Cafe Maritime is a great spot to head for a drink and dinner to watch the sunset in Lacanau Ocean. The views out over the beach and coast line are breath taking (especially from the top floor of the restaurant) with delicious food and a generous drinks menu. Well worth a visit if you are staying in the area.

The location and the way the restaurant is built is fantastic. The staff was super friendly and professional. Had the fish of the day (Daurade) and it was very well prepared. My big disappointment was the mix of Thai inspired food. My opinion is that French cuisine doesn't need Thai stuff! My fish came with Thai rice which was somehow... More

Nice view from the upstairs and can be a busy restaurant, as to the food was average and can't see why lots of people shout about it really, had a better meal from a restaurant in the afternoon so was disappointed. Will give it a another go and will let you know how it goes.

All meals we have ordered were very good, well prepared with a little specific touch. The service is excellent, even at rush hour.

We came here for lunch because diner the night before was crowded, and outside of conventional eating hours, you can only get burgers, so we decided to wait. My lunch was actually surprisingly excellent. I had the thai Tartare, and although I don't think it's totally Thai, it's definitely good. Even the sort of wok vermicelli with veges were good....

We decided to go for a meal on the seafront in order to experience the sunset First impressions were of a friendly staff, nice location and good ambience. Clearly being out of peak season no doubt helped on the service front We started off with the fish soup which was excellent with good depth Sadly my experience then went downhill... More

Excellent location, overlooking Atlantic surf. Plat du jour was pulled lamb, on a bed of aubergine puree. Delicious. Only complaint was that there was no cheese board on offer, to finish our bottle of Haut Medoc with. Don't worry if your French is a bit rusty. Camille speaks excellent Australian ! We would certainly go back there.

It was a really hot day (36 degrees) and we were too hot and tired to walk all the way into the town Center. We were very glad we came across Cafe Maritime as the food and service were excellent. We have been coming on holiday to France over the last 4 years and this was our favourite meal so... More

While waiting for more than 1 hour for our food the waitress finally came to us to apologize that she totally forgot about us AND our food!! Guests that came in (much) later were served around us, so we were wondering (and patient because we weren't in a rush). You could see increase the stress within 30 minutes. Waiters and... More
