6 of us called in for lunch durign a rugby weekend. - the cafe is jsu twhat we were looking for. Typical French style. Three of us had the Assiette de jambon ( bayonne ham) and three the terrine de campagne - then we had...confit du canard, merlu, burger tartineflette with frites and croque monsieur again with frites. When th emain courses arrived instead fo the burger they brought the boudin. This was for the youngest in the group and you could see his face fall when he saw the black pudding. We expaliend to the waitress and they changed it immediately land it arrived in a decent time. Puddings ranged from creme brulle, mousse au chocolate, the cheese and the cake of the day which was a lovely apple and caramel cheesecake. All washed down with good house wine and beer.More

This is a very extrange place, please do not waste your precious time and money here. The location is fabulous so we sat there and asked for a beer. The waitress comes with a menu and an old woman starts screaming "they just want to...drink, they do not want to eat!!!" whereas we were looking at the dishes coming out of the kitchen. We managed to get a menu because the food looked great, and it was great. The young waitresses are ok but overworked, we wanted to have some desert and coffe, but it was virtually impossible. We had to pay in the counter like having to ask for mercy on our lives.More

This is a typical lunch restaurant in a prime tourist location.... Beautiful surroundings and foul food. Could not recommend. Burger was greasy with tired lettuce. Croque Monsieur was this enormous flabby thing on a plate. Very unpalatable. Toilets very old and dirty looking - right...beside the kitchens.... Felt a bit uncomfortable about that but had already eaten - or at least tried to. Strange service - place virtually empty but wanted us to sit in a corner of the terrace rather than in the middle? What was that about? Anyway, if you are eating lunch in Bayonne it seems there are better places to spend your money.More

We were attracted by the "6 oysters plus a glass of white wine for 8€" sign (in French). We sat outside until the cool breeze drove us inside, and had a wonderful time. We started out with those, then moved on to rations (Basque-influenced small...plates) with more wine. All delicious, with very friendly service that accepted our shaky French and offered good advice. Highly recommended. It's beside the cathedral, hence a bit removed from the restaurant area down by the Nive, but it's worth finding.More

Visited a couple of times for drinks. I did have some fries on one occasion but others with me ate more substantial meals (moules, burgers etc.) and said it was very good. Lovely location next to the cathedral and the entrance to the cloisters. Great...service from a friendly Israeli waitress.More
