Each time we are in Lacanau we have dinner at Le Bistro des Cochons. It's simply formidable! A atmospheric is cozy, the service is quick and friendly and the food is excellent. Especially now when "Les terrine de ma (grand) mere is back on the menue.

Yes, even in Lacanau Ocean you can get really good food, not just the beachy junky food. Fish carpaccio as a starter, superb thick pork chop as a main, delicious deserts (try the fruit sabayon). Fast and efficient service, and everyone greets you when you come in and leave. Perfect spot for an upper end dinner with good old friends... More

I went there with my husband and 3 year old daughter and we had an excellent dinner outside. The food is very good and staff very friendly. My daughter got a little treat for her birthday and she was very happy. Would definitively recommend.

Went for dinner with our family of four, we were warmly welcomed by friendly staff. After cocktails we decided for the 25 euro menu du jour, also for our children as we like to introduce them to new food. Plates were beautifully made, starter a Bordeaux style pate du porc, main steak hache (which is raw meat, just in case...)... More
