When we arrived the restaurant was incredibly busy but the staff and service couldn't have been better. The waiters were really sweet to our two very tired children, service was very prompt considering how busy it was. The food was good value and delicious - the mixed fish platter was fantastic and the kids loved their steaks. The chocolate liegois... More

Goodness me. One of the nicest meals I have ever had ❤️ Special mention for the razor clams which were amazing and the Brioche pudding which was absolutely beautiful. Yum!

Group of 9 visited this evening for what was our best meal of the whole holiday. All dishes cooked to perfection and service was second to none. Will be returning as soon as possible.

A happy discovery on a lazy Sunday morning, this restaurant offers a nice selection of fresh fish, shell-fish, beef and pork. Squid in black ink sauce and sweet red peppers stuffed with cod were delicious entrees and our main course was very tender pork prepared in a ragu sauce, but there were also fish soup with shellfish, sea bass and...

Lunch time at l'auberge, with two €23 menus. Had sangria, very sweet to our taste. Soup as starter was way too generous- main course literally became a "resisting course". OK overall, could do with smaller portions for their menus. Service friendly and could be perceived over-friendly for some. Much better places to eat in St Jean in our opinion.

The staff were polite and attentive and were able to translate the dishes. We both had 3 courses, the highlight dishes being a... More

very busy restaurant, where the emphasis appeared to be on turning tables around quickly. Food was average and expensive.

A one night stay in Saint Jean de Luz after a 650 mile drive meant we wanted good food quickly - we got Great Food and Great Service from a very busy team. The team speak English well and were very helpful in choosing wine to go with the meal and suggesting menu items. The food was very fresh and... More
