[center][/center]I completely agree with Jason. I went twice to Jose and I think it is overpriced. The portions are not huge. To cut ham or chorizo is not cuisine. I ate the hake in two mouthfuls and the aioli was ok. The patatas bravas are only sauteed potatoes with a spicy sauce. I will try Pizarro to see if the portions are more generous for the price they charge. On top of that, you cannot seat properly in Jose.
My vote goes for Zucca. I love going there and my friends from abroad also love the place. They always ask me to book very early to get a table.
I cannot wait to try Antico as well!

Serge, Jose's place is a tapas bar, i.e., he is providing appetizers, snacks - which are sometimes combined to make the equivalent of a full meal. Can't comment on the prices, but the quantity of any single tapas by definition will never be substantial.

I have had tapas so many times. My twin brother has a property in Biarritz and we often go for tapas in San Sebastian. I had some in Granada, Madrid, Barcelona or Bilbao. I know the portions are meant to be small and are usually accompanied with a drink but I was trying to comment about the value for money. Charging 6 for 2 mouthfuls of hake is taking people for a ride. I prefer the starters at Zucca wich are usually cheaper and better value for money and tastier!

totally agree with Spartacus- Jose is a tapas bar...the portions are small because that is the nature of this style of cuisine. I cannot fault the cooking or the ambiance at Jose, and for information Jamon Iberico is expansive anywhere. It is a delicacy. maybe not in Biaritz...

It is a delicacy everywhere but we are not talking Pata Negra Ham and Biarritz is a beautiful place 30 minutes by car from Spain! I still believe Jose is too expensive for what you get on the plate Am I entitled to my opinion?

Obviously not, serge. It seems like you've upset people by daring to criticise the new trendy B St thing.

How dare you!!

...if you press it, they will come.

When I used to go to Spain more frequently, in the late 80's / early 90's, I remember that if you went into a bar and ordered a drink, you would get tapas without asking, and for free. Whenever tehy served us one we liked, we would order a "racion" of it, which was basically larger tapas, which you'd pay for and which could get quiet filling. Yum.

i must admit I have noticed any press reviews of Jose tapas, perhaps i have just missed them, I havent tried it yet so cant comment,

looking forward to the new pizzaro the old berm kitchen was very dated,look at bit like a family cafe..

perhaps the new pizzaro will introduce opening discounts for local residents?
