Vegetarian friendly. Reached their after a nice long walk of the town. The waiter spoke English so it was easy to discuss the dish of our interest. Best part of the lunch was that the waiter took it as a challenge to deliver a mouth watering dish. It was vegetables and exotic herbs. the dessert Dulche du leche was amazing.... More

We come to La Reserve every year to dine at Ilura or have lunch on the beautiful terrace with their magnificent seaview. Our latest visit, however, was disappointing. The offerings on the menu have always been limited, but delicious. This year we found the presentation continued to be spectacular, but the taste bland. As this is an expensive restaurant, the...

Stayed at this resort hotel, and didn't want to leave for dinner, even though St Jean de Luz is a walk or drive.

We stayed at the hotel and ate in their restaurant on a beautiful summer's evening. The location is very pretty - a nice garden overlooking the sea. But the food - it was exquisite. Every dish had a wonderful mix of flavours that seemed to work well together. One of our best meals ever.

We went for a Sunday lunch and had a great experience. The service was excellent and the view over the ocean breathtaking. What impressed us most were the fabulous flavors. The broths in both the entrées and the main courses where so complex and delicious. The strawberries in the desert where some of the best I've ever had. Everything is... More
