Every year we have returned to this lovely restaurant at least three times each visit to St. Jean de Luz. This year the menu was not up to its usual enticements. The cuisine seemed tired and no longer as creative. Hopefully next season it shall wear new clothes and be as exciting as it has been in all of the... More

This restaurant has either changed hands or has re-branded to La Boina.. Really cracking food! We've eaten there twice now this week and all 5 of us have had a great meal! We love it so much we've booked it for our last night meal too!
