Tried the weekday lunch menu in mid-September. Overall very satisfying but slightly disappointed as a Michelin-starred restaurant. The mi-cuit fish dish as the starter was impressive, duck as the main course was well-executed, and the chocolate dessert tasted like heaven. Food-wise the experience was excellent....More

Excellent food in a welcoming atmosphere. Food obviously very fresh, well prepared, with a presentation you would expect from a starred restaurant. Staff was very helpful and helped translate the couple items on the menu I didn't recognize (in Basque). Recommended.

This was one of the best dinners we had while visiting the area. Nice charm of an old building, excellent food, good service. We ordered tasting menu and it was worth every penny. Definitely plan to visit if you looking for a gourmet dinner.

This is no doubt the best restaurant in town. Service was impeccable and the Chef deserves his reputation (and his Michelin star). The children had their own menu, but were offered the pre-starters to match with the gourmet menu we had.

Kaiku is to my mind the best restaurant in Saint Jean de Luz. It is expensive but quite reasonable given the quality. The atmosphere is refined but laid back, certainly not stuffy. There is a very good wine list with lots of reasonably priced choices...More
