Welcomed if I was coming every day, the staff is super nice and efficient. One of the best view of the Bassin. Then, you just need to enjoy the very good and tasty food that you have in your plate.

It's quite in September in Cap Ferret and not many places are open. We were happy to find Pinasse open, could sit outside with heaters on and had a great dinner with excellent service
