Excellent restaurant food, lovely atmosphere

We were a party and enjoyed the 14 Euro "Menu del Día" (house menu), including wine. There were six choices for the first dish and 12 for the main course. I have often eaten here and can sincerely recommend the excellent food. There is also a splendid à la carte list. Beware, the restaurant is... read more

Excellent pintxos, good prices, very good interior and service. I was there 3 times and it was always very crowded. I think this is real domestical bar with very good qualities for domestical people and those who feel like that.

This is a very friendly and welcoming place, which was my experience with all encountered in this city but with pretty average food at best to be honest. Food was hit and miss, such as the microwaved Spanish omelette which was cold and warm in equal measure.

This bar was one of the most authentic that we visited during our Basque Country tour. No tourists besides ourselves, but a lot of domestic and local people. The Iberico Bellotta ham is second to none. 17 EUR the plate, but from a heavenly quality. The pintxos maybe not as creative as elsewhere, but as I said authentic without too... More

They have a number of 'Menu's' at this restaurant, I went for the 12€ one which is incredible value with three courses and a bottle of wine per person (if you want that much). I can only imagine the more expensive ones must be even better. The food was local, which I love being part Basque, great quality and HUGE... More
