Deserving of its 1st ranking on here. Welcoming and warm hosts providing local, honest ingredients and dishes. The lamb was superb, check out the photo. Only problem is a mere 12 tables, so booking even mid week is essential.

Had great dinner, the owner is lovely and authentic. Good food and just about right in size, tiramisu is quite different to what you would expect, but fresh if your up for something different! No frains, just plain and good taste!

I particularly love this little, cosy restaurant, a bit outside the main square. The meals are very good, prepared with fresh ingredients. Price/quality is correct and the service is absolutely outstanding. In short : adorable !

This small restaurant is hidden in a small side street just of the main square. Most restaurants in Bidart serve fairly standard tourist food, but this gem serves real basque food prepared with fresh regional ingredients. Service was great, a friendly waiter who did his...More
