We ate here last year when attending the Lacoste Ladies French Open golf tournament and had a most enjoyable meal and were happy to go back again tonight on our last night before heading home. I give it a 5* rating although it is hardly 5* cuisine but it is just one of those places that deserves a top rating... More

On a day trip to the French Basque countryside from neighbouring San Sebastien, we decided on this unpretentious looking restaurant which served up French food along a row of restaurants offering a combination of Spanish, Mediterranean and French dishes. We were tres happy with the outcome. Most of us opted for the value Euro 19.50 3-course set lunch with about... More

Arrives without a reservation and ended up having a great 3 course meal, good value, great cooking and staff polite and helpful. Try a carafe of house Sangria - great taste

Restaurant off the main roads with very good food served by two busy waitresses. Great to be eating in a restaurant full on a Sunday night. Don't forget to try the house Sangria - absolutely delicious!

We ate here recently. Food was of mediocre quality and greasy. Beef was tough and fries limp. Salad was small and worst of our trip. I would not eat here again due to the overall poor food quality.

On our last evening we were looking for something warm and welcoming. A lovely find - a long narrow room, like a cave with old stone walls, with about 40 covers. Only two staff but they were very good and service was prompt. We had the E19.50 menu, which had a good selection of dishes. G had the moules in... More

Very friendly waitress, welcoming and with good sense of humour. Food was very good and typical of the region. Restaurant not large but in good position just off the main square. Decor quite quirky. We ate in the evening but lunch menu looked good too.

Arrived at restaurant just after 7:30. We're not served our one course ordered dinner until after 8:30 of Dorade Fish and Gambus Grille or shrimp. They literally forgot us. I finally signaled Maître Dee at about 8:15. He looked startled, went out to kitchen and 10 minutes later the dinners came. Then the young waiter denied the delay and said... More

I stopped here overnight before catching the ferry from Bilbao, and won't be visiting the restaurant or the town again. All places looked quite expensive here, and our group of 4 friends just took pot luck here. The name of this place at least does give a clue as to what the staff are like - I could understand the...
