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.

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.

Etxola Bibi, Avenue Notre Dame, Biarritz, France, +33 6 09 63 15 98

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.
