So Biarritz was a last minute lunch stop during our drive from Bordeaux to San Sebastián. Having never been to Biarritz before we were not sure what to expect. The city turned out to be a pleasant surprise on every level! We walked around for a while and then decided to stop at the Bistro 2 Genies for lunch. And... More

We were searching a nice and quiet place to have a good dinner and we checked in this gourmet restaurant. Good choice: small glass on sangria offered, good appetisers-try prawns salad, three or four choices for main course for fish lovers or meet ones. I appreciated the calmness of this place and the short table visit of the chef who... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and couldn't have been happier. The service was outstanding, as was the food. Complimentary amuse boche of a breaded chorizo and a shot of sangria were a lovely tough. The soufflé and the cafe gourmand are a must. If you are eating after 8pm a booking would be recommended as we saw many being turned... More

Stumbled across this place with my husband and we were very pleasantly surprised. We just ordered two mains and a dessert. While waiting for our mains we received two very tasty mini chorizo sandwiches and a large shot of quite strong Sangria - this was a really nice touch - a pleasant change from getting a basket of bread. Our... More

If you visit Biarritz you really must try this restaurant. The food is superb, the presentation of the food is extraordinary and the chef and waitress are extremely friendly. We loved the attention to the smallest details which were the norm. Lots of good restaurants in Biarritz, but they all serve similar food. This place goes the extra kilometre to... More

Appealing tables and décor. Pleasant waitress (owner?).Excellent service. Typical Biarritz prices. We went twice : one outstanding meal (pork), one not so good (red mullet, maybe just not to my taste). a quieter atmosphere, one really good wine (2005 Medoc 22 EUR) one not so good (2008 St Emilion Jurat 38 EUR -thin, no taste!). Well worth a visit. Much... More
