A very good location at the end of ilbarirz beach. The food is excellent and the ambiance cool and trendy. The young waiting staff are very friendly and make the whole experience excellent. The oysters and seafood platters are very good as are the home made hamburgers. An essential part of any holiday on the core basque

Ate there last night on the recommendation of a local friend. The environment is super chic but the food really is terrible. The chipirons I ordered came with big slices of ginger and garlic and were not well prepared. The tuna main course also lacked delicacy and came with poorly prepared and presented vegetables and the dessert was rocky coconut... More

Amazing set up, lounge style towards the beach and restaurant at the top. Great sharing concept for all the food. Good selection of wine and cocktails. The only disappointing part was not having the late night dancing due to the council restrictions which have come in recently.

This restaurant has the best view in Biarritz. It is on the coast and for a Saturday family lunch venue, it was superb. The children's meals came promptly. But the special fish of the day ( tuna/ thon) was undercooked. Three of us did not finish this dish. They then offered as a special treat, two other dishes that were... More

This is one of the best beaches in Biarritz. The bar area is cool with music/DJ's but the plastic seats are sticky! The restaurant is of a reasonable standard for the price, the staff are friendly and helpful. A good place to relax.

We visited during one of the particularly warm days during August when it was 37C in the shade. We sat outside on the terrace and it was very warm especially when the sun dipped down and could shine into the dining area. Service was quick and professional.

The food wasn't bad, nor the service, but mainly you pay here for the view - which is marvelous. Both of the sea and the people.

It's cool and laid back. Great location on the beach. Food is good - brasserie style and reasonably priced. Not a bad way to pass the day.

Wonderful location looking over the grande plage, average food, expensive and okay service. Is it worth the money? No. Go for a drink perhaps for the view. The evening music was good however though.
