This is a really small coffee shop with a paradoxically large terrace, which occupies the area around the coffee shop, as well as part of the square in front. It's situated within walking distance of downtown, but its location makes it a much quieter place. Ideal for coffee and relaxation. It overlooks the beautiful market square and good prices, which is much appreciated.
The Corsaire Saint Jean de Luz is THE rum distillery in the city. It has a real pirate environment, its roof looking like the hull of an overturned boat. And of course, it offers cocktails galore ... made with high quality ingredients (excellent rum!) and in all colours It has other beverages, too, including fruit juices, and more. It has a great reputation, and the terrace is always full ... being able to find a place to sit can be tricky.
You can find fresh products from the sea and the Basque Country here. The simplicity, the friendly service and the intimate atmosphere make this restaurant worth a visit. It is also close to the harbor and the bustling streets of San Juan de Luz so it´s easy to have a great time while you´re here enjoying the delicious food.
In the heart of Saint Jean de Luz, between the church and the beach, this small, there´s a small Italian restaurant highly recommended for its price and quality. Very good pasta, risottos, pizzas and crêpes. There are only a few tables but you can take it to go.
The Ongi Ettori is one of the many restaurants in the old town. Don't be dissuaded by the sign outside, which suggests it's just a simple pizzeria. The pizzas are certainly excellent, but the menu offers plenty of other dishes, and a great combination menu at a very reasonable price (about 15 euros). On the terrace in front of the restaurant you'll find a real holiday atmosphere, while out back things are more relaxed. Friendly staff.
