    Le Kajoc: eating at beach lacanau

    by gwened Written Oct 7, 2014

    This is our favorite restaurant for years coming in summer vacation with the family here in the Médoc at Lacanau Océan.
    Since 1964 all homemade and great seafood with wonderful views of the Atlantic ocean.
    open Mondays to Sundays from 09h30 to 22h30

    It is right in city center by the beach facing the ocean, on a dune with the best terrrace in town. The bar panoramic is wonderful too for an apéro or drink before meal. The night with the waves falling is very romantic I said.

    Other than the seafood/fish, the product cook are of the Sud-Ouest or southwest of France , of course our favorite.

    you have great reviews at Michelin in French

    Favorite Dish: menu du jour always the freshest and plat and dessert from.20€ for lunch can't be beaten.

    great parrillada of fish, mix fresh great, or magret de canard the thigh of the duck with honey sauce or the wonderful lamb confit with caramel spices and fine ratatouiille our favorites.
    cannelés bordelaise typical sweets of the area or the dessert of the day.

    for dinner the 30€ menu of entrée plat and dessert is tops.

    Boulangerie/Pâtisserie Le Sarment: great bargains at the boulangerie,Gan

    by gwened Written Aug 23, 2014

    On the road in France I go thru many many villages towns, cities, sometimes alone and others with the family, restos are nice but food in France is sublime anywhere if you know where to look. This one was a find, I will be back on my rounds...

    This time we were at Gan for the caves de jurançon wines we decided to go over the bakery or boulangerie next to them, here is Chuchi, the owner. The sandwiches are a work of art, the sweets magnificent and to have it all better we ask the cave to open a bottle of cold wine for us, so we had a grand picnic on the outdoor benches of the bakery.

    You don't need to be at the caves, passing by and visiting Chuchi will be enough. It is right on Avenue Henri IV Gan from Pau on the N134 follow direction Gan Centre just before the by level road that takes you further into Oloron Sainte Marie.

    The bakery is pack of sandwiches, breads, croissants, pain aux chocolat, and various sweets such as those with almonds and chocolate.

    nice stop.

    Favorite Dish: croque monsieur with honey and ham bayonne and goat cheese (brebis), almond cakes, ,breads, and the wine from the cave a rose Oh Biarnesa. great!

    The square and cafe are following the tradition of the visit here by king Louis XIV to seal the boundaries and treaties with Spain marrying a Spanish heir Maria Teresa.

    A red wall in the background, outside a small bar and on each side, 2 wood walls animated large ice on which appear, chalk, the proposals of the moment: the wine by the glass of course, we are in a wine bar, but also with tapas of beautiful quality and when you see them through their small plates or shellfish mouth watered immediately.

  • L'Assiette Gourmand: Fabulous food along the Dordogne

    by wandw Written Aug 30, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is signposted on the D29 near Alles sur Dordogne (about 20mins from Bergerac). It had a charming garden and lovely decor and very friendly owners who insist the kitchen is open at all hours. The food is all top quality, locally sourced specialities and it was all delicious.

    Closed Tuesdays, no credit cards.

    Favorite Dish: I had a tapa of black pudding with onion chutney, foie gras then confit of duck breast. It was very rich and extremely tasty.

    L'Oasis: Friendly local and good food

    by nhcram Updated Apr 16, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came in here on a freezing cold January night as nowhere else was open in the area. We were greeted by the owner and a couple of his friends. The restaurant is large and more like a cafe than a restaurant as it was brightly lit and had little atmosphere.
    The owner however was a lovely guy who made us very welcome and the food was superb. Well presented and freshly cooked food it was certainly a place we will go back to in March when we visit the area again.

    Ok we came back last week and had lunch on the last day of our short break. We got to the restaurant at about 1pm and without offering us a menu they proceeded to dish up soup, wine, water, followed by duck with pine nuts and lettuce. Then came steak in a pepper sauce, french fries and fresh veg. after came 7 different types of cheese to choose from and as if we didn't have any room a dessert!!!
    A family run business that we will go to again in June. It is worth going to the area just for this restauarant.

    Favorite Dish: The first time we came here I ordered the asiette de crudites and my friend had the mozarella and tomato salad to start. I then had the steak which was tender and cooked to perfection. My friend had the omelette. We were also gave us some pumpkin soup on the house which was jolly tasty.

    Soooo cheap. L'Oasis in a blizzard!

    Le Chat: Good food, but mind the cats!!

    by nhcram Updated Apr 8, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This lovely restaurant is set in a medieval town called LIMEUIL. It is a town where the Dordogne river meets the Vezere river.
    The town has limited parking. It is a popular town with tourists because of it's beauty. Set on the banks of the river Le Chat is a lovely restaurant. The hosts are welcoming and friendly. The food is of superb quality. It is like being at home.
    The only problem for me was that there were cats roaming around. I know it s not a problem to a lot of people but I am scared stiff of the things!!! After a while the lady did actually move the little b***er that was pestering me and I was able to relax.

    Favorite Dish: On this occassion I had a pizza which was so fresh and full of wonderful vegetables and mozarella. Chris had a truffle omelette and my friend had pizza too. You must try the ice creams if you come here. They are truly scrumptious. A good bottle of wine to complete the meal. Will definitely go back there in June.

    La Bodega: Cosy local bar

    by nhcram Updated Apr 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although this is a Tapas Bar the feel was very French indeed. We ate here twice as the friendly atmosphere drew us back.
    It is a small bar that seemed to be frequented by locals. It is run by a husband and wife team and the tapas were of very good quality.

    Favorite Dish: The Patatas Bravas and the Tortilla were very tasty.

    Restaurant l'Abbeye: Comfort & great food.

    by andrewwhite Updated Dec 10, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Garlic potage
    Salmon salade
    Grilled steak
    Cheeseboard
    Ice Cream
    Bottle of vin du pays Bergerac
    Coffee & armagnac

    33.5 euros - thats 23.00 Great Britain Pounds or $44 to our American friends.
    As the food was delicious, the service prompt and the ambience warm & comfortable, I think this would be difficult to beat for value.

    Favorite Dish: I will admit to a tremendous liking for Garlic potage, simple dish but unbeatable when done well.

    Delicious

    Au Bureau: Al Fresco Eating

    by nhcram Updated Sep 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Had a really lovely meal in the city of Bordeaux at this large restaurant.
    It was busy but the waiters were still very attentive. The food took a while to arrive but it was worth the wait. The place was clean and the food was reasonably priced.

    Favorite Dish: Having seen a pizza on someone else's plate I had one too and it was very tasty. My husband had the salad which had duck and livers in it. (not my choice but he loved it!!)
    Washed down with a couple of beers it kept us going for many hours!

    Concorde Restaurant: Restaurant on the edge of the city.

    bArriving in Bordeaux after an hour in the car we needed a coffee and this was the first place we found. We only had a coffee but the food that was being served looked excellent and well presented. The staff were efficient and friendly.
    A three-course lunch is €15.00, which I thought was good value for money.
