Delicious experience

Fantastic service. Food was very good, simple but executed well, so don't expect fancy plating and complicated ingredients. Don't be embarrassed if you get lost on your way here...

The most difficult thing here is securing a reservation. We were very lucky to bag this. Tremendous food simply cooked over wood without the regular Michelin presence of streaks, foams and nitrogen !

I have eaten at countless Michelin restaurants and I keep going back to this place because I love it. It's pure talent, passion and honesty without the slightest pretension. Every time I go, I'm concerned that they don't keep up to standards, but so far they just continue to impress. For me the world's best restaurant is about sourcing the... More

This is an exceptional restaurant in which the chef treats local produce with the respect that it deserves. There is nothing fancy or pretentious about the menu so if you like foams or spherification then this is not the place for you. All food (cooked on Victor's custom built grill) is prepared simply so that the freshness of the flavours... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this restaurant. I arrived by taxi, so there was no problem finding it. I thought the food was amazing, some of the dishes were quite simple but still very nice. Maybe after a week of eating food with multiple ingredients it was nice to just have some barbecued prawns, or a chorizo sandwich. The... More

That was the best steak I've had in my life. Paired with a simple salad and a hearty red wine, I was in heaven. I've been through many a 3* tasting menu, but 4 hours for lunch really ate up the day and cut into the rest of our plans. The service was fine, although a little haphazard at times.... More

Had spent the week touring star restaurants in Spain and had been saving Etxebarri as the grand finale...however, while some courses really shone, overall the experience was a great disappointment due to the terrible service we received. We did the food and wine pairing. We expected to be told about the wines we were drinking, why they were selected for... More

Each course was a true culinary experience, from a simple goat cheese butter course, a perfectly grilled steak, to a smokey ice cream dessert. Unfortunately it was served by a woman who never took the time to explain what we were eating or drinking (we did the wine pairing), with a sour look on her face and service to match.... More

For the 3rd time in as many years, I enjoyed one of the most memorable meals of any that I have experienced. I had trouble finding Etxebarri the first time, but I got close and just followed the expensive cars! It was worth the trouble. Each of the courses shows a delicate hint of smoke from the charcoal made by... More

The 3 hours tasting journey was really memorable for us. All dishes were really simple but the ingredients were unbelievably fresh and delicious so the end products were really good. If you are comparing this restaurants with other top michelin restaurants with "fancy" dishes, simply don't because It would probably disappoints you. I try to rate dishes as follows: Outstanding:...
