Honest food for an honest price, you have a menu at 26 eur , appetizer, main course and desert. I had a velouté of green peas with a touch of mint, haddock, and a chocolate dessert which I preferred to be endless, my compagnion had foie gras , merlu and risotto and a basque cake .Please do not forget to...

We went for a birthday meal. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The menu is not huge because this is genuine inventive cuisine based on the best locally sourced ingredients. So many restaurants in France serve the same old dishes - Le Clos Basque is the opposite - virtually everything was new to me and will be to you... More

This was among the least expensive meals we had in France but was one of the best, with a good value house red wine. Service was spot on and a nice ambiance to the place

This restaurant is sensational. I had the foie gras terrine to start and the braised pork cheeks for main course. I was there in a group of four and we all tasted a little of each others meals. Every single meal was divine and I would have been happy to eat any of them. The fish was incredible fresh, the... More

We visited this place as we were in a rush to go somewhere and saw Tripadvisor had recommended the place. The hours say they open at 12. My wife and I were there at 11:55 with another woman and waited for it to open. Since we had to go back onto a bus at 12:45, we stood in plain view... More

Make sure to make a reservation as the place is always full. We found this place thanks to a reference in a Michelin guide book. It has a lovely interior with a few tables (7 or so) and a terrace. The food was quite artistic, beautifully presented, the wine list quite extensive. I had rolls stuffed with crab meat, risotto... More

Had lunch here on final day of our Biarritz holiday. Lovely little place; pretty outside dining area which, unfortunately for us was already reserved for other diners. Beautiful food, elegantly presented. Service very very good; waiting staff worked very hard and were very professional and skilled in their craft. Very good wine selection too; highly recommend that you make time... More

With its tiles and exposed stonework,hung with abstract art,this place could be in Spain. This Basque kitchen is known for its savory offerings and regional specialities. Check out one of the best fish dishes.... a local Atlantic whitefish,known as Maigre. Fresh sea bass and scallops feature frequently on the menu. I love the codfish platter with choriso and artichokes for... More

This place has fantastic food! My husband got the scallops and I got the prawns and coscos- both dishes were cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. It was my husbands favorite for the whole trip. Our outdoor seating was lovely although there was some ongoing construction across the street that did take away slightly from the experience (but of course the... More
