Been here twice in the last 8 months, consistently good. Fresh seafood , imaginative and tasty compositions without being complicated or overdone. Have not tried the meat dishes, if they are as good as the fish and shellfish.... Recommeded!

By far my favorite restaurant around, and probably my favorite place in the world for a lunch: book one week before coming and you might get a frontrow table and enjoy the best view on the Dune du Pilat and the Bassin d'Arcachon. The staff is always nice and caring, the seafood is amazing with a lot of fresh choices.The... More

It's quite in September in Cap Ferret and not many places are open. We were happy to find Pinasse open, could sit outside with heaters on and had a great dinner with excellent service

Opening at 12:00, they book-up fast so be patient, the menu is worth a wait. A delightful place to just relax, enjoy an excellent meal cooked by a Michelin chef in a Michelin recommended location. Seafood is - of course - their speciality and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you don't speak any French, they... More

We have eaten here a few times over the years and every time have been impressed by the service and the delicious food. It is a well organised busy restaurant that hasn't disappointed us. And yes, I had the best freshest oysters here... and I... More

I reserved this restaurant for my husband's 60th birthday and was very happy with my choice. We were seven and had a round table on the terrace, with the fabulous view. Service was very professional without being rushed. The choice of menu options allowed us to order two or three dishes and taste a bit of everything. The appetizers were... More

It is quite expensive but worth it. One of the best adresses in Cap Ferret! You will need to book in advanced for a good table. Good fish and excellent meet. Outstanding wine menu.
