The set menu looked pretty good but we opted for the a la carte as we just wanted a main course and thought that by choosing from the main menu we would get a... More

I went there with my entire family since we were visiting Saint Jean de luz. We did not know about the restaurant. As soon as we entered we received a warm welcome.

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
