Stoked from a great surf, I got back and we made plans for dinner. Tonight we were off to L’Impertinent which has an excellent reputation (and a Michelin star). The food was outstanding, and the wine we chose was the first of a couple of “gifts” in a Premier Cru Montrachet. We started outside which was nice, until one bloke... More

I've eaten here twice now and the food both times has been fantastic. Their tasting menu has a great mix of fish and meat which looks as good as it tastes. Would happily visit again and definitely recommend.

Taken here by family who were staying with us in Biarritz and given the reviews and the star I was expecting a great evening. Whilst the food was very good, the service was a real let down. We were not offered an aperitif and we then had to flag down a waiter to ask if we could order wine. Empty... More

The starters were not great, veal carpaccio was very thickly sliced, difficult to eat and tasteless. The main courses were better, tuna and beef were delicious. The service is impeccable, very friendly and they have an English menu.

The food is A M A Z I N G ! Fresh seasonal products, different preparation, local products. The wine list is UNBELIEVABLE GOOD ! Ask the sommelier (the boss and also wife of the chef!) she is perfect and knows all her wine ! The best recommendation ever! She works with small vineyards and small producers! You may have...

Of all the restaurants we visited from Bilbao San Sebastián Pamplona and Biarritz this was our least favorite. Maybe it was an off night since baby goat was the substitute item for lamb but the service and atmosphere left much to be desired compared to their Basque peers in both countries.

An amazing dining experience. Casual, yet sophisticated the staff and especially owner delivered an experience we won't forget. Degustation is a must!
