    • A love of oyster farming and the Bay of Arcachon

      Fred Bonnieu immersed himself in the world of oyster farming at the age of 15, and his passion has been growing ever since! As an oyster farmer, Fred is totally committed to his work, which is reflected in the exceptional quality of his oysters. His mantra is the quality of his work and his product. Fred uses a variety of methods to produce his oysters, but always in the heart of our magnificent Bay of Arcachon. Whether in sacks or Australian traps, the results vary in terms of meat content, but the taste is always the same. Thanks to his concessions at Pointe du Courbey, Arguin and Grand Banc, Fred can produce up to 45 tonnes of oysters a year.

      In addition to oysters, you'll find a selection of traditional shellfish on the menu, such as prawns, whelks, shrimps and periwinkles. But that's not all: you can also enjoy smoked trout from Geloux (Landes), desserts from the Marquet patisserie in La Teste de Buch and, for an exotic touch, try some fruit with your oysters!

      An added bonus is the presence of a vending machine just outside the tasting hut. This means that you can enjoy oysters at any time! These oysters, permanently supplied by Fred Bonnieu, come 100% from the Bassin. They are available all year and you can customise your order.

    Restaurant was recommended by the local campsite and did not disappoint! We sat outside by the water, a beautiful view. The oysters, prawns, bulots and pate were all superb, as was the wine. Very friendly people who run the place.... recommended!

    Lovely little seafood & oyster restaurant directly on the water. Kind, fast service, impeccable seafood platter, super calm location, reasonable prices. The Plateau du Grand Chef at 64 Euros: 12 oysters of the biggest size, 4 small shrimp, 4 big scampies, grey shrimp, two sizes of sea snails, lovely smoked trout. Comes with bread, butter, aioli and two glases of a local white wine. Good deal & delish! We’ll be back!

    Located at the end of the port, the restaurant delighted us with its seafood platter, prepared at the last minute. The oysters are very good. The welcome was very pleasant and we received good advice...
