“For fish lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

A Fish restaurant that was recommended by our hotel. Due to bad wheather we sat indoors which was unfortunate because the interior was a bit, how shall I put it, "heavy", the furnishing was old and not very comfortable. The food, however, was great. We had carpaccio on Dorado:( excellent fish perfect for this dish as well as many other), with the usual ingredients and bread. In France a dinner is never complete without bread. The main course salmon tartar came with fresh lettuce and some sparingly used balsam vinegar. Finally for dessert, crème brûlé, perfectly made with the burned top that cracked nicely when putting the spoon on it. We were recommended a white wine from a local wine maker, organically manufactured the "old way", banning the sulfuric preservative. the service was not in parity with the food, so our grading will be Very good.

“Midnight Fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Le galion offers quite a view of the Biarritz sea site. The dishes were full of different types of sea fruits, by the way they were BLOODY fresh!
We had a wonderful meal, I'd enjoy coming back in this restaurant and order all the things we didn't have.
Come and try!

“On the ocean front on a spanish vessel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Location, practicaly on the ocean front, is what attracted us to this nice restaurant, but the choice proved a succes... We had a menu Galion that included starters, an impressivly huge platter of sea fruits on ice (mussels, oysters, prawns and other creatures... all very tasty by the way), a delicious soupe du pecheur, mousse chocolat dessert and a bottle of Rioja Anares rose' wine for a very reasonable 70 euros. An absolutely recommendable dinner choice!..

“Always à good place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We are goig there each year, and it s always à good place to be ! I recommand to take the menu, you have the choice between something like 5 different dishes (starter,main cource, dessert).
The only thing which is not that good might be the time you're waiting ...
If you're lucky enough to have a table next to the window you will have one of the most beautiful view in Biarritz.
