I can only hope I go again. Next time the al a carte menu!

Yes great degustation. Hard to get to, hard to find. Great staff. Not fancy but quite refined and a step into a different somewhat traditional food sphere. Loved every dish.

This place serve splendid food from start to finsih. Nothing to complain about, it is a must go restaurant. The only thing that bothers me is that the food they serve does not match the interior.Food is simple and close to perfection but they serve it in a diningroom which is closer decorated like bad first class lounge in a...

Delicious. Warm and friendly staff. Flavors I didn't know existed! We had the tasting menu which is incredible. Left totally full and very satisfied. Great wine list. It's a fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere. Not stuffy or pretentious at all and in a beautiful rural setting. It was a birthday surprise and the lovely waitresses brought a cake... More

Wow. So many well recognised restaurants in this part of Spain that it should be hard for anything to stand out. This really is a barn at the end of a road in the middle of nowhere. I can happily say that every course we had was world class. Quite simply the best cooked meal I have probably had. Everything... More

Our family of three had a memorable meal at this cosy farm house up in a hill hamlet 45 minutes from Bilbao. Guided by gps the drive to this out of the way restaurant is half the adventure. The food is straight forward but gutsy and bold in flavour. It's all in the quality of ingredients. Grilled Palamos prawns, beef... More

This was one of several Michelin restaurants I dined at this past week. It deserves 2 stars for food quality, great farmhouse style ambiance, and service that is consistent with their dining process that works well but differs from Arzak and Nerua which are more classic in service style. So what. Eat here and enjoy, especially the buffalo mozzarella, eat... More

By girlfriend booked this restaurant to celebrate my 40th Birthday and we travelled over from London for it. We spent a couple of days in San Sebastian and then a night in Bilbao. It was from Bilbao that we took a train to Durango and then a taxi to the restaurant and then got a taxi back afterwards (€70). We... More

We heard about this place from Anthony Bourdain's show (no shame on that. :)). To be able to get here, we rented a car and drove 1 hour of windy country road. Make sure your GPS knows where to go, we got lost and had to use a google map to compare with GPS to finally locate the place. Lucky... More

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...
