The amuse bouches set the tone a little and were a little disappointing by one-star standards. The champagne selected was exceptional, by a lesser known house. The Homard bleu was heavenly and succulent. The decor is artistic and simple. Service is polite from the chef's wife but the younger serveuses are less so. 4 course discovery menu E72 each plus...

An uninteresting yet overpriced menu for a backstreet restaurant that has not yet reached even the first rung of the ladder of its aspirations or delusions of grandeur. Starters from 20 euro, entrees from 30 euro and puddings from 15 euros, with wines by the glass a rip-off at 20 Euro and a stratospheric rip off by the bottle. All... More

This restaurant seemed to have a good reputation with regards to food, food was average, definitively not worth the trip, but besides the food, which is of course important in a restaurant, was a rude and very disappointing attitude of the lady in charge of the customers. Being on a strict regime we did not order alcohol (no wine, no... More

Went for my birthday on a Friday night with my wife. Had a starter of langoustines in pastry which were lovely. Main was semi smoked fillet of beef with roast veggies. Dessert was a very posh chocolate log with raspberry and beetroot sorbet. I loved the meal and it's obviously cooked with a lot of love. I would ignore the... More

This small but cozy Michelin-star restaurant was our choice during a business dinner on a slow Tuesday November night. It’s a bit off the city center but still OK to walk(15mins) and situated in a residential area. The food is what you would expect from a Michelin-star restaurant; creative combinations/cooked to perfection and excellent service. There were few things that... More

The restaurant is located in an attractive residential shopping area just outside the town centre but within easy walking distance. It's not large and just becoming established having recently gained its first Michelin star. It's run by a couple with the husband as chef and the front of house covered by his wife. The restaurant was full on the evening... More

The service was awful the food even worse... it tasted like it had been prepared from the day before and left in a fridge and served cold or luke warm.. I would avoid this restaurant.. There are many other restaurants in Biarritz... More

Great ambience and great food. This seems like a dream operation. Tables turned in the evening, consistent food delivered at a reasonable pace and a chef who knows what he's doing. Certainly deserves a Michelin star. Forget about "The worst dining experience in Biarritz..." more like one of the best! Great flavours and a great competence in cooking. Pigeon was... More
