Delicious supper with friends

We found this restaurant after happily wandering through the streets of biarritz. With 10 in our party, we easily found a large table outside and quickly chose our food. The waiting staff were attentive, friendly and quick considering it was a busy Friday night. I had veal with aubergine parmigiana... read more

We started with tasty grilled vegetables, followed by delicious homemade pasta, with lobster for my wife and vongole for me. All accompanied by the very reasonable house red. Excellent value!

I dined here several times . the food is always fresh and the greeting usually comes with a smile. while it's difficult to find good dinning in the summer at BIarritz. this place delivers in spades!

Had dinner here with the family and I must say it was top notch. Service was very good, young waitresses looked after us well. I had the steak and the wife and kids had the meatballs. Although a small menu everything on it looked good from what I could see of others and people were not leaving anything on the... More

Restaurant recommended by hotel staff for Italian. Located in les Halles area, good atmosphere and excellent food. Server was not the most pleasant but still enjoyed our dinner and experience very much. Would go back again.

Really enjoyed our meal, two courses, 5 of us for Euro 125 including a lovely bottle of Lambrusco. English speaking staff who had fun with us and made us feel welcome. True Italian food. Recommend, you can sit outside or in, take a light top if outside as the wind can flow up the little roadside and make it a... More

My family and I dropped into this restaurant on a Saturday night without booking; I think this was part of the problem. We were shown to a table with high bar stools that backed onto the staircase- this was clearly impossible as one of our party is 8 months pregnant and showing quite obviously. After some fuss was made we... More

We enjoyed this good family restaurant close to the markets in Biarritz. The owner was was very much in evidence and was very helpful with explaining the menu. It was full the Friday night that we were there and it appeared to welcome children. The service was good without being obtrusive and there was a very good buzz there. The... More

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
