Delicious

We ate here on a Friday night in January 2016 and although it was very quiet, the service was great and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We booked this online for a Sunday evening. The food was exceptional. My Between 4 of us, we had mixed orders of fish and meat based dishes and there were no complaints. Price wasn't cheap but I'd say fair for the quality of the food. Service was good as well, even though the restaurant filled up quickly. If you like... More

They said that they called our cell phone during the day and we did not answer, so they gave the reservation away. Fortunately we were able to go around the corner to La Goulue and they found a way to seat us. It is very busy on a Friday night in Biarritz, which is why we tried to make a... More

Popular restaurant offering imaginative food at reasonable cost. We had the three course table d'hote dinner on a Sunday evening. Stuffed squid for a starter, hake with squid ink pasta etc. as a main followed by a trio of desserts. Efficient & pleasant waiting staff. Good selection of wine. The local Basque red was recommended & appreciated by us.

This was the first restaurant we visited whilst in Birritz. Slightly of the main tourist centre but as Biarritz is so compact you are only talking a couple of hundred yards. We booked this through "The Fork" which this seemed to work well as they were expecting us.The restaurant was very busy and we were thankful we booked. The menu... More

The location is unpretentious, in a narrow side street close to the centre of town,and so is the interior - bare walls and polished concrete floors. The food, though, was excellent - beautifully presented and mouth-wateringly good. Each dish was 'introduced' by the friendly and efficient waiters. It was a meal to remember. We had mojitos to begin with, followed... More

We really enjoyed our recent dinner at Chez Ospi. The food was fresh, the fish perfectly cooked, and beautifully presented. An interesting combination of flavors made the crab ravioli outstanding. Our servers were friendly and very knowledgeable about the food preparation and wine. This is definitely a restaurant for foodies. The only drawback for us was that the restaurant is... More

Chez Ospi is slightly off the main restaurant track in Biarritz but we thoroughly enjoyed a high quality meal. The two brothers that run it have developed a well planned menu with good modern ingredients and presentation. Service is friendly but efficient and unobtrusive. You can book online which is an added bonus. We would certainly go back if in... More

Really enjoyed my meal here. Very happy to have been able to eat a delicious meal away from the main tourist drag. I had duck foie gras with peach confit which was amazing, followed by a really delicate fish on top of squid ink linguine with an herb foam. Superb.
