We had a great meal eating Sea Bass and Cod that was beautifully prepared. The service was great and we managed to get a table on the terrace for the early sitting on the night without an advance booking. This was the best fish I had in Biarritz.

We have been coming to Biarritz for 14 years and have only just found this which is a great pity but gives us a good excuse to make up for lost time. Wonderful small restaurant beside Les Halles, characterfully decorated in vintage advertising posters and a friendly colour scheme. Some of the best simple food I've had in this town... More

Spoils for choice with a number of interesting looking eateries, and perhaps due to the fact that on a Wednesday many places were closed we plumped for this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised to find the food was very good. Good fish or meat choices. And an excellent wine list which the man behind the bar was happy to help... More

Good traditional basque food, well seasoned in good portion in a very warmy atmosphere. Traffic is stopped in the evening so the restaurants can put tables outsides witch make a large terrass and give you good space.

A good all-round restaurant with great food and friendly staff. We ate there three times in seven days which says it all, especially as the competition in the surrounding streets is so strong

This wonderful and intimate French bistro serves many of the classics, well cooked at an affordable price. The staff are friendly and the specials are always changing. We ate there three times while in Biarritz and will definitely go back if we are in Biarritz again. Recommended!

Friendly and efficient staff who were happy to translate into English for us when our French faltered. Excellent main of large prawns (gambas) for me and a whole sea bass for my husband which he thoroughly enjoyed. Atmosphere was relaxed with seating outside. We reserved a table which perhaps was not entirely necessary if eating at 7.00 but as we... More

We had read good reviews on this restaurant and called in to book a table for the next night. We made them aware at the time that one of us was a vegetarian and asked if they could cater for this and they told us it was no problem. However on arrival it was very clear that no provision had...
