This is the best restaurant that I have ever eaten. Quality, simple and authentic food served in an excellent atmosphere. I have been lucky to eat at many good restaurants including those with multiple Michelin Stars but Cafe des Halles surpasses all of these. I...More

There isn't a lot to say. The restaurant offers great bistro style FRESH food at very reasonable prices. Good selection of sensibly priced wines. Booking essential, space is limited. Service is friendly and for those who need it, English is spoken.

We were staying very close to this restaurant and it looked like a typical French bistros so we were looking forward to going. The food was very poor. My starter was terrible - trio of hummus, caviar of aubergines and tomatoe tartar. Only good thing...More

We stumbled on this little bistro when we discovered the food markets at Biarritz, it's just around the corner. The atmosphere is typical French bistrot, delicious food and even an English translation of the menu which helped my very rusty French, and the whole family...More
