Love food ?

And what if your stay in Arcachon was a gastronomic break?

A gastronomic blend

Endowed with a wealth of culinary influences, the cuisine on the Bay of Arcachon is inspired by both surf and turf. It is authentic and traditional for enjoyment and conviviality, drawing on a generous local terroir and unique know-how. The delicious regional gastronomy has been relayed by successive generations of fishermen, farmers and shepherds throughout the years.

In Arcachon, gastronomy is part of our heritage

During your discovery of Arcachon, you will discover a destination rich in tasty, local products.

On the ocean side, with 80 km of coastline looking onto the Bay of Biscay, restaurant tables cultivate an ode to good taste thanks to local products which come straight from the ocean. If your plate is garnished with fish and seafood with their sea-fresh flavours, the real star of Arcachon Bay is the oyster. The best way to enjoy them is to stop at an oyster farmer’s cabin and eat them sitting with your bare feet in the sand!


For fruits of the soil, you will be surprised by the number of specialities on offer in the Bay of Arcachon. All you have to do is wander around the Baltard Market Hall in Arcachon to understand the subtlety, wealth and variety of products coming from the Landes and let yourself be tempted. For eating in Arcachon, there is a multitude of traditional restaurants, which for the most part are very typical but which co-inhabit perfectly well with pizzerias, Chinese, Japanese or exotic restaurants for the pleasure of our taste buds!


Advice to wine lovers! The vineyards of the Landes – Tursan, Chalosse and Bas-Armagnac – the Médoc and the nearby Bordeaux appellation, reserve wines of exceptional colour and aromas. Taste them in the wine bars, wine cellars and restaurants of the Bay of Arcachon.

To open your appetite, you can try the tastiest of our specialities at the markets, in pastry shops, and restaurants or during a village fête. Their sweet smell will certainly come and titillate your nostrils.



Season after season, let your self be guided by your flair and curiosity!
