Beach side cafe. A+ people watching, attentive waiters, moderately priced. Excellent crepes and salads. Coffee, of course.

The seat along the walk way by the bay was superb. Happen to be there at sunset and what a sunset it was. The service was great and the food was excellent.

Perhaps the most popular and certainly the best of the sea-front eateries in Arcachon, we were so impressed with the food, the service, the ambience and the 'fun' of this place that we dined on two consecutive nights. That is unusual, even rare! The choice of seafoods and mainly fish dishes is excellent and they offer good value, too for... More

We enjoyed the cocktails at this beachfront cafe. Patio heaters are installed so no need to worry about those sea breezes. We did not eat here but some nice nibbles were served with our drinks. Good place to sit and watch the world go by and the sunset.

Sat outside for a quick drink in the morning. Paid 10 euros (!!!) for an OK coffee and a bitter orange juice. There was nothing sweet available to eat at 11am and the service was slow and apalling even with an empty cafe. The only good thing, being able to drink your stupidly expensive coffee while looking at the sea... More

Delicious seafood, wine and great views over Arcachon bay. Limited evening menu but see sister restaurant next door Chez Pierre (booking recommended in evening).

So many restaurants on the sea front to choose from but came here on personal recommendation, and it was great. Everything.

We came here at the end of lunchtime and so were lucky enough to get a seat at the front of the restaurant overlooking the beach. We chose from the set menu. Really decent starters of foie gras, and goats cheese & prawns. Main course of prawns was fine, but my fish with risotto was a little undercooked and the... More

Cafe de la Plage was a welcome interlude between sunning and promenading in Arcachon. The view could not be better, facing the beach, and it is conveniently, centrally located. The prices were very reasonable for glasses of wine and the outstanding tartines-- the Iberique generously served two for lunch, and the server was very accommodating. What we anticipated was going... More
