The place is very nice but the service and overall quality of the food are rather low. We were seated without telling us the restaurant was going to close in 30 minutes. Maybe due to this, the waiter acted as not welcoming us. The food looks and tastes like having been just warmed. Desserts are nice.

On my way to and from Spain I stopped two times at Le Pave. Both nights I had great dinners. The reastaurant is cozy, elegant, silent: just in front of the Cathedral. The service is perfect, the food is lovely and the vine choice absolutely right. Not to be missed.

While visiting Bayonne, someone reccommended this restaurant and the food was excellent: I had the Duo de Rillette de Saumon et Avocat (salmon and avocado terrine) then the Carré d'Agneau en Croûte de Pain d'Épices and they were both delicious. My friends had the Pastilla d'Agneau aux Fruits Secs et au Miel(Lamb in brik paste) and they loved it. I... More

Fresh, made with love. FORGET all those crappy restaurants along the water. This will be one of the best meals you will ever find in France.

Eventhough we have very little French, the waiter was very helpful explaining what the dishes were. The food was first class. We spent two nights in Bayonne and dined here on both nights. It was excellent value for money 21 Euros for a three course evening meal and the food was of a very high standard. The apple crumble was... More

I came here for lunch largely on a whim, and it was a great choice. I got the 14€ plat-dessert formule. My plat--a fish dish--was a collection of flavorful, rich items. The portions were not large, but it was very satisfying. The desert was also good, but it didn't quite match the level of its presentation. The service was friendly... More
