Excellent food, wonderful service, lovely setting. Our table overlooked the ocean, the waitstaff was wonderful (our waitress spoke great English, very helpful as we do not speak more than a few words of French), and the food was definitely a 5! All for a very reasonable price. We were delighted with our choice of Txamara!

We had late night reservations at this restaurant for a group of 4. Make sure to reserve because they are very busy. Our table wasn't ready when we got there so they seated us in the lower terrace (ocean view) and gave us complimentary drinks till our table was ready. Had fish of the day which was perfect. Very friendly... More

We happened to stumble along Txamara on a walk to the coast in Guethary and saw the crowd outside the restaurant, so we tried it the next night and ended up going there every other night after that for the rest of the week. The staff is so attentive and caring, the food is spectacular, the views are amazing. Truly... More

Great view, great food. Small and very dedicated menu with herbes from the chiefs garden. I head a minced gaspacho and for the main course a regional boudin noir, perfect spiced. Service was great and personal.

Good location, food and service. Enjoyed the hake for two as a main. Some delicious entrees and desserts too. Nice atmosphere for dinner, overlooking the coastline. Ask for a table outside at the restaurant on the first floor above the bar,

We were on a marathon walk from Biarritz to St Jean de Luz and decided to stop at Txamara for a spot of lunch. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant serving food of this level of quality alongside a beach! The hake was fresh, simple and perfectly prepared. Service was friendly and prompt. And oh the views!... More

Everyone has already said it all. The food is excellent and the location just perfect for watching the sun set over the ocean with a chilled white! Go and try it for yourself!

We have been returning to Txamara for many years as a family and have always loved this restaurant. This time was no exception, I had the Fois Gras starter and my husband had the mackerel escabeche and then we shared the the whole baked merlu (hake) and everything was beautiful. The staff were also lovely and attentive and topped off... More
