We enjoyed a superb lunch here on a Sunday in mid Sept (just off season)...We put our faith in the reviews and were not disappointed one bit! The Scallop tartar starter was delicious, followed by a superb steak tartar with the much celebrated garlic fries....not to be missed! Then a giant sized Chocolate Profiterole....what more could one ask for? Lovely... More

This marks my second summer experience in this lovely part of France and I was keen to rush back to this lovely oasis overlooking the Northern corner of the lake. The restaurant closes in October but it is really happening in August. Getting a table outdoors is the objective. The menu has some special treats and duck is a local... More

This restaurant is located in a quiet street next to the lake of Hourtin. In a very leisurely atmosphere great food is served. Meat and iced stuff seems to be their specialty. It is done extremely tasteful! The view is spectacular! The place feels holiday and the food is really recommended! Wine list is as one should expect with some... More

The restaurant is on the other side of the lake from Hourtin-Port, but not a long drive. Peaceful setting beside the lake. They start at 7pm when the restaurant is very quiet - later it gets very busy and you might have to book. Varied menu and very good food. Definitely recommend this.

This restaurant is a wonderful place to spend a family lunch with a magnificent lake view on the lac Hourtin. The waiter first shows the recommendations of the chef which is very enticing. The dishes are well presented for a small place like this one and they are delicious. There is a large selection of starters, seafood and meats but... More

Friends who vacation here regularly introduced me to this charming place. A lovely open restaurant overlooking the largest lake in France. The casual open setting is ideal as kids can play in the field in front of the restaurant. The carpaccio is particularly good as are the grilled shrimp. Their garlic French fries smell delicious but tend to be a... More

Average - and poor portions for the price. The big flaw is the service: the worst I ever experienced. Have you ever tried a nearly basculating table and stuggled to get another, then waited 2 hours to have the mains delivered? Never - ever - again!!

This is our favourite restaurant in Piqueyrot which is a small holiday village of rustic houses right on the huge lake near Hourtin. The restaurant has many outdoors tables and a quiet road and you can wander straight from the lakeside to have your aperitif and supper. The highlights of their menu is their steak with garlic frites - their... More

Found this place on the web and thought it looked good and yes it lived up to expectation, well exceeded them actually. Very good food imaginative menue and a small but good wine list. You have to have their "special" French fries. It is quite a basic venue but don't let that put you off it's a great place to... More
