Dinner, as always, was superb. The food is imaginative with tremendous taste. The local wines were wonderful. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful.

We were completely taken aback by our stay at this wonderful place! Located away from the frenetic coastal towns overflowing with summer crowds, the Auberge Basque sits quietly at the top of a hill with a gorgeous mountain vista and lush gardens to loll about in. The room we had was on the small side (one of the rooms with... More

Lovely location and grounds. Wonderful breakfast- but we did have to persuade them to give us breakfast included as we had paid for it and it was on our paperwork and not on theirs. I think we were given the disabled room downstairs. it was quite small and had rather a strangely organised wet room which didn't really slope to... More

Excellent service and food. Each dish had a level of 'wow'. The treats of the palette cleansers right through to the final course were beautiful. The teas were beautifully presented and accompanied. My advice is to get there.

We were expecting a good meal, but you surprised us with quite beautiful and wonderfully tasting dishes, a most delicious meal!!! We dined at L'Auberge Basque on the 15th evening of a trip which was a food and wine extravaganza ... mostly Michelin 1-star restaurants, and a 3-star. At L'Auberge Basque we had 3 of the most memorable dishes of... More

Our second visit to this wonderful restaurant was every good as our first last year! The setting, with the mountains and hills as a backdrop calms the senses as the sun slowly sets through the trees with the wide rear of the restaurant open to the elements. The staff are fun and attentive and the arrival of four amuse-bouches before... More

The food, the service, the location, the friendly staff, the wine. A unique dining experience. Let the staff choose your food. We did. It was the right decision

Impeccable food and service really made this a wonderful dining experience for us. I was actually quite surprised to see reviews here on TripAdvisor that were not 4 or 5 out of 5 but I'm very happy I decided to ignore them and try L'Auberge Basque firsthand. My feeling is that this menu might be too challenging for some diners... More

Tried different menus over a couple of days last summer. Not cheap, but def not the priciest either. Bechada likes to use some unusual and interesting spices to mix into classically styled dishes, and probably: so will you.
