Real in the center of Bayonne I've been there many many times. Good food with some influence of local and traditional food. Nice meat. Really good wine. Sometimes just a bit expensive but is not an average place.

We are in Bayonne a bit out of season and this is one of the fullest of several restaurants along the Nive and for good reason. Very good not over elaborate food. Chipirons and a large serving of Bayonne ham shared as starters followed by Pintarde with Girolles for main. We saw fresh Girolles in the market. All really good

We were advised to visit this restaurant, and the food was quite ok. We wanted to sit outside as the weather was still nice. The smokers wanted to do the same and made the environment not good at all. The food was actually quite good, but I would have appreciated more contact with the waiter. When we had finished our...

Needed somewhere for four children and three adults to eat. Most places in Bayonne full, but we were accommodated inside. Good service. Childrens meals excellent and very promptly served (just what the children needed!). Adults all had fantastic steak and frites - beautifully cooked steak.

Had a great meal here whilst visiting Bayonne on business, very reasonably priced and the Creme Brulee was top notch.

Bad service, unfriendly staff ( quests are more for disturbing the staff than an income or pleasure for work) Pity they gave this advertisement for Bayonne.

We sat outside this restaurant but we could see the kitchen from the pavement and it was clear that the interior had been tastefully refurbished. For main course my wife had cod and I had lamb sweetbreads. Both were good portions and very tasty.

The place is very nice, the staff is gentle and careful (they made me a vegetarian dish even if the menu there aren't veg plates!), the food is very good and the choice of wine are great! It was lovely had dinner here, the view on the river is romantic and the atmosphere is quiet! Very suggested!

Poor service, too salty food. Never to come back. We're restaurant lovers and had many good experiences in restaurant in France, since we used to live in this country (we speak French). Overall of our dinner life in France, this place was the worst. We stayed a few nights in Bayonne for our vacances, dropped in to this place because... More
