One of the very best bistro in Arcachon. Excellent atmosphere and quite an intimate place. Food was really great and service was OK although a little bit too familiar at times. Went there maybe a dozen times and will keep on returning on and on and on...

We stayed at the hotel and ate in the restaurant. An interesting place, an old water pumping station. The food was very good and there were many interesting dishes on the menu. My wife had Warm Oysters. Plenty of the seafood Arcachon is famous for. Well worth a visit.

Wonderful decor and very intimate location in the heart of Arcachon. Ancient factory turned into a boutique hotel and restaurant with a nice local food. The perfect summer dinner.

We were delighted with this restaurant, which we went to for my birthday. Both the starters and the main courses were perfect, with fine ingredients, impeccable cooking and presentation. Service was very good and very helpful. There was no set menu but the a la carte dishes were not excessive in price for the quality and quantity of the food... More

You will never regret a meal at this fabulous restaurant, I promise! The food is fabulously French, with fresh local produce, great wine from the Bordeaux region (not far away at all), lovely friendly service and properly cold beers for the apero!

By far the best food we ate in Arcachon. Great place, nice big terrace. The staff is funny and nice. The menu has some interesting food, the prices are decent for what you get, especially when compared to the rest of the eating places in Arcachon.

A charming place. We sat outside as the weather was warm. Food delicious. Wine excellent. Service, however, rather end-of-season, slow. Outdoor peace ruined by extensive roadworks outside. This, however, clearly, is temporary. Highly recommend it.
