“One of our favourite restaurants - we have been going here for many years. Absolutely stunning views down the coast to Spain and over the surf beach of Côte des Basques in Biarritz. Delicious food - a great choice of fusion dishes, and we highly recommend the maki and the nachos! Also a great place for breakfast or brunch. Very friendly staff. ”
