A visit on a very wet evening , not a soul to be seen on the way to the restaurant, albeit a wet Monday. We walked in the door to Chez Kako and that's when the cloud's lifted. In order of quality received: Service, food and exceptional hospitality. We arrived blind and left guided by the culinary expertise of the... More

Great ambiance and fantastic food, we had the côté de bœuf which is to be shared, make sure that you're hungry because the portion was generous to say the least, cooked to perfection and wonderfully tender, washed down with a bottle of Pinna Fidelis, a red Spanish wine from Ribera del Duero, which was equally sublime. I can't praise this... More

Went for lunch on market day. Place busy and, as we were eating in the evening, just had the plat + coffee. The food was very good, a tasty burger in a panino with tomato, onion and cheese, salad leaves, and good fries. With the coffee 11.50 euro each, a bargain. On the downside the place is small. We had... More

What a great restaurant and lively and fun too, very busy on a Saturday evening. Well worth a visit with a wonderful selection of genuine Basque food on their menu. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in St Jean de Luz.

We picked Chez Kako after discovering it ourselves AND having the concierge at our hotel recommend it. We had been leaning that direction but the concierge's vote sealed the deal. We dined at Chez Kako for our first night in St. Jean-de-Luz and we were excited to experience the place. The vibe is cool - bustling and young, with friendly... More

From beautiful and substantial strips of calamari to beef cooked in wine that just melts in your mouth, qualiticious meal. Served and assisted by Gaetan, he made our stay even more enjoyable and fun. Putting the fun aside for a moment, to us, the waiters appeared to take their job v.seriously, conscientiously, with the customer being foremost in their thinking.... More

Chez Kako is a very nice casual bistro restaurant in Saint-Jean-de-Luz serving Basque specialities. The food was very nice and we loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The service was very friendly and families were very welcome. A place to have lunch when discovering this resort on the French Basque coast.

Two visits to Saint Jean De Luz in as many weeks held a common theme; the restaurants you might want to visit are shut. The frustrations of French opening hours led me to Chez Kiko, a place I'd stumbled on for a quick drink on the previous trip. The fact that I was the only non-native French speaker in this... More
