Well worth a visit with friendly staff. Moules and salmon were delicious and with wine a very reasonably priced meal.

We sat there for 20 min without anyone even acknowledging us .... the rest no idea , since no one came to take our order I can't say much about the quality of the food and the rest

So sad to waste a meal out at this place. Terrible tapas plate for 10 euros. Great location, awful food. It's too bad you have to breathe second hand smoke the whole time while you are trying to eat. Overall, very disappointing.

Really enjoyed our lunch here feasting on Spanish style mussels and frites. Pleasant spot under an awning with view of the ocean and overlooking lovely carless square. Good value for tadty meal and very efficient service.

We sat down to a late late lunch / early dinner at 4:55pm, had our drinks by 5:10pm and our Plat du Jour (fish, 13.50€) by 5:20pm. The fish was wonderfully fresh and cooked perfectly, with some surprise moules. We switched out he baked potato for fries- which didn't seem to be a problem at all. We asked for some... More

The location is an advantage, all at all the service and the menu is not bad. Nothing special about the place, simply quite nice to enjoy the meal.

It is really difficult to find an awful place to eat out in France....well, this one has been the worst I have been in France ever....and I've been quite a lot. The waiters were inexperienced, it took ages to get what we have ordered.....the fish was disgasting, the mussels small and tasteless..... The children's menu was fine though.

Beautifully located in the square next to the church, with views over the coast and the sea. Super location for people watching. Food available from an extensive menu was fine and the staff pleasant.

This restaurant is well located in a square overlooking the ocean in Biarritz. We fancied a lunch and I opted for mussels and frites - everyday fayre in France. What can possibly go wrong? A bowl of mussels with about 25% of them unopened so inedible; and those that were open were so small it was difficult to discern any... More

This is a beautiful location next to the church overlooking the water. Location, location, location. For lunch order the plate of the day for 13.50 euros. The fish is fresh but nothing special. The steak is tough like most standard fillets in France? Our daughter ordered the salmon from the a la carte menu and did not like it. She... More
