This a popular restaurant, and rightly so. We got there early on a Friday to ensure a table because we had not had time to book. Service was professional and friendly and food excellent. Clearly a favourite with locals. Highly recommended, central location.

Went in here on a whim as a solo traveller. The waiter translated everything into English and even got the dictionary out for the specials. Food was good and the atmosphere was nice and low key. Friendly and good value. Highly recommended.

We were given a warm welcome and a nice window table, where we enjoyed a delicious meal. For starters we split an order of sardines, which were served in the tin with good bread and butter. My...

This small restaurant served us an average to better meal. Our only problem was the rather soggy chips. Despite there being only one waiter, he coped easily with the customer numbers, and was friendly and helpful

We stopped at this friendly little bistro for a light meal one lunchtime on the way back from a walk around the town. Service was quick and charming and the food was nice, without being remarkable. But it was perfectly good for a small restaurant and has a decent seating area outside, which makes it an ideal place for a... More

We visited this popular restaurant several times. Tasty local food at all times of day. Very friendly staff who are always smiling. Popular with locals and tourists. Convenient for north-west beaches and town centre on a main route through town. On a bus route. Always plenty to watch if able to gat an outside table.

We ate here three times in the week to include lunch and dinner as the location was very convenient for out hotel "The Maitagaria". The service was excellent and the food was great. My pick of what we ate would be the baked white fish topped with chorizo and potato, fantastic. After this they were quite happy for us to... More

We had a simple lunch of salads with bread and wine. It was perfect and the service was attentive. There was nothing wrong at all. The larger main courses looked very good but we were saving ourselves for the evening.

We had a fantastic and romantic dinner here as a couple. We were sitting outside and had the waitress almost for ourselves, the service was excellent! We had a 3 course dinner and were very pleased! Fantastic wine and food! Nothing to complain about and if I ever go back to Biarritz, I would definitely visit this place again!
