Hippocampe is the more casual restaurant within hotel du palais. However I was under the impression that the food would be of the same high standard as dining in the hotel because the menu was exactly the same and the price was the same but the qualtiy was well below par. It is dreadful to have to share a dining area with people who smoke throughout their meals in a country where smoking is supposed to be banned in public places. Please please put a stop to this now and reduce the prices of your meals accordingly. I did complain last Monday and hope that you have taken note. Dissapointing to say the least. Also extremely noisy in Hippocampe and full of children wearing damp swimming costumes. You should NOT charge the high prices in here.

I was lucky enough to dine here at the Hotel du Palais in their Hippocampe restaurant (translated as "Seahorse").

Food was magnificent, especiallythe fresh fish including tender red mullet and the desserts were out of this world, all washed down with local Bordeaux reds and whites looking down the coast across Biarritz's beaches.
What a day!
