The food is simply delicious and local : You should try : - Les huitres (oysters) - Les couteaux - Le merlu à l'espagnole - le fromage de brebis et sa confitures - les pintxos People are lovely. The atmosphere is great. The food is amazing : local, fresh, generous... A blast. Run there for the real Biarrtiz experience!

Been there for many years on and off. Good authentic food and friendly easy going service. Very popular both with locals and visitors. Not easy to get a table. No reservation but staff names the wait relaxed.

We went there randomly for dinner and shared a large grilled fish with some side orders. It was the best fish I have ever tasted. We would really recommend this place. The waitress and service was also excellent!

I ve been going to this place for over 10 years every summer but this time it has simply sinked very low: tapas of very bad quality, not fresh ingredients, very bad service, unreasonable pricing!!! If you order a ricard they give you a pastis! Very rude staff. 6 sardines for 14 euros! 2 euros each tapas mainly with bread... More

I highly recommend this place for lunch, dinner - or even a quick glass of wine. It might look overcrowded at arrival, but the staff is very nice and effective. We were seated within five minutes on a busy sunday afternoon. The food was impeccable - french cuisine at its best. Great for all kinds of people - from big... More

Tried the oysters (small but good) + the 1€ tapas selection menu. Good value. Extremely busy on a saturday night but staff is friendly. Outdoor is recommended.

I shared a table with some very nice people and enjoyed a relaxed meal of tapas and Sangria. This is a wonderful place to get a taste of real local food.

We sat down yesterday to have a glass of wine and have a look at the menu. A brunette waitress was very nice and brought us the menus to have a look -no English versions available so it would have taken a while for us to translate them. About one minute after we had gotten the wines a blond waitress... More
