We just happened on this wonderful small restaurant today while walking around Saint Pee Sur Nivelle looking for a bite of lunch. The "menu" on the chalk board out front looked interesting and the place was almost full. . . always a good sign.

We were welcomed inside by 2 smiling young ladies who explained our choices in excellent English. We opted for the set menu of an appetizer of prawns in a citrus, curry, coconut sauce . . . and a main of sauteed Salmon on top of mashed potatoes with cheese and a little Spinach. . . to "split".

WOW! We were most pleasantly surprised! Every bite was as good as dishes we've enjoyed in Paris, London, or San Francisco. A glass of good Navarra Rose and we were in heaven. . . with a total bill of less than 20 Euros! PERFECTION!

We were treated very well here and had a lovely lunch with fresh local ingredients. Some of the food is "tapas style" and really well-executed. They also cater well to families with children.

Our second visit. Service as good as ever. Surroundings are modern and clean. Lovely oil paintings on the wall. 2 muse bouche. Anchovies in a dressing and a tiny butternut squash soup with chestnuts, delicious. I had foie gras for starters, my husband had the cepe omelette. Both were lovely. We ate a la carte, I had a mixed fish dish for mains, my husband had the tournedos of beef. Both great choices. No pudding, but all washed down with a local wine.

Turned up as a six.... and they managed to fit us in round a couple of tall tables. Service was excellent, and they were happy to keep us using our poor French, even though their English was excellent. Started with one of each of the tapas, all of which were excellent. Followed by almost one of each of the mains, which again were cooked to perfection. Not a long list of options, but what there was, was cooked well and service was really first class... excellent !! Thank you

Great food from fresh local ingredients. The staff is very efficient and friendly, definitely a place I recommend.

From the fish from the Cote Basque, to the list call meats the menu varies with what is in season.

The prices are also very reasonable.

Bon appétit
