A potentially perfect meal was almost ruined by the waiter. This retaurant has awesome food, incredible view of the ocean and has good parking spaces, which is a luxury in this small town. A little bit pricey (food was worth it) but the waiters ONLY Speak french and do not make and effort to communicate. We spoke spanish, english and portuguese in my table and communication was almost impossible. Service takes our rating from 5 to 4.

We loved the friendly welcome and the oversized fresh sea-food platters. We also enjoyed a delicious soup de poisson (fish soup with special rouille sauce), crayfish, ham, a sea-food paella and finished off with their marvellous strawberry tart (which has to be reserved in advance). A great atmosphere with a very decent and unselfconscious clientele.

It is a nice place, on the row of the old port, well attended, and with a very good sea-food, cheaper than other places, and with very good quality. Fantastic place for a dinner.

Been eating our way through spain and portugal and by chance happenned upon this place. The seafood is amazing as is the pork, which is the best i have had. I found the service great. People might resent the fact they dont beg you for your business but hey, they dont need to, there wasnt an empty table on a rainy monday night. Best meal i have had over the last 3 weeks.

We were only in Biarritz for one night and wanted a solid meal and by chance heard of a seafood restraints my called Chez Albert. We struggled to find it but tucked away down near some beautiful Coast line and small ships being docked but this absolute gem. It was cram packed but once you taste the food you know why. The freshest seafood we have ever eaten, service was fantastic and for a packed restaurant actually very fast service. Not too fast that you wonder how but quick enough that you know your in an establishment that knows the score.

We tried four different dishes and all were literally mind blowing. While fish, platters and smaller cuts of fish... And let me give you a hot little tip... You will not find a restaurant that does creme Brûlée or chocolate puddings like these guys... Even their homemade strawberry tart had me drooling.

They are basque and they are proud and if this restaurant was in Sydney you would wait months to get in.

Map it, mark it and if you have to beg to get a table do it... Because this is food the way it's meant to be, in paradise.
