Such a Fun Place too!

Wow, what a fun place to have a wonderful Basque dinner. We were so lucky to sit with another traveling couple and we just talked and ate at the same time. The food is served family-style. Everyone gets soup, salad, bread, house wine, pasta, veggies, French fries and rice pudding for dessert. I... read more

Wonderful lunch served here. Had the chicken cashew salad served with a garlic vinegarette. Delicious! Historically registered site. Basque restaurant. Nice use of garlic in some dishes. Highly recommend for good food.

Eating dinner here is not your average experience. You are seated with strangers at large table and the side dishes are served to all family style. The strangers are not strangers for long. Even the most private person can't resist for long. If however you are seeking a quiet dinner for your group. This is not your place. Food was... More

Good meal with good friends. The server and atmosphere were fantastic, and the food was great. Maybe a touch on the pricey side, but worth it for the quality of food.

The thing I love about Basque dinning is it is served family style (with complementary wine). The Martin serves great food and the service is outstanding. Hint: Unless you are large food consumers, split the main dish (2 or even 3 ways). The only complaint I have is it is very noisy on busy evenings. The building itself if worth... More

Just stopping through Winnemucca for lunch, and this place was great! Didn't even know what Basque was before but the food was delicious. Also the hotel had great character and was therefore a fun place to be eating (the toilet had a pull chain!) Was not expecting such a great spot but was super fun.

This is an original basque restaurant! Huge servings of delicious home-style food and you are seated family style so you meet other people enjoying the food as well. The historic old Martin Hotel is quaint and interesting also for the setting of this restaurant. We try to stop here every time we pass through Winnemucca.

I did not think that we could find such a great place in Winnemucce. We stopped there on our drive from SLC to SF and had a great experience. Food was great and more than plenty and service was very friendly and fast. Five stars

It was quite fun. I am a harsh restaurant reviewer so don't let the three dissuade you. It was a slice of life, loved by locals and regulars. You won't leave hungry. It is also fun on the road to meet others and the family style seating and serving make that easy.

We were sat and then a couple was sat next to us, in the traditional Basque dining style... No problem... They received bread and wine as is complimentary according to the menu...my husband and I got nothing... No offer of beverages, nothing. We sat staring at the hostess who sat us when we could make eye contact, nothing. We reviewed... More
