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.

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.
