When I said it was not the best meals, for me all the meals are very good, tasty. very French. It remind me of the great little restaurants I found when I traveled in t.he French country side. The waitress is always in a good mood, always with a real smile.

If you like Basque Country foods, this is the place. Love the prix fixe at dinner time, portions are just right, never rush, lovely lovely staff, Linda in particularly. They surprised my son's birthday with a exquisite dessert at the end of the meal.

Sunday's here features a Prix Fix special menu, all is included for a great price. Food was just right, many choices for entree's and great service. Also, reasonable house wine including a half carafe, just right for two.

An Al Fresco lunch in the patio of Le Chalet Basque is as close to France as we can get without traveling across the Atlantic. The Lamb Stew, Paella, and soups are all wonderful. The service is European, efficient without being obsequious. The prices are reasonable and the food quality exceptional. There is no better way to spend a warm and sunny day in Marin County.

What a treat to discover this wonderful place. It is like stepping back in time to Earnest Hemmingway's collection of short stories written in Pamplona. Good house wines by the glass, great service and The Paia.... Delish! We also highly recommend the Salad Chalet Basque and Gambras Biscayana. Enjoy the open air cafe feel of Europe on the Patio.... Bueno Camino
