A wonderful slice of authentic Euzkadi food and tradition

Wow! Wonderful hospitality topped by traditional Basque food. Brought back memories of being in Pamplona . Be prepared to take leftovers home, there's no way you can eat all of the wonderful food.

This was what I had been waiting for. This is traditional Basque food served Basque/family style in an historic building near the railroad tracks. Make it a point to go here for either lunch or dinner. Wine is included in the full meal and you can have as many sides as you can eat. It is recommended that you put... More

We came here on a local recommendation and were absolutely flabbergasted at the amount of good food that was continually placed in front of us. The menu is somewhat set wherein the sides are "fixed" but you may choose the main course. We decided to go all out and try something lamb - shanks in this case which were outstanding.... More

45 years ago, I ate my first Basque meal here. It was a memorable experience, as was this. Good food, great atmosphere, and interesting company (meals are served family style). For our entree, Mary and I split the lamb shanks. Although there's a $15 split charge, it's reasonable when you consider we both got soup, salad, sides, wine and dessert.

Anyone who whines about this place simply can never be pleased because this place is terrific. Just about the best mushroom soup ever. The menu varies everyday but there is always something delicious on the menu. Everything was fresh and hot and delicious. Simply Go there. But you do have to enjoy good food to come here. Stay away indiscriminating... More

Once again we traveled north from Dateland to include a stop at the Martin hotel. The food is fantastic, service excellent and one gets to meet some interesting people around the table. I always have the lamb Last night the lamb shank. Tender melt in your mouth. My husband loves the chicken fried steak. The sides are always fantastic as... More

We saw the good reviews and tried the Martin Hotel on a Sunday night. The place was full of locals enjoying the excellent food at family tables. You immediately meet your table mates. Not a place for the shy. The food is bountiful as other reviews have noted. All dinners come with a set assortment of sides. They start with... More

I have been here twice now, and both were incredible experiences. First course was some of the tastiest chicken soup anywhere. Then this incredible salad that you top with very flavorful beans. Then the sides of mashed potatoes with all kinds of goodies in them, a bowl of cooked corn, and a side of either Basque style pepper tongue or... More

We were passing thru Winnamucca and after seeing reviews in TA decided to stop. It was a Tuesday night and the place was fairly busy, which to me is always a good sign. The restaurant is not big there are about six big tables that seat about 10 people each, so you will probably be sitting next to strangers, which... More

A little disappointed. We were in Winnemucca to see grand daughter wrestle. Not my first Basque restaurant as I live in Gardnerville Nevada and we have The JT Basque Restaurant. Which in my opinion is the best in the state. My older granddaughter had salmon, she said it was crispy around the edges, like hard and she could not eat... More
