“Tapas OK, wine so-so”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The tapas are really good, the quality of hams, cheeses and foie gras being excellent. The place is nicely situated at a corner and the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Service friendly and effective. Just the wine was not their best, but we did enjoy our quick meal anyway.

“Stopped in for drinks...”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

While we were waiting for a table at a local bistro, we stopped in for a quick drink. On the good side, it's really popular and gets busy - and has a great atmosphere. It seemed that this bar and Bar Jean on the other side of the market were always stuffed. The wine was lovely and reasonable. However, service is spotty at best and depends on who the waiter wants to natter to next. This isn't moan-worthy, to be honest, as it's all very charming and they will help you if you need something quickly, but don't turn up expecting flawless table service.

“The ideal bar”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The perfect bar wine,food and a counter (good weather required). Tell them what you want and they hand it over. Selections of tapas are great didn't figure out a menu or the food choices but loved it just the same

“Great spot for champagne & tapas and friendly locals”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Our first visit here we were had great bubbly champagne and tapas, met local people and had a great time. Our french was limited but everyone was very friendly, we met the owners and had a lovely evening. I would say this is a must do in Biarritz!

“Outstanding; one of our favourite places”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

we loved this place; so simple and unprententious. It is very busy in the evenings. The food and wine on offer is first class yet very simple. A wonderful place to stand back and enjoy the locale.
