Biarritz has a fairly good amount of excellent restaurants, but not all have a seaside view, which is without a doubt the icing on the cake. If you spend some time in Biarritz, check out these places where you will have the privilege to enjoy both.
Bar de la Côte
Restaurant, European, French, $$$
Spend a wonderful time in an easy-going atmosphere at the Bar de la Côte
right in front the mythic Côtes des Basques beach. Sit by the terrace for lunch or come at sundown and have a glass of wine from the wine list before dinner. The chef loves incorporating local products in his cuisine to the customers’ greatest pleasure. Make sure to check their rooftop, which offers an astonishing panoramic view of the coast.

Although the Magasin Bellevue
‘s opening is fairly recent, this unique “coffee-art store” has already become one of Biarritz’s locals’ favorites. Facing the Grande Plage, this is the right place to have a healthy late breakfast-turned-lunch or an afternoon snack while enjoying the art of some of the most talented artists in the region.

You might want to book a table before going to Le Tandem
, as this nicely decorated restaurant, located on the fabulous Place Eugénie, has a fantastic view of the ocean.

Eating in the Port-Vieux area is always a good idea, so eating at Les Baigneuses
is surely a great one! Considered by some regulars as “Biarritz’s most beautiful terrasse,” one thing for sure is that you are in great hands. You will appreciate the team’s warm welcome and the cozy ambiance. The recipes are original and well executed. Once you’re done with your meal, you should go to the rooftop to end your evening on an even higher note.
Restaurant, Tapas, Contemporary, French, European, $$$
should be on your list of spots to eat while you are in Biarritz. In order to reach it, you will have to climb the famous stairs of Les 100 marches
(the 100 steps), but once you’re at the top, you will without a doubt agree that it was worth it. In this small cabane, order some delicious tapas
with your friends while witnessing the most breathtaking sunset.
