Typical restaurant frequented by locals. The menu does not change often but the dishes are delicious made with the products of the region. The daily's special is at same level with a very affordable price

We could not fault the location on the terrace at lunchtime where it was cooler or the food which was excellent for us and our teenager children but the person who served us (female) was extremely rude and arrogant, therefore the service was "crap".

Le Clos Basque, Biarritz - lunch or dinner - a favorite of mine. Outdoor seating under the shade, small intimate restaurant, families know the owner and chef and visa-versa, a long term success, excellent wine menu, overall very good value. We've visited as a group...More
