My partner had the seafood platter, which was excellent - very generous serving of mussels, prawn, king prawn and Norwegian lobster, very well cooked and presented.

Great restaurant find in St Jean-de-Luz. Mainly a fish menu, with a nautical theme.

I've never experienced such poor treatment of fish and seafood. All deep fried to a cinder (even mussels) and at least half a litre of oil on the platter. Not for me thanks
