J'Adore San Clemente
We are a family business, established in 2017 in France. With the first restaurant in Biarritz and the second in Anglet, both in the Basque country - the mecca of surf in Europe.
We are recognized by the Paris gastronomic guide
“ Le Fooding ” 2018 - 2019 as one of the 800 best restaurants in France.
" Le Petit Futé 2017 - 2018 -2019"
It is the union of knowledge and passion between a Nutritionist-Chef de cuisine and a Master Sommelier, both passionate about traveling and food; hungry to know different cultures, flavors and surf spots.
Following our heart searching for a new place, we found San Clemente, this beautiful town, where J'Adore Café will remain a cozy place, and will offer the community a high vibrational experience with organic and high quality ingredients following seasonal menus.
Cooking is an act of love. It is sharing feelings, energy, and using wisely the ingredients that Mother Earth gives us to nourish bodies and minds.
With love, Tai Carballo
