We had the best dinner. Great atmosphere, good waitering, the meals are big and the food beautiful and fresh. It's an intimate yet relaxed and casual ambiance. We are still talking this morning about how good our experience was!!!!!

I found several good reviews of this restaurant on the net and so whilst in Biarritz we decided to try it out. The location is in a quiet residential area of town, away from the buzz of the beach, with relaxed locals going about their...More
