“Gourmet, Gourmand and Gorgeous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

The best recommendation you can have for a restaurant in France is that it is full of French people. Sometimes it is so full that you have to wait outside, but you know it will be worth it. We were lucky; inside it is bigger than it looks and there were still some tables available. We opted for the cheapest set menu at an amazingly low price for three courses and added some good red wine, en pichet, at little more than it would cost in a supermarket. The menu was appealing, but the real surprises were the quality and quantity. First we got an appetiser that we were not expecting, and of course a bowl of bread. The mussels starter was the size of a main course. Likewise the herrings, served on boiled potatoes: a huge plate. The main courses were even larger: a vast expanse of veal, perfectly cooked, and the huge ‘piece of beef’ was as good as a filet mignon. And more bread! If only there had been a crème brulee or an isle flottante for dessert we would have given the establishment at least ten stars. In the event, the crème caramel was lovely, so it still gets nine. All served up by a beautiful and graceful young lady whose speed around the restaurant was worthy of a gold medal. Eat here and you won’t need any more food for days. And it’s right by the beach. What more could you want?

“Best value in bid art and the surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2012

You will park right next to the Beach park and ready for a beach stroll after lunch (or diner).
The 3 course menu for 11 euros is really good with local favorites and if you want to splurge, the 18 euro menu gets you all the good stuff such as foie gras and more.
Clean, good and affordable to go there instead of cooking. Outdoor patio sitting is available.

“Simply put - fab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

A beachfront restaurant that is just fabulous value for money, great food, great service and their squid beignets are to die for, dont expect fine dining but you can expect a warm welcome, terrific food, great value and a damn good night at a fraction of the price you'd find in Biarritz

“Brilliant value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2012

Great little find, with a view of the sea. The food and pricing reminded of everything ive come to love about French bistro / restaurants over the last few years. 11 euros for 3 courses, brilliant value. Speedy food delivery from excellent waiting staff. Food quality was good and in value terms was simply excellent especially when compared to other restaurants in the Saint Jean de Luz area. Couple that with nice local rose at 4 euros a half litre and we left very happy customers having spent less than 70 euros for the 5 of us.

Top tip - go early! We got the last outside table and were there at 7.30.
