"Great little restaurant & bar with patio"

My wife & I shared a lamb grinder & an order of croquetas for lunch. It was just enough for 2. The croquetas were Amazing! Great meal option besides local chain options, at a good price.

Great staff. Very good food. Had lamb kabobs and wine. Would recommend it to anyone passing through Boise. Marques de Caceres Reserva goes great with the food.

We eat here once a year on our way to Sun Valley. I crave their lamb grinders the rest of the year. Great beer selection, including sour beer. Awesome staff.

We love going to Bar Gernika for Basque food. It is a fun place to take visitors when in town. The pimento sandwich is one of our favorites. The potato croquets are a good starter. Save room for the chocolate dessert. Its a chocoholics dream.

We had lunch after visiting the Basque Museum. It was convenient as we were waiting for the 1pm boarding house tour part of the museum visit.

This neighborhood Basque restaurant and bar in downtown Boise is one of those pleasant surprises that make travel worthwhile.

This is an old locals place for good beer and Basque pub grub. Croquettas and a lamb grinder or Solomo sandwich is all you need to know!
