We shared starter of foie gras which was fine . Our mains however were very very disappointing .I chose hake which had nice veg but fish itself... More

Having found Baleak by accident, we were somewhat anxious about gambling on an establishment we had never heard of - it was worth the punt in every way. The service was prompt, friendly and gracious; the food was of excellent quality and really well presented; the surroundings and general atmosphere were elegant but relaxed. Overall, I would highly recommend Baleak... More

We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Nice decor , nice staff, good food, well presented and very fair prices. And last but not least, a must as desert is the <nems au chocolat>

Had eaten in this restaurant a number of years ago and it was very good but the experience this time was very different. Service was very slow and the food when it came was poor. The restaurant was busy with locals and visitors so the problems may have been a one off but could not recommend it on based on... More

We were slightly wary of this restaurant with previous reviews blowing hot and cold but, frankly, it was raining and our hotel was about 20 yards away so we went for it. I'm very glad we did! The food was delicious from start to finish- nothing too fancy but good quality ingredients cooked well and served in some interesting combinations.... More

Something different in Biarritz. Good meal, good service, just a little bit expensive, but the result is very very good

Ate by myself (friends tied up with kids). Great service and very warm staff but this meal was over priced and uninteresting. My starter came with a squirt of cream from a can (or that's what it looked and tasted like) and my duck burger was - well - average. Nice to sit out in the street and the decor... More

My wife and I were looking forward to dinner here after reading several positive reviews at TripAdvisor and elsewhere. While the decor is quite inviting -- with what looks like exposed stone walls and very effective use of recessed lighting -- we found the overall experience mixed at best. In part, this was due to what seemed like a staff... More

We stumbled upon this place on the understanding that the rue central had some good places to eat. We were pleasantly surprised, the atmosphere, the food and the service were great. The food was fresh, beautifully presented and really tasty. I would definitely recommend this place, for it's fantastic value for money vs quality of dish.

An interesting place from the imaginative décor point of view but the food we had was pretty dreadful. My wife and I ordered what was described a "rib steak" but it would have been better described as "old horse"! It was virtually inedible. We did complain but the same lump of meat came back in the same state and we... More
