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

Busy friendly restaurant / bar. We ate a good three course meal with bread and wine for 20 euros. The waitress spoke excellent english and was able to help us translate the very varied menu. I would recommend this place for a lunch stop. No frills.... Just good food and good value.

We had several Pintxos here and some patatas bravas. The service was ok, but not overly welcoming. The selextion of Pintxos was good, some 12-15 different options to choose from. Some of the were good and some a bit suspicious on the quality. The patatas bravas were far from fresh, only heated in microwave oven. Prices were ok, 5 Pintxos... More

One more swindle-restaurant, so typical in Spain: they serve all dishes along with a piece of bread you did NOT order, yet they charge you for it. That's called a scam. ------ Otro de esos restaurantes-timo donde te sirven los platos con un poco de pan que NO has pedido, pero luego te lo cobran. Eso se llama estafa.

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.

Stopped here for lunch when passing through Getaria. The place was full with locals which is always a good sign. We had the menu del dia, which offered great value for a three course lunch with drinks and coffee. The food was okay, nothing special, but the service was friendly and efficient. They also had some great looking tapas in... More
