In my view, the best restaurant in Hossegor. Fantastic traditional French food. Staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Wines were great. Superb lakeside location with easy parking and it was a hit with the teenagers as well! Will definitely be going back on my next visit.

The food was kinda disappointing: the fish soup was too salty, the main dishes bland. Not worth the money. Really nothing special. I do not recommend this restaurant.

Great location overlooking the lake, friendly and welcoming staff. They had a children's menu with good options. I felt the main menu was a bit limited, but to be honest I'm not a big seafood fan (my husband is hence the visit) so I may not be the best judge. My food was nice, but only opinion nothing special.

A visit to Degustation du Lac is an essential component of all of our trips to Hossegor. We have been eating at the restaurant since 1997. Does it have the best seafood in Hossegor? Probably not, but the quality is high and eating on the terrace overlooking the lake, watching the sun set, is hard to beat. Perhaps part of... More

Decent food, great view of the lake. Slightly underwhelming food quality. Nice welcome and service. Best to book a table if possible.

No problem getting a table for two on Fathers Day with my son. No problem parking, we just chained (unnecessary) the bikes up against the resto. wall. We ate moule mariniere and each had a lovely cold beer on a hot evening. A bit of a wait for the food, the bread was OK. Plenty of really good moules and... More

We ate dinner there twice during our holiday in Hossegor. Both times we were in a family party of 11 with ages from 84 (grandparent) to 14 (grandson) with a range of likes and dislikes in food. We were all very happy with our choices which included both fish and meat dishes. Two of us had the plateau de fruit... More

There is. It has very good food and offers really good value for money. I passed this restaurant about 6 times during my one week visit to Hossegor, and both at lunch and dinner it was always full. I figured that this must be because it was worth it, so decided to visit. The restaurant is located about half a... More

Before going back to Scotland, we spent our last dinner at La degustation du lac, a charming place located just in front of the Hossegor lake. I ordered the seafood plate, and my husband a mix of different fishes. Everything was delightful, from the service to the food, and all of the waiters were really nice. We were upset to... More
