When you live in SW France you don't want to eat duck all the time so when I was looking for something a bit different I found this on TA! The ambience is like a kasbah cafe with draped voiles, bright colours and fretwork screens. The welcome and the service is effusive and genuine. The food is simple and very... More

The food is simple but lovely and the option of different levels of spiceyness means its great for everyone. The real treat is the mint tea, which instead... More

This restaurant is great all around. Being from the middle-east, it is as close as you can get to middle-eastern food in Pau. While some dishes are altered for Western tastes (as it often happens all over the world) it is still very good. You need to make a reservation because it is very busy. The prices are excellent and... More
