Gastronomic restaurant and charming hotel in Guethary, Basque Coast.

Briketenia restaurant and hotel welcomes you to Guethary, in the heart of the Basque Country, between Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz. Guethary, an old fishing village transformed into surfer's paradise; a village raised on the traditional sport of Pelote, typically Basque, between the sea and the mountain, alive in spirit with cultural authenticity and regional traditions.

10 minutes walk to the beaches.

A family home

Times have changed since the days of the old Relais de poste on the Napoleon road which lead to Biarritz. Briketenia - in reference to the stone quarry - became a charming 4-star hotel and a Michelin-starred gastronomic restaurant. A home where the spirit and values of the Ibarboure family have flourished over generations: an attachment to the land, to traditions, conscientious workers, hospitable and warm-hearted. Welcome!

Gastronomic Restaurant

The spirit of the family perpetuates into the cuisine with the four hands of father and son: Martin and David Ibarboure journey together to create innovative, modern and exciting gastronomic dishes which draw on inspiration from the regional repertoire. Proudly working with fresh and seasonal products along side local producers.  The result, beautifully presented dishes to savour served in the dining room or on the terrace while enjoying the picturesque views of the Basque mountains.

A charming contemporary hotel

Briketenia hotel consists of 14 guest rooms and suites in a style which wonderfully blends the Basque tradition with a more contemporary spirit. The result, an atmosphere as bright and refined as it is cosy along with all the comforts of a 4-star hotel. An ideal destination for a stopover on the way to Spain, Portugal or Morocco, for a long weekend of discovering the Basque country or for a family holiday between the ocean and the mountains.


Le Briket' Cote Bistrot welcomes you into a refined contemporary atmosphere where you can explore the gourmet menu carefully created by Martin and David Ibarboure. High quality locally grown produce,  simple and tasty dishes, an inviting atmosphere... that's our recipe for happiness in our bistro home.
