My wife and I were tired after a days travel and an early dinner and into bed was our aim. We arrived at 7.30 thinking we would be the only early diners only to find that the restaurant was already half full! By 8.30 it was completely full yet somehow the two waiters coped superbly and were charming despite our... More

We arrived a few minutes before noon and were asked to wait outside until they finish their meal, which we understood very well. We then came back about 15-20 min later. The place is quite nice, right above the river. We got good food but discovered the stopper of a bottle of oil in a salad. No problem, probably an... More

Lovely restaurant along the riverside in the centre of Mont de Marsan. Several menus and a la carte dishes. We had a menu, very good food! We had pâte de foie as a starter, excellent! Also possibility to eat outside on the terrace looking over the river.

The service was really slow when we went, the quality of the food is good , we had a tartare that was nice and steak that was okay! We had a fois gras and caffe gourmand that were good. Nothing special i would not recommend it but the location is nice, especially the outside terrace in summer.

Le Bistrot de Marcel is an absolute must for anybody visiting Mont de Marsan. Excellent food, good service (for France!) and a great location. Make sure you book early and request a table beside the river.

The food was excellent, with emphasis on standard Gascon dishes. But the service was not adequate. We had to wait 30 to 45 minutes between courses, and some dishes were brought to the table tepid.

Excellent site in old building, with a couple of terraces, beside the river.,The local authority are spending a lot of money on enhancing and developing the riverside here as an attractive and usable space after already redeveloping the adjacent Theatre and Library area, including siting several sculptures - mostly nudes - by locally born famous artists. This area will become... More
