch in early July and the restaurant gave a more "ambitious" feel and had an "upscale" menu compared to most of the eateries around it. Service was just ok but the food made up for that; the appetizers, lunch, and dessert were cooked just right with good flavors and spice. With drinks the bill was on the... More
