This place has been one of the best restaurant in town for years. Every time I come back to Biarritz I make sure to spend at least one evening there. Had a great time yesterday evening. Fish (merlu) was just perfect ! People very friendly and professional. Don't miss this place if you are in Biarritz !!!

It's okay - nothing fancy and nothing to write home about, but okay. I'm always amazed that visitors from overseas in restaurants like this never seem to get one of those small plates of olives before the meal arrives; everyone else seems to get one, but not us. Either there's a conspiracy or the service is inconsistent. However, wine here... More

We walked past this restaurant one afternoon & didn't give it a second thought as it was closed & from the outside doesn't look up to much -But later on in the evening the place was buzzing with people sat outside & the inside was a lot bigger than we 1st thought. It's all very rustic with a bar one... More

This restaurant is one of the best places we had for dinner!! Great ambiance, food and service! Everything was spot on. Food and drinks were authentic Basque. The anchovies entree was one of the best and fresh in town. The Cote the beauf was amazing! The decoration and art on the wall reminds you where you are: Biarritz- Basque Country!!... More

This is a fantastic little gem. The service is very good and friendly. The food is what food should be, simple yet deliciously seasoned. A simple menu but well balanced. The chuleta cooked to perfection (saignant), and the parrillada just perfectly seasoned. well worth a visit. you are advised to book in advance.

Do not be put off by the slightly downbeat exterior appearance of this Spainish style bistrot. A warm welcome followed by prompt and smiling service in this busy restaurant. As noted by others here the Cote de boeuf is to die for and the Ladies in our group were delighted with their fish. We will be back without a doubt.... More

Recommended by a friend, and given a warm reception on arrival. After a sangria overlooking the Biarritz plage sud just up the road, walk on down to this place. No mucking around, we were 2 hungry boys and were there to eat. Sharing a goats cheese salad and board of tomato bread with serrano ham went down well with another... More

This is one of my favorite places in Biarritz - great food, great people, great atmosphere, great value. Meat lovers will adore the cote de boeuf, for something lighter the fish is always excellent. Cozy atmosphere with long tables and benches so don't be surprised if you're sitting next to a stranger - join in and enjoy the moment!
