We had a lovely stay in The Grand Tonic Hotel in Biarritz. After a dull day where we walked all of Biarritz - along the prom to the old fishing port and back through town - with a stop for a real hot chocolate in Miremont (founded in 1872 - the real thing) delicious! Back at our hotel we met Gaeton the Maitre d' who showed us the menu and prepared a perfect Piña Colada for me and a Gin and Tonic for my husband while we made our decisions for dinner. Decisions made and drinks drunk we retired to our room for a spa bath to refresh us further for the food ahead. We were not disappointed. To start my husband had the charcuterie plate and I had a salad of tomatoes (which the chef had gone to the bother of peeling!) with asparagus and smoked anchovies and tiny squares of goats cheese totally delicious - especially if you share! For mains my husband had the Saltimbocca de Lapin (rabbit ) and I had the Poisson Jour (scallops on a bed of leeks) Perfectly cooked. Cheese to follow with a plum conserve and to finish a chocolate plate - just gorgeous.
All iof that washed down with Bordeaux Chateau Seguin. I did have a glass of Seguin Sauvignon blanc with my scallops and it was perfect.
Great hotel to stay in, very central, and a great restaurant. We did meet the chef after the dinner and congratulated him on his food.
