This restaurant should be rated much higher! On our tour to Espelette, we stopped in a local pottery store in the town and asked the owner for a recommendation for lunch and she recommended this restaurant.

We chose this restaurant because it seemed nice, but we were totally fooled. The menu was outdated, and what was ordered from the menu was no longer available. In the end, we were forced to order things that were available, things that did not appeal as much as the items on the menu. There was absolutely nothing without meat, which... More
