Paid several visits to restaurant. Lovely location and stunning sunsets. Lovely ambience. Good menu. Food very good. On last visit had long wait for the bill due to staff being under pressure - only negative of the experiences.

We stopped off at Le Soleil having cycled from Pyla to Arcachon and then back again. We'd spotted it on the way and decided that it looked like the perfect beach side restaurant. We made the right decision. I had the tomato salad (which was enormous) and the seabass ceviche, which was served with lemon infused olive oil. Having ordered... More

This is a beautifully located restaurant on the beach, overlooking Plage Pereire. We sat under the shade of the trees, looking out to sea while the boys ate poulet et frites, which was perfectly crisp on the outside and succulent inside. We had tuna which came with fresh, lovely vegetables and steak, which was great. At the end of the... More

The view, the food, the staff. . . it's just nice. Best to reserve during the busy season or the weekends.

Location is amazing, you can enjoy lovely sunset view. Food is quite average. We have dined there twice,one for dinner,one lunch. My husband had chicken salad which was delicious, the burger I had was pretty average. Fish carpaccio I had the other day was OK, not a particular fan of fish carpaccio. You pay for the premium location I suppose.

A last minute Sunday evening reservation was happily accepted and we showed up 30 min later, shown to our prepared table. The proprietors could not have been more accommodating and pleasant. The had some shortages of certain items on the menu but, managed nonetheless, to rustle up 4 kids meals with minimum fuss. We ordered a dozen oysters, and chilled... More

Nice ambiance, friendly stuff, the food was super tasty and good wine too. I wouldn't say that it is pricey, with that wonderful view on the ocean and for a classy restaurant I found the prices faire. Would definitely return.

We had an opportunity to share lunch with some greats friends on Saturday 4th June. We managed to sit in the outside area which is a very pleasant with good views of the beach. We were greeted by the friendly staff and were able to chose our own table. The waiters all spoke English, not that this has any importantance... More

My husband and I ate at this cafe/bar/brasserie twice on a recent escape to Arcachon. We were staying in the nearby thalassotherapy hotel which was rather stuffy and formal so we wandered down the road and found this fun, friendly brasserie where we spent one happy lunchtime and another even happier evening; eating, drinking, chatting with people at neighbouring tables...
