Set amongst the dunes right on the ocean, in a largely residential area, this restaurant is in the perfect location for eating great seafood, cooked perfectly, and presented with a true understanding that we eat with our eyes.... Perfect seafood ... my Sole was sublime, as was my wife's John Dory. Everything we had was excellent. Staff were super professional,... More

We took the crustacean menu which was great. The crab dish and the lobster were exceptional. The shrimp dish was rather small and the plating did no justice to the dish itself. The grapefruit-strawberry dessert was a perfect ending to a rather well balanced meal. We had some issues with the service though. The waiters were not exactly knowledgeable about... More

My wife and me go out for dinner without the kid rarely, so we carefully select the restaurants where we spend the evening! Jean des Sable, has been a very good shot! We enjoyed everything: The environment is quite, but informal. Sober and elegant, but not too much_ We both are vegetarian, so we choose 2 vegetarian menus... Amazing! Unforgettable... More

We celebrated a family birthday here on a recent trip to Hossegor and were not disappointed. My husband and i had enjoyed a meal here last year and although the menu hadn't changed enormously in that time, we didn't mind as it was still delicious. The waiting staff were all attentive, polite and spoke good english, and were knowledgable about... More

Went here with a group of English business men, all spending really well and looking forward to our alleged first class dining experience! The staff ignored us for 20 mins and didn't acknowledge us or ask up if we'd like a wine order! We ordered the top priced menu which was at best average but thought it was far better... More

Totally unexpected format on this little desert.In contrary to ocean waves and wind super peaceful and slow food place.Recommended for homards and enormous starters.Beef as a main dish absolutely perfect!Better not to waste time for fish (sole is just correct with a lot of smoked flavour).Perfect place for a romantic dinner.

Fantastic food, high level of service and a well balanced wine list. A very nice experience in terms of gastronomy with superb flavors. The location right on the beach is pretty cool and with a bit of luck you can have a nice sunset...

I really enjoyed the vegetarian menu: superb flavors, new and delicate tastes. I'm not a wine expert, but I really liked what we drank: really pertinent with what we were eating. The location is perfect. I vote just 4/5, cause it's too expensive. I feel bad givin 5/5 after a huge bill.
