a brand new venture in Guethary replacing the pretty average "all you can eat" Ximist.
Complete overhaul and redecoration with plenty of outdoor seating and a light and airy interior - and only opened in July this year
Fresh fish and seafood (landed in St Jean de Luz just down the road ) beautifully prepared and presented.A small selection of meat dishes available too.
We had a platter oysters and ceviche of dorade with avocado and grapefruit as starters followed by hake with a "concasse" tomato sauce and seared tuna pieces with a light but tasty dressing. Cheeses and an apricot clafoutis tart for sweets also great. Wine very reasonably priced and we had a really good Madiran red.
We admired the size and content of the "plateau de fruits de mer" being served to other diners and had our visit not been on the spur of the moment , would have ordered them - next time perhaps ( They do the fruits de mer as a " take away" too ordered from the bar area)
Despite it being an out of season Tuesday night there was a nice atmosphere and the staff friendly and cheerful.
