Ate here on a nice spring day had to sit inside to fit with the stroller. Had the menu du jour started with a plate of shrimp oysters and cockles had never had these type of sea snails but they were easy to figure out and tasty. Then had a cod dish that was mashed potato with the fish mashed... More

Time and again, I try to get back and see if the standards are maintained and on my most recent visit they were. Oysters are wonderful as usual and the dishes of the day can be relied on. I had the shrimps "a la plancha" with risotto and some delicious Cote de Provence rose.

Beach side cafe. A+ people watching, attentive waiters, moderately priced. Excellent crepes and salads. Coffee, of course.

The seat along the walk way by the bay was superb. Happen to be there at sunset and what a sunset it was. The service was great and the food was excellent.

Perhaps the most popular and certainly the best of the sea-front eateries in Arcachon, we were so impressed with the food, the service, the ambience and the 'fun' of this place that we dined on two consecutive nights. That is unusual, even rare! The choice of seafoods and mainly fish dishes is excellent and they offer good value, too for... More

We enjoyed the cocktails at this beachfront cafe. Patio heaters are installed so no need to worry about those sea breezes. We did not eat here but some nice nibbles were served with our drinks. Good place to sit and watch the world go by and the sunset.

Sat outside for a quick drink in the morning. Paid 10 euros (!!!) for an OK coffee and a bitter orange juice. There was nothing sweet available to eat at 11am and the service was slow and apalling even with an empty cafe. The only good thing, being able to drink your stupidly expensive coffee while looking at the sea... More

Delicious seafood, wine and great views over Arcachon bay. Limited evening menu but see sister restaurant next door Chez Pierre (booking recommended in evening).
