Excellent price/quality ratio

The city is full of "nicer" places but far more expensive for no good reason. This restaurant serves very well cooked vasque style dishes, has a wide variety of good pinchos and offers an excellent set menu choice. Don't expect luxury, though, this is a down-to-earth local restaurant. Highly... read more

Great staff who will explain anything you ask for and speak good English, located in the centre of this small town. Super value too!

Would like to reiterate the positive comments made by others. We have eaten here twice during our week's stay and would have been there again last night (Thursday) had it not been closed. Good appetising food at reasonable prices served by friendly staff and surrounded by good humoured animated locals. Not to be missed.

Having had 2 nights of Pinchos here decided to follow recommendations to eat here. Nothing to recommend from outside given other options in Getaria...but this is real local food at excellent prices. Staff excellent - friendly and understanding of language difficulties. Special in the sense of a place where locals are eating rather than location. Highly recommend

Wide tapas and menu selection. Mostly local customers, despite this made to feel welcome. Tables inside and outside in car free street.

we went to this restaurant having seen the earlier review and having been extremely disappointed the night before by the harbour side restaurants. The previous reviewer got it exactly right. It is honest Basque traditional food cooked really well. The set menu is excellent value with great variety.

Getaria is a lovely little fishing town, the size of which is not obvious from the coast road. It has a couple of unimpressive beaches but some genuine charm, and the huge and stylish recently opened Balenciaga museum up the hill, which cost about 30million euros to build and displays about 60 dresses... Clustered above the harbour are 3 restaurants... More
