The Biarritz daily morning food market is a feast for the eyes with a myriad places to stop and sample goodies. It’s not to be missed.
Le Madrid restaurant in pretty Guéthary is very cool and very ‘in’. A place to see and be seen with great food to boot, it’s a fabulous choice for either lunch or dinner.
Remember San Sebastien is just across the border. Go for the best shopping and the tastiest tapas.
L’Hôtel du Palais is a Biarritz institution, reopening this spring after a major refurb. Order an elegant cocktail on the terrace, enjoy lunch poolside, or book a massage at the spa. This is old-fashioned, elegant Biarritz at its best.
A well-kept secret and only for sunny days (otherwise it’s closed), Les Alcyons offers a short, simple menu of hearty Basque fare and plancha favourites. It sits ‘almost’ on the beach at Guéthary.
Maison Laffargue in beautiful St Jean de Luz is where those in the know go for bag, belts and leather accessories.
The Blue Cargo in Guéthary is a feet-in-the-sand spot guranteed to deliver the most memorable of nights.
The Venta Gaxuxa on Bidart’s main square is delicious, local and fun.
Pop in to Maison Arosteguy in the centre of Biarritz for yummy things to eat and great ideas for foodie gifts.
