Nice local restaurant

This local restaurant in Espelette may not be high in the ratings but it does a very nice job of providing good local food and service at a reasonable price.

This restaurant should be rated much higher! On our tour to Espelette, we stopped in a local pottery store in the town and asked the owner for a recommendation for lunch and she recommended this restaurant.

Our local French hosts took us to this restaurant a few blocks from the main city square. It was a very good restaurant with an almost exclusive menu of local cuisine. That means lots of meat dishes with medium red pepper flavoring. If you are a vegetarian, neither this restaurant nor this region in Pays-Basque is likely to please you.... More
