We ate once here. We both had oysters which were lovely (you can have 6,9, or 12 at roughly £2-£2.50 each). I also had a nice seafood salad, my other half had an avocado salad. Nothing particularly special about the food or venue. But the staff were friendly & helpful. N.B - They do a delicious hot chocolate!!

The weather on the day we elected to take a day trip to Pau turned out to be dreadful, so by the time we had struggled to park the car, we decided we needed to eat and to avoid getting even wetter than we were already we headed for the first place we could see through the gloom and this... More

Just nice to find a super taverne which offers such nice cocktails which are mixed properly! We stopped at Les Relais d' Alsace to get some well deserved drinks after a long day of travel. The waitress was very friendly and served us very quickly. There was a good range of drinks available but I was particularly happy with my... More

The food here was good and well presented. I am pescatarian, so I was delighted that there were so many fish options, and they came well cooked. Portion sizes are appropriate, and the food came out sufficiently slowly that we could have a long leisurely lunch and take in the sounds of Pau. I don't feel like we need to... More

It's a good location and that's what brings the people. If you're looking for a good meal I'd give this one a miss. It's more Focused on location and watching the world go by. My main course was average and the vegetables had seen better days. My accompanying (miniature) glass of wine arrived after I'd finished the meal and was... More

We used the Relais d'Alsace twice whilst down in Pau. We are an English couple who live in France and we have used the Relais d'Alsace in Niort and Poitiers as we live inbetween the two places. I have to say that this one in Pau was probably the better restaurant out of the 3. The staff were friendly and... More

The first time I had dinner here, I can say I enjoyed the food. We had some mussels and marine salad as appetizers. As second dish I had confit du canard, which was the best I ever had in France. On one of the wine glasses, we found some snots...yes, snot! But I thought it was an isolated event...I thought!... More

Mussels overlooked, and thankfully tasteless. My 17 year old daughter needed help cutting her steak, but without a chainsaw not even the muscular man at our table could cut it. The wine seemed reasonable in price but arrived in a two ounce glass, again we were thankful that no more was provided. So many better places to eat in Pau.... More

One star, just because it was the only place open in Pau for food at 5:30pm. The food was easily the worst I have eaten at a restaurant anywhere! Sea Bass stuffed with fennel...the fennel clearly from a very old jar/tin, stank of old oil. The fish beyond chewy and a long time dead, frozen, cooked, frozen, cooked...The service was... More
