The Italian food for both of us was excellent. The service was also very good and friendly. We returned a second time and thoroughly enjoyed both our visits. With Chez Albert our best experience in Biarritz.

Always a pleasure to eat here. Starters of carpaccio of beef followed by linguine alla vongole and tagliatelle with squid in ink sauce, washed down with the house chianti. All excellent - and a bill of less than €70! Not to be missed!

Nice place and very popular with locals. Food is really good. Mozarella soft and tender with excellent flavoring. Rich seafood soup with shrimp and clams and fish. Pastas are nice, risotto was a bit overcooked but still good. Good italian wines and delicious tiramisu. Nice service.

Lovely location in the old town, nice Italian service and food. Recommend the clams. This is best part of town to eat on an evening

Good fresh cooking made to order with quality ingredients for an authentic Italian flavour. Set menu lunch option and reasonable menu choices and a decent quality option by the glass. all at fair value

When you feel like comfort food, this is a good place. Honest Italian - no frills. We shared a chacuterie and cheese platter then had pasta each both fine. Staff quick and friendly. Place was packed with locals by 8:30pm - always a good sign.

Poor service. Forgot to bring one of the starters and had to wait an unacceptable length of time for the main course. I noticed that service staff paid less attention to those sitting outside probably because they are more likely to be tourists. Would not recommend this establishment.

My friends Steve and Ama had treated me to a couple of nights of their garden to table cooking at their home in France so I was a little spoiled before we arrived in Biarritz. I had instigated the trip to Biarritz so I was a little nervous about taking them away from their home produce and inflicting restaurants on... More

We started with tasty grilled vegetables, followed by delicious homemade pasta, with lobster for my wife and vongole for me. All accompanied by the very reasonable house red. Excellent value!
