Desconozco cómo estaba la comida. Según entramos saludamos al propietario y le pedimos una mesa para cinco en correcto francés quien nos ignoró porque le interesaban otras personas que entraron después. Cuando le pareció bien, nos acompañó a una mesa donde nos espetó, en castellano...More

Just a quick 8 minute drive from the center of Biarritz is this wonderful little restaurant. It is about 100 meters from the Bidart beach and thus allows a before or after dinner stroll on the beach (we did both). The food, staff, menu, wine...More

Both fish and T-bone steak were very good. The mixed salad with gambas and roasted ham was simple and tasty. The owner visits each table and is quite friendly. At the last minute, they accepted to put a candle on a cake for a birthday...More

We had a dinner here, liked the easy going atmosphere and friendly service. Had starters and a big steak for two, all was tasty. Avoid their house wine which comes under their own label - it's a shame that in France they still offer something...More
