Stayed in the flat above and as weather was atrocious took the nearest option for dinner as it had been recommended for its entrecote. Started with excellent oysters and then tackled the steak (cooked to perfection) with the locally renowned chips. Both exceeded expectations so...More

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
