We were out walking and wanted to stop for a hot drink (it was January). This is clearly a bar, where people were having drinks. However, we arrived just as they were setting the tables for lunch and we were refused drinks as a result. I might understand if they were preparing for a lunchtime onslaught but the place was...

Deciding where to eat in Saint Jean de Luz is not easy as there is so much choice. Were so pleased to drive past Le Bar Basque and decide to give it a go just because there was a parking space outside and it looked pleasant enough. It turned out to be wonderful. The waiter was witty (we are English... More

The choice is not very large but the food is very good and fresh. Children menu is perfect: home made fries and home made chicken nuggets! We really enjoyed the place and the very kind service.

I have been here before and found the food to be fairly average. I stopped with family and friends and my kids today to have a coffee and look into the lunch menu. We we were left waiting so long we went somewhere else. The owner seemed so uninterested.. that when the kitchen opened he sat to have a lunch... More

The staff only spoke french, the toilet area was creepy and not very clean. The food was fairly good and they served it fast though. Expect about 25€ per person

We were walking along the streets of Saint-Jean-De-Luz during the afternoon hours, and just wanted a drink and something light to eat. We also preferred outdoor seating as the weather was beautiful. However, many places were already closed. Luckily we found this place. We had a couple of glasses of wine and something light to eat out on the terrace.... More

Charming (at least) bilingual service, excellent creme brulee, followed slightly small/simple boeuf straganoff - a few bits of meat of varying degrees of tenderness and 3 boiled potatoes. Beautiful to sit outside in the sun, albeit sharing crowded pavement with pedestrians and their dogs.

First visit to saint de Luz. We stopped for tapas here first which was excellent and great value, then came back for dinner as the ambience was perfect for us - a relaxed bar/restaurant. The gambas with garlic and whisky was amazing - soooo tasty (whisky and cream gave a taste almost like mild curry with a kick) and gambas... More

Very nice friendly restaurant recommended by our host. Many places close on a chilly January night. Fairly basic inside and not too warm, but with a glass of wine inside it began to feel better. Good menu choices of meat and fish - I had delicious duck and my wife had salmon. Wine by the glass or bottle. They do... More
