“Repetitive and failing to transmit basque cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The chef has failed to change the menu over the course of the restaurants lifetime.

Very good basque ingredients poorly cooked and prepared in an absurd attempt to delight palates.

This is a typical basque restaurant. So it should transmit a message of basque flavors.

Failing in that aspect could cost the life of the restaurant long term.

The overall quality of the cooking is average. Service is excellent and the ambient of the restaurant is very good as it represent the basque modern environment of a restaurant.

Very expensive for the quality received.

“Delicious Spanish food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We went for lunch. A lot of seating space at lunch. I hear it gets really crowded at dinner and weekends. We had a series of appetizers. All delicious. The service was extremely good. I had fish for lunch and it was exquisite. The portions are sized just right. Definitely need to go back.

A beautiful setting houses an excellent retaurant, with outstanding service. Paella is delicious, as well as huevos rotos. A good wine list, with many spanish & mexican labels. A great place for friends.

“A long standing excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

The decor is great, the service is first rate (elegant and friendly at the same time) and the food is superb. You have to try the Ham Croquetas. They are wonderful.

“Top restaurant of the zone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Beautiful deco and high-end ambiance.
Attractive wine list -non expensive-.
A menu with something for every taste.
Both owners most kind & wonderful people; one of them being the Chef, the other the Administrator.
There are many good things to try (if you like Spanish food) my favorite is "Bacalao Sevillana" shredded Cod with tomato sauce, olives, olive oil. Comes with a generous portion.
They offer valet service.
