Great location, great atmosphere, good, simple and traditional basque cuisine. You can not book a table, so be prepared to wait, especially when warm evening.
You'll have to wait at the outdoor bar - which is nice, but can add a lot to your bill.
We waited a table for 1h. But then, service was very efficient and very friendly despite the high level of work.
Recommended.

As all reviewers have mentioned, the view from La Plancha is amazing. The Atlantic ocean is right in front of you and when you catch a sunset it is breathtaking.

I wouldn't worry much about the restaurant not taking reservations: they have a nice bar with live band that makes the wait very enjoyable, although a tad expensive (all cocktails €7 to €9). Grab a magnum of rosé wine and be done for the evening!

The food itself is nice, with a good selection of sea food and fish. I wouldn't recommend it for meat lovers as there are only 2 or 3 meat main dishes (I had the cote de boeuf and was very happy with it).

The service is not as fast as one could hope for considering the price but they make up for it in friendliness and humor.

Depending on your mood, you can finish the evening with further drinks at their patio bar, or a romantic stroll on the beach, or party at the Blue Cargo (2mn walk up the hill).

Party of 6, had a great table outside with excellent views. We were even there to catch the views!

Food, mainly fish, was outstanding! Between us we had the scallops, king prawns, langoustines and John Dory.....all sublime.

Well worth it before partying away at the Blue Cargo next door

This lively restaurant is located right by the a lovely sandy beach with spectacular views of the Atlantic and depending on the time you visit brilliant sun sets. Menu is predominately fish - but for someone like me - unable to get realy goo fresh fish on a regular basis it was heaven. I started the meal with grilled sardines, then a grilled sole - both courses cooked perfectly. Service was very good and attentive. A lovely evening with delicious food.
