Wifey insisted on grilled sardines. Three restaurants that had them on the menu but each said "Sorry". Here they had them. Now that would not draw me to the restaurant as there is more to life than grilled sardines...but how about house wine by the...More

24.50 euro menu - All very tasty and good size portions. Prawn starter and King Prawn main really good. Serrano ham starter was huge! We would certainly go again based on this. Certainly much better than many 'tourist spot' restaurants we have been to.

This wasn't my first choice, or even my second. First was closed, second was a good walk away and it was raining! I chose the 24.50Euro meal. Chipirons were OK, the Dorade was OK, rice was dry. Gateau Basque was OK. No didasters, but I...More

It is a great pity that our memory of the picturesque port of Saint Jean de Luz will be tainted by the unfortunate choice we made for lunch – Ongi Etorri. We both selected the 17.50€ menu, 3 courses each – that is to say...More

We dined twice at this restaurant during our recent stay, and enjoyed it very much. The staff are quick and efficient. I would recommend the Chicken Basque and my husband enjoyed the duck.

I ordered chipirons a la plancha - grilled baby squid- with a green salad and thought I noticed a bit of a smirk on the waiter's face. When he brought the food out the tasty chipirons came garnished with a decent portion of green salad...More

It was a sunny July day and we were feeling sort of peckish. Looking for a place to grab a bite we found this restaurant not far from the beach and in the centre of St-Juan-de-Luz. We ordered different dishes and I chose mussels. Quite...More

This is a bums on seats place which is to say there are enough tourists coming to St Jean de Luz for them to survive on a one and only visit. The set menu, while reasonable, is not well executed. On the plus side lots...More

Friendly staff and very helpful. My husband has had a recent hip operation and the toilets were downstairs. The staff were quick to tell us there was a toilet on the same level as were dining for him. There is a 17.50 menu or a...More

Starter of fried prawns nice enough but hard work. Sea bream cooked in too much oil. Friend's steak ok. Other friend had poulet basque which was copious but not that appetising. 24 euro menu reasonable but quality very average. Wine not bad, €17 for bottle...More
