A wonderful surprise in the nevada desert.

Garlic....if it is your thing (like us) you are in for nirvana. Everyone else... just amazingly good Basque food. I must say, I had Basque food in Elko last year for the first time.

We had heard how good the food was but had never been there. It was family style so we sat with five people we didn't know. My husband and son were not sure at first but we started chatting and it was a lot of fun. Everyone that worked there was super nice. A very busy place. We were served... More

Had to make an emergency stop in Winnemucca and came across this place. Food was delicious and service was friendly and prompt. I loved sitting with strangers and making friends. We are making a point to come back on our way to Burning Man!

Traveling from Reno to Boise and stopped here for lunch. Felt Iike we were in a time warp to the wonderful laid back 1950's. Relaxed, comfortable dining room with communal tables. When I saw sweetbreads on the menu I was in heaven, and they were delicious. This item would be a turnoff for most, but for me they were an... More

My family and I stopped here for dinner. The staff was outstanding. I told them up front that we had a toddler and needed the food quickly. They sped everything up and I was very impressed with their service. It was kid friendly. A bit pricy- $100 for three regular meals and one kids meal. But you get several courses... More

The food was good, you pick out your main course and the bring out the appetizers (soup, salad, mashed potatoes, etc) while your food is cooking. Good food, but my wife and I aren't a big fan of the family style eating, where you sit at a table with random people. Would have been 5 stars if it had been... More

I love the Martin Hotel. Anytime I am in Winnemucca (unfortunately not enough) I always make time to visit. The staff is always friendly and they have the best liver and onions I've ever had in a restaurant. I highly recommend the Martin Hotel.

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 didn't even order an entrée because the... 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
