The restaurant is located next to the River Nive and there are tables available outside if the weather permits. The décor can best be described as modern with no frills. There is a bar within the restaurant area making for a pleasant ambience.

The food is fresh and of good quality. We found the portions more than acceptable. The menu is quite extensive and most people should be able to find something to their liking. There is a reasonable selection of French wines with some Spanish at al levels of pricing.

Staff were pleasant and attentive and the service efficient without being overly so.

We wanted a taste of this lovely French city of Bayonne so decided to cross the border from Spain to spend a couple of hours to explore a bit.

After reading reviews of Le Victor Hugo, we decided to try it and did not have regrets. Everything from the staff service, location and the tastiness of the food was all positive. My only advice just to spare you a couple euros, is that before ordering (bottled) water, just ask for the tap, which they automatically bring you after a while. They may delay doing so immediately, as most people tend to order water as soon as they sit. The region's tap water is very good and in my opinion equals that of bottled water or may be better. Try it first.

We've had our eye on this restaurant for some years, but before this trip have not got round to eating here. What a treat we've been missing! We stopped by for lunch (our favourite time for a main meal) mid-week and luckily, arrived early, at 12.00. Within 30 minutes, the restaurant was packed. My husband ordered the trio of cheeses which came simply sprinkled with walnuts and accompanied by cherry conserve. I chose the La Bergere salad, which comprised a generous salad with goats cheeses wrapped in bacon and baked. It was fabulous: a lovely crisp Sancerre and a beer to finish off a great experience. Charming staff and a lovely table outside in the warm sunshine. A high point of our trip.

This restaurant has a bar which adds to the atmosphere, and it is also possible to sit outside, Each time we have been - as a couple and with friends we have enjoyed the experience. The staff are friendly, good service and attentive. Thoroughly recommend it as a mid range restaurant.

We had a lovely meal on a freezing night in Bayonne, We wanted fish and were told by our hotel that there were few restaurants serving fish in Bayonne which was rather odd. Too cold to walk around searching, we went into Le Victor Hugo as it was the first decent looking restaurant we came across. We all selected the set dinner (good value at 18.50 euros for 3 courses) in which there were 2 fish options and one meat. We all had fish and it was very well cooked and attractively presented. Service was very good too.
