Our steaks were delicious! To find this place, go up the stairs past the Church of San Vicente Martir and look to the right. Here's... More

If you are looking for good, no-nonsense Basque food, this is a great alternative. Food is not fancy, but good quality and very well prepared. I cannot get the grilled monkfish out of my mind.
