Food and drink is the perfect combination, and tapas bars have paired the two so well, it’s almost an art form. They’re the ideal place to get absorbed in deep conversation with friends while nibbling and drinking until dawn. Biarritz‘s location makes it perfect for enjoying the sunset with drinks and tapas, and we’ve selected the ten best places to sample some of the best tapas in town.

Puig & Daro

Restaurant, Tapas

A chic wine bar in the heart of Biarritz, Puig & Daro has a large choice of tapas as well. You should try the bocadillo chorizo and tortilla with your glass of red wine.

Etxola Bibi

Etxola Bibi (formerly called Les 100 Marches) is praised by travelers and locals alike for the quality of the tapas served, but also for being a fantastic, if not the best spot to watch the sunset while having a drink.

Bar du Marché

Restaurant, French

Le Comptoir du Foie Gras

Le Comptoir du Foie Gras

The tiny Le Comptoir du Foie Gras might get crowded when it’s busy, but it’s still worth heading there with your group to enjoy the home-cooked foie gras tapas. If you’d rather skip the meat, there are vegetarian options available as well.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
