This restaurant is located in the port area of Arcachon (Aiguillon) in a pedestrian street. We ate outside and took the menu which was good and very reasonable priced. The staff was very friendly, we had good time

We were recommended this restaurant by friends. Our first attempt was foiled by not having made a booking, but we persevered and were very glad that we did! Our food was all freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Our waitress was very helpful and guided our selection of fish/seafood - she even helped us with our French! Would definitely visit again... More

Good fresh fish cooked simply, avoid the acras, they are definitely worth the ones made in the Antilles. Wine prices are decent as are the tapas.

Not even a "hello", bad service. This is the kind of restaurant i'll never go back because of such disagreeable welcoming.

We went to the dunes and decided to stop by for some dinner. Randomly selected le chipiron and what a great find it was. The place was packed on a Sunday night. The food was great, everything was very fresh and well cooked. Definitely recommend it.

We've been coming to this restaurant for ten years or so now simply because the service is friendly and the menu is reasonably priced; also it's one of a few places we know where we can get whitebait. Invariably we'll also stop off for a coffee in the morning (it's next to the bread shop) or an aperitif before lunch.... More

Nice fresh fish on the grill but rather expensive. The side vegetables could be better. If you want to spend less, choose the tapas assortment (calamari, ham, cheese ...). Small place, so a booking is highly recommanded
