We ate here the first night in Biarritz and what a good choice. Really friendly and efficient staff. We sat inside as rain was threatening. Lovely atmosphere. Food really good and had a super night.

Stopped here for starters as part of our own foodie tour and weren't disappointed....I had the razor clams that were lovely and fresh. We sat outside in what is quite a busy street for restaurants, so you can relax and watch the world.....great

Maybe not as hipp as many other restaurants in Biarritz, instead with avery nce atmosphere. The food was very good and not that expensive. The service staff were pleasant but sometimes a bit confused.

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....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.
