I recommend to go there with the kids before the Toro de Fuego. Hyper central and probably the best value for money you can find. The fish is very good. I think that St Jean de Luz is the largest harbour for Tuna fishing in...More

Spotted this place whilst visiting the port in the morning and decided to return for an evening meal. We were not disappointed. The queue to order showed this to be a popular place, paying beforehand unusual but made sense. We had sardines and salad with...More

Right in the St Jean de Luz’ fishing port. It is obviously a very popular local place to eat as on Saturday evening it was packed with both locals and tourists. We had to wait some 10 minutes to get in but that was mostly...More

Encouraged by other reviews we gave this restaurant a try -- glad we did! Very reasonably priced fish meals prepared by students from restaurant / cooking school. What the servers make lack in experience they more than make up in enthusiasm! Come early -- it's...More
