Perfect sunny spring day on their patio facing the Atlantic Ocean and view of the coastline. Mussels with a cream tomato sauce and fries were delicious, fresh and plentiful. My wife had the goat cheese salad and loved it.

Dreadful place, staff couldn't care less and what food there was cold and overpriced.The position didn't help, as the strong wind whistled right through the venue.

My wife and a friend and I visited Saint-Jean-de-Luz while staying in San Sebastian. We drove out for the afternoon and were looking for a lunch spot that wasn't "touristy." After walking around without success, we returned to this spot we had initially passed and...More

We live in St Jean De Luz for part of the year. We thought we would give it another chance. What a mistake. The service was just as bad, more like the worst of Paris than the typical excellent service for St Jean de Luz....More
