Meal of the day was good value for money. Fresh cod steamed vegetables - very tasty. We sat outdoors and found the road busy at lunchtime

Passing through Bayonne we were pleased to come across Itsaski. Staff were really friendly and dealt patiently with our broken French. The food was great too, our lamb perfectly cooked. A well deserved 5 stars.

Called to make a reservation but the waitress who picked up the phone was utterly rude! Told me the restaurant was full and put the phone down on me. Poor attitude. Did not even bother to try..

I had some excellent veal and a "deconstructed" strawberry cheesecake, There's a fine wine list also....More

This is a friendly, smily, family owned restaurant. 15euro for today's lunch. We had a grilled pork with green bean source as a main dish with a pleasant river view.
