Chez Kako is an institution in Saint Jean de Luz. Excellent quality simple dishes like steak and fish with some Basque specialities, using fresh local ingredients. Good service and a decent wine list. This is a regular haunt for good reason. A bit more expensive...More

A group of us had a very good lunch. The local hake is wonderful sprinkled with fried garlic and served with small Spanish green peppers fried in olive oil. The service is typical of a busy bistrot. The place is not quiet and it is...More

Vegetarian friendly. Very warm place! The food was really served well. The waiter spoke english so it was easy to explain what we could eat. Had rose wine, raviolli, vegetables. Their house fries were nice. Must have their dessert. Thank you team Chez Kako

What a great restaurant and lively and fun too, very busy on a Saturday evening. Well worth a visit with a wonderful selection of genuine Basque food on their menu. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in St Jean de Luz.

We picked Chez Kako after discovering it ourselves AND having the concierge at our hotel recommend it. We had been leaning that direction but the concierge's vote sealed the deal. We dined at Chez Kako for our first night in St. Jean-de-Luz and we were...More

C'est pas vraiment le genre de la maison , mais vous pourrez toujours vous faire servir leurs fameux "padrones", petits poivrons frits ou un carpaccio de tomates, coeur de boeuf et sa mozzarella di Buffala . Bien à vous
