Le Pim'pi, bistronomic Basque cuisine

Only five minutes away from Biarrtiz's Grande Plage, Le Pim'pi offers authentic, bistro-style cuisine in which regional products are highlighted.

Behind its bistro-looking red walls, in a small dining room with 30 seats, Le Pim'pi presents an unexpected take on food, far from clichés, an approach that has awarded it mentions in the Michelin guide since 2017. In a quiet street of the city centre, far from tourist circuits, the restaurant displays a bistronomic menu that keeps changing but always gives Basque products pride of place. With full transparency, Manu, the chef, even reveals his list of suppliers, all based in the region. As for Fanny, who's in charge of the wine cellar, she will introduce a selection of drinks from the South West that are certain to please hardened enthusiasts. A local Biarritz feel blows on the plates: what will it be? A spring onion pie, green pea soup and sow ham for starters? Follow that with a prime beef cut served with homemade fries and end the meal with ricotta, lime, strawberries and crispy biscuits. The menu changes regularly but always retains local and innovative qualities. No fuss, the chef goes straight to the bone, showcasing simple and light, always refined cuisine.
