We ordered a fish soup...it even didn't look like having any fish. More like vegetables soup, with cheese and cocktail sauce...a mess. We ordered "Parrillada aux 7 poissons" not even one was good. There was more burned oil than fish. Just try a different restaurant. Avoid this!

On asking for a table for one and seeing several free tables outside the restaurant the waiter led me through to the back of the restaurant to a table next to the cash register next to the kitchen doors that was being used to store glasses and other materials. He moved the glasses onto a countertop next to me. I... More

There are so many places to eat here that it's hard to choose. We went in because the 20.60€ menu had food we fancied on it. The food was fine but the service was poor until it came to presenting the bill when suddenly the waiter was charming - wonder why! We have eaten at other places nearby and would... More

With so many restaurants to choose from in Saint Jean de Luz, decisions can be difficult. We ate here twice and would have returned if we had more time. After wandering the streets and beach on our first night, this was a perfect choice. We decided to spend our last night back there because it was so good. Service was... More

We stopped here for lunch and went with the set lunch. Food was great, wine was great and the service was by far the best! They were eager to help us in English and make our experience wonderful.

With not a lot of options open on Monday night, we ended up here given it was quite full and looked to offer the specialties of the region. We took the menus - one for 17, one 20€. Soup de poisson, Mussels were served nearly cold, both mains were very oily and the dessert gateau basque was very dry. After... More

We set down at this place as it looked so cosy, clean and a restaurant with typical food from the region. We had dorade and mussels and fries. The waiters were really friendly and gave us mussels with another sauce as we wanted to try another one than the garlic sauce. It was very delicious and presented in a nice... More

We had the menu Sympa as it had things on it that we both liked. Fish soup and whitebait starters were good. Sardines and veal stew main course also both good, although the stew had quite a bit of salt in it, which luckily I didn't mind. Had cheese to follow, which came with jam. Bit strange but didn't dislike... More
