The meals we had were well cooked but a little under expectation considering the price charged; lacking substance. Maybe we'be been spoiled by the quality of food we'd had in more down to earth beach side shacks but on a relative comparison I have to rate this place as so so.

First evening we had the dinner menu, great value for money. All courses were excellent and me and my 10yo daughter both appreciated a lot. Next evening we came for the aperitif and enjoyed the tapas: highly recommended the camembert rôti and flambé au Calvados.

just off the village centre and tucked in a side road towards the sea , this small restaurant was highly recommended by local friends - and we were not disappointed ! A set menu with four choices each of starter , mains and desserts might seem limited at first glance - but what is served is a delight - both... More

The menu was perfect, not too much choice but a very unusual variety, every item on there was special. The food looked like works of art and tasted AMAZING! The service was fantastic, the manager was really nice and made our evening even nicer. A really special place

Our Hotelowner recommanded us this little restaurant and and we enjoyed very much our dinner. Small but interesting menu, everything homemade and the quality and freshness of the dishes is perfect. The young and pleasant team does a very good job.

We chose this restaurant after looking at the menus of all the others in this charming basque town. This one had deserts with some originality. We were pleased we booked; by eight thirty on a Saturday night at the beginning of September, the nine tables inside were full. The menu limits its offers to four each of starters, mains and... More

A really enjoyable evening on the terrace of a lovely restaurant. The service is really friendly and efficient and the food creative and cooked to perfection. I'd have no hesitation recommending this restaurant to a friend.

We went for this following the glowing reports and had a mixed evening. The service was good and the food generally hit the mark apart from a beef steak which left my jaw aching for hours. The menu changes each month and for 3 courses costs 29 euors. You can opt in and out of courses but with starters at... More
