On a damp evening in February we hesitantly entered this restaurant near the 'Port de Plaisance'. Hesitantly,because there seemed to be no-one dining at 8pm on a Wednesday night. We discovered that there were diners at 3 tables in the 'mezzanine' area close to the kitchen. At first glance the table d'hote seemed expensive for what was on offer given... More

We were exploring this area one morning and had just visited the great Dune du Pilat. From there it seemed interesting to visit Arcachon. La Bouee is on a street corner and luckily we could park immediately outside. Always a good sign, this restaurant was packed with locals. We walked through two rooms full of customers to our table. Our... More

This is a town restaurant popular with the locals and fairly full when we visited. We hadn't booked and most people seemed to be "walk ins". The menu has an a la carte section as well as a couple of fixed price options available as well. The menus are not greatly extensive but the choice is adequate for most. The... More

The homemade French frites are excellent. The dishes are all right for the price (about 23€ for a complete meal, 25€ if you want to had the cheese).

We went for lunch on Saturday, 2nd of May 2015. Lovely restaurant but the staff seemed overwhelmed. The food was also 50 minutes late and not what we ordered. We ordered the cheese plateaux and the total price was 70 euro for 2 persons (the cheese was 15 euro/person). I want to believe it would be different on a normal... More

Located on a long boulevard. We stayed at the Nautic hotel in the same street: 10 min walk. We liked the atmosphere of la Bouée: small popular restaurant-tavern with nice local suprising cuisine and affordable price.

You could just eat the first plate and stop eating the main plate because you have enough to eat and with a good quality. But you continue to discover the other delicious plates. And the atmosphere is very nice. We were all very satisfied with our lunches.

This is a small, family run restaurant on a main street away from the glamorous sea front establishments. We were a party of two and opted, unusually, for a set meal rather than the “a la carte” menu. We chose the 25 euro menu which consisted of 4 courses (entrée, main, cheese, dessert.). Our choices included oysters & crevettes, sole... More

Just outside of the main centre of Arcachon, close to the fishing port, this restaurant is worth a visit, it certainly seems popular with the local residents. It's more attractive internally than the facade might suggest. The maritime décor is clean & fresh and the general ambience is good. We were offered an amuse bouche of an absolutely delicious tapenade... More

Excellent restaurant, reasonable prices, great service. We went for lunch, they have a nice table d’hôte. We were a party of three, two of us had lobster as an entrée that was very good, then as a main course we had la côte d’agneau, that was cooked as ordered,and was tasty. The other party had Cod, also cooked to perfection.... More
