The steak and potatoes were very good. My wife loved her tuna correctly seared. She liked her Julian vegetables. Good amber draft beer. Service was good.

I used to go to the Txalupa in St-Jean-de-Luz when I was a student, and, coming back after so many years, I was amazed to see that the quality even increased over years. Great seafood platters, along with so well recommended wines and very innovative...More
