Take a pleasant break at Pau's La Basse-Cour on your way to the Pyrenees. Here you'll find stylish décor, a lively atmosphere and wholesome cuisine celebrating famous regional produce from the land and the sea.

South-western hospitality is legendary, and La Basse-Cour is no exception. Settle in by the floor-to-ceiling windows in our elegant dining room, where midnight-blue armchairs complement the golden bronze of the columns. Or perhaps you prefer the pleasant shade of palm trees on the pool-side terrace? It's up to you!

To liven up your taste buds, our chef is inspired by local gastronomy, serving healthy cuisine based on local, fresh and organic produce. You'll be tempted by duck foie gras served with sweet pepper, a pavé of Patudo tuna from the Bay of Biscay or a Béarnaise burger made with Blonde d'Aquitaine beef, all flavoured with herbs from the kitchen garden.

Are you after a quick aperitif stop? Take a seat at the bar and order a mojito made with mint from our garden, accompanied by a plate of regional charcuterie or a platter of Ossau-Iraty sheep's cheese served with signature black-cherry jam. You're bound to enjoy it, whether you're with friends or family.

    (Translated by Google) This restaurant is good but nothing special. I took the sea bass fillet and my piece of fish was not of high quality. Cooking was average. The rest of my plate is limited to hot. For dessert, I had the gourmet coffee, and that was my worst disappointment, four little sweets fighting a duel… I even wonder if it wasn't frozen....

    I find that for the value for money, there is much better in Pau. In addition the server was alone that evening even if he was very nice and very professional the service was very long. (Original) Ce restaurant est bien mais rien d’exceptionnel. J’ai pris le filet de bar et ma pièce de poisson n’était pas de grande qualité. La cuisson était moyenne. Le reste de mon assiette limite chaud. Au dessert, j’ai pris le café gourmand, et ça a été ma pire déception quatre petites mignardises qui se battaient en duel… je me demande même si ce n’était pas du congelé. Je trouve que pour le rapport qualité prix, il y a bien meilleur à Pau. En plus le serveur était seul ce soir là même si il était très gentil et très professionnel le service était très long.

    (Translated by Google) The food was very ordinary, the fish was not well seasoned. The dessert was a tarte tatin and the pastry looked like it was store bought and undercooked. Our group still had fun! And the staff was very friendly and accommodating. (Original) La nourriture était très ordinaire, le poisson n'était pas bien assaisonné. Le desser...

    t était une tarte tatin et la pâte semblait avoir été achetée en magasin et n'était pas assez cuite. Notre groupe s'est quand même bien amusé ! Et le personnel était très sympathique et accommodant.
