From beautiful and substantial strips of calamari to beef cooked in wine that just melts in your mouth, qualiticious meal. Served and assisted by Gaetan, he made our stay even more enjoyable and fun. Putting the fun aside for a moment, to us, the waiters appeared to take their job v.seriously, conscientiously, with the customer being foremost in their thinking.... More

Two visits to Saint Jean De Luz in as many weeks held a common theme; the restaurants you might want to visit are shut. The frustrations of French opening hours led me to Chez Kiko, a place I'd stumbled on for a quick drink on the previous trip. The fact that I was the only non-native French speaker in this... More

This is a very good restaurant, just off Victor Hugo, and an excellent place for a couple to enjoy a truly authentic basque ambience, and local seafood, with fine wines.

We had dinner here because it was very close to our hotel and read decent reviews about it. Unfortunately for us it was a completely tasteless meal completely lacking any spices, salt especially. For being one of the worst meals we had during our three weeks in France, it is extremely overpriced.

Lovely evening and we sat outside to take in the hustle and bustle. Not in the tourist part which was too loud and busy. Food was excellent and all local. Loved the wine decanters and made a detour from our trip to go and buy one from the kitchen retailer in Anglet!! Most enjoyable evening with very friendly and helpful... More

We had dinner outside in this restaurant....the staff was very nice and it was in a nice setting but honestly, we only thought the food was average. For the price, you can do better in Saint Jean de Luz....we did on other nights.
