The restaurant is nice decorated and the waiter was nice. We took menus: Starter : I will recommend the dish soup amazing! Rillettes a bit tasteless. The plat: I nearly drop off my seat , the meat was served with cheap crisp, IN FRANCE?!?! It's a shame, a purée or a few vegetables wouldn't cost much, come on! Crips!!! The... More

I definitely hate one-shot restaurants. This restaurant is the other extreme; exactly what I like but what my kids never will experience: The owners are real professionals, in the business since decades; the same for the personnel. At the same time they are relaxed, kind, give the best advice without pushing for excessive consumption. They do care about you coming... More

We dined at this restaurant one evening following a recommendation from the receptionist at our hotel. It is a pleasant, attractive, if somewhat old-fashioned restaurant and typically French in terms of décor and furnishings. The food comprises mainly fish dishes with a couple of meat options. There is a good choice from either set menus or à la carte and... More

A gem in Arcachon away from the busy sea front. Loads of seafood platters to choose from and fantastic wines to complement them. Specials are usually great too. It's becoming a regular haunt!

It was our first visit to Arcachon and we'd just come out of the train station and were walking towards the beach when we passed this place. We could see piles of fresh oysters and an assortment of gorgeous-looking seafood. After walking for about 2 hours in search of somewhere for lunch (lots of tourist set menus near the beach)...

Great welcome and helpful service followed by very yummy seafood - I particularly liked the Tuna Tartare, and was not disappointed with the sea food platter either. All washed down with very pleasant and reasonably priced regional white. All in all a lovely experience that I would be happy to recommend.

Fish soup not home made , squid was dry and not cooked properly . Fish and Seafood are probably fresh but not cooked properly . Needs a lot of improvement from the Chef . We do not really recommend this place.

This restaurant is opposite Arcachon station and has lots of tables outside. One of the chefs is a full time preparer of fruit des mers. This always gets me in a good mood! The oysters were fresh, cold and as they should be. The crevettes with mayonaise were swallowed by my son. The couteaux maybe a little to garlicy however... More

We're back in Arcachon yet again and our first proper meal had to be at Chez Yvette. We like it as we like an old friend, and accept some of its foibles as you would with an old friend. The waitress was charming and little haphazard at times, but the food was great and the ambience was - as ever... More

I guess the best review is: I was here twice.. This is an honest place - no seawiew or other fringe benefits; just the quality of the 50-something old family restaurant focussing on fish and seafood... First visit: fixed menu including oysters and salmon.. Oysters beyond perfect - but that is the sea, not the restaurant. The salmon: a disappointment.... More
