We passed this restaurant as we walked into town, checked the menu and carried on thinking that this must be the Biarritz "standard". (We were mistaken and it took us a while to back track our steps and locate it again.) This Italian restaurant served a fabulous luncheon menu with French flair using fresh produce to deliver innovative quality. Each... More

I found the food in the restaurant very poor and the service was equally disappointing. for the cost of the meal I would expect more.

The service was terrible and the food was cold. We waited 35 minutes for cold, probably microwaved, food. Avoid at all costs and go down the street to find not only a better selection, but a tastier menu.

I have no idea what the food is like, but a bad business practice, wasting taxpayer money suing for a bad review instead of dealing directly with the reviewer, should keep everyone away.

We picked Il Giardino for our last dinner in Bearritz before we leave tomorrow. Italian is a safe choice with kids, and we were all completely satisfied with real fresh and well-tasting dishes. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Out of the main tourist area but worth the walk. Menu was great with various fresh pastas. Even better was the attention to detail by the friendly staff.

After many days of Spanish and French cuisine, this restaurant was a nice stop for reasonably priced good Italian food. The pasta was extremely fresh and the gnocchi was delicious. We would definitely go back!

Ate alone (first night in Biarritz). Bit of an argument with the waitress to start - wanted to eat on street but tables cleared away at 11pm (it was 10.30pm) so I asked if I could have a glass of wine outside at a table for the half hour left then come in when my food was ready - she... More

Recommended to visit while in Biarritz and well worth going there. Food was great & well priced, staff never stopped smiling even through it was very busy the night we were there.

I was cruising the area around Les Halles looking for a nice restaurant when I stumbled upon Il Giardino. I did my fair share of menu reading before settling on this spot. I'm glad I stopped. The place was hopping, but they seated me immediately and took great care of me. The menu is reasonably priced and offers enough variety... More
