The Lycee Condorcet in Arcachon is a school where young people aspiring to be chefs and restaurateurs, receive tuition in this field alongside their traditional education. The school has two dining options a restaurant and a brasserie. Fortunately for us one of our young members is a student there
We have made a provisional reservation for 11:50 on Thursday 11 February at le Restaurant at Lycée Condorcet, 1 avenue Roland Dorgelès, 33120 Arcachon. This is a school for 15 to 18 year olds who are learning the restaurant trade, and practicing on real life customers! The reservation is for a maximum of 20 guests, and Sarah must confirm numbers to them by Thursday 4th February.
Our 12€ menu is as follows, wine is around 1.50€ per glass – incredible value. At our last visit the trainee chefs (and their tutors) did us proud.
- Moules farcies ou Tartare de poisson
- Poulet sauté chasseur gratin de courgettes et pommes noisettes
- Choux à la crème ou Plateau de fromages
After lunch, for those who are keen, and depending on the weather, we are planning a walking tour of the Ville d’Hiver.
To reserve your places, please contact Sarah direct (contact details are in the membership directory) or book online
Directions, arriving from Bordeaux: follow the signs to Arcachon and you will arrive at a roundabout with a tall, pointed, metal structure.
Carry on towards Arcachon and at the FOLLOWING round about, take the 4th exit – last one before you come back on yourself, after the turn-off into the flats, marked ‘no through road’. (also marked for the Lycées if you look in the right place)!
At the top of this road, you need to go to the left, BUT will be fed round to the right – you have no choice. So, go right, do the loop at the end and come back on yourself, pass where you entered this whole strange place in the first place, go up the hill and park. .
The Lycée will be over on your right – you’ll see the flags, it’s the end building on that side of the road. I don’t recommend you use GPS, it will take you a different, unnecessarily complicated way.
Please arrive at 11h50, we can meet at the front gate of the school, and go into la Brasserie for 12h
