We went there for the view, which was nice indeed, but the food was just terrible from start to finish. I can honestly say that this was one of my worst culinary experiences in France yet. Even Flunch is better, perhaps even McDonald's. An insipid...More

The food is typical of the restaurants in Rue de la Republique and is largely fish orientated. The location at the top of the road offers a great view of the bay of St.Jean de Luz, but a window seat can be a bit hot...More

Saint Jean de Luz is filled with side streets and little shops. We passed by this restaurant by accident and thought we should try it out. The staff were so friendly, a good atmosphere, and the food was good. I had the Carpaccio and it...More
