“Small but excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

This is a tiny restaurant with a tiny kitchen but it's a gem. We ate there on the night we arrived in Bayonne and immediately booked to return a couple of days later. Run by a young couple her service was first rate and the food he produced, basically just on one hotplate, was tasty and well judged. The risotto ocean was creamy with plenty of seafood and the chocolate fondant was also well up to the mark. Portions are pretty large and we were advised to share a croustillant starter with ham and sheep's milk cheese. We also shared the fondant and with a couple of kirs, a bottle of wine from a short but reasonably priced list and two coffees, we paid 74 euros which we thought was excellent value. It's very informal and the tables are quite close together but good luck to them - they deserve to succeed. Best to reserve as they turned away a lot of people who hadn't.

“Hartelijk & Heerlijk (Chaleureux & Magnifique)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

The A Table team knows as no other how to prepare you a warm & pleasant stay in their cosy restautant! As advised by our Chambres d'Hotes (Poteau Rose), you will enjoy Wil's great cooking, based on perfect quality ingredients, and be served by charming Clair, while enjoying a nice view on the quays of the Neve river. We even returned two days later for another meal in this great small restaurant. Make sure you reserve a table in advance so you don't miss the opportunity!
A great Thank You to Clair & Wil for this joyfull experience.

“Excellent food, Excellent service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Just had dinner there with my fiancee. The food are tasty and yet extraordinary. It was fresh, delicious, and creative. They only have two people work in this restaurant. The lady, she hosts and serves, she was very nice and she took the time to explain to us the menu. The cook, he didn't talk much but he, of course, did a good job on the food.

“Warm and welcoming service and delicious food. Definetely The Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

The host is extremely nice and welcoming. You sit in front of the river. The decoration is cute. The food was just delicious. Risotto printanier or risotto with foie gras or again magret of 300 grams... If you want to eat in Bayonne , it s The place!!!

“Great Market restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

Great place. Very small and intimate, well iluminated with an open kitchen. Great fresh product cooked in a simple but very tasty manner. Not a long wine list, but good few references. Good choice while in Baiona.
