Charming staff. great set menu and also wonderful seafood. Really recommend the tuna and the seafood platter. I'm ashamed to also say that the chips were the best in Saint Jean de Luz. Classy, I know!

Enjoyable lunch on a very hot day but inside the restaurant was cool the set menu basque style was more than enough for lunch with a good local rose. We arrived at 12.15 about 1/3 of tables were taken by 1 pm it was full.
