Description: "The Ithurria Isabal family have been welcoming guests to the Ithurria Hotel in Aïnhou, France, for three generations. Set in the Basque countryside, the hotel has a warm, rustic ambience and is located close to the coast and the Spanish border. The dining room is the heart of the hotel, and with its terra cotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings and antique furniture the restaurant is ideal for cosy, romantic meals. Head Chef Xavier Isabal cooks up superb family recipes, and we love the Ithurria's signature foie gras pie cooked with ceps and fillets of wood pigeon served with a salad dressed with walnut oil and wild cherries in vinegar; and the Stephane cup – Bourbon vanilla ice cream with chantilly cream,grilled almonds and hot chocolate sauce. "

if you are looking for a classic french restaurant in the area this is the place. Pretty formal, good service, excellent food, extensive wine list. They make their own bread which is absolutely fantastic. The restaurant is at the hotel so if you are not staying there make sure you get reservation.

This is a pretty formal restaurant where they take dining seriously. Service and food were both terrific. Highly recommend.

We were in Biarritz and 2 locals told us about this gem. They said if you only have 24 hours in the area, GO HERE! It was an easy 30 drive from town and we were transported to the local charm. The hotel is lovely and very well maintained - but the food! It's worth the trip alone for dinner and breakfast. We had the prix fixe for the evening and were blown away by the quality and the little "tastings" they offered. We even ordered a bottle of the local wine and were very impressed. I cannot say enough good things - we would love to return someday.

We had a lovely meal here. It is worth it. It had lots of the things I like: local produce, vegetarian options and on request a vegetarian main course, great dessert, amuse bouches, petit fours, breads, well timed service, good wine, an explanation of what we were eating and wonderfully cooked and tasty food.

I made a reservation online and received a confirmation. However five hours later I was sent a cancellation via text without an explanation. This is poor customer service.
