This is a simple bread and crustacean hideaway. The menu is simple. We have 12 oysters and a small bottle of wine. The table next to us were eating whelks and prawns that looked equally as delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant. Do NOT go...More

Nice marine-located place to have oysters and wine right on the sea shore. Simple and authentic. Been here twice for oysters and bulots. Just loved the place for its simplicity and silence - to enjoy the day and privacy

this was our favourite place in Arcachon, even though my wife does not like oysters. It is just a little hut selling the oysters and other shellfish they have harvested; the oyster bath is alongside the tables. You can also enjoy prawns, clams, and bulots...More

If you are looking for oysters straight from the place where they are harvested, this is the place. No fancy white table cloth here! The choices are mostly about the size of the oysters you want to eat... The setting is rustic, quaint and out...More

Bonjour J'y vais prochainement avec une amie qui n'aime pas les huitres et crustacés, contrairement à moi. Ce restaurant propose t'il des poissons ? Merci de votre réponse
