Every meal during this trip to Spain has been spectacular. And lunch at Aspaldiko was the perfect ending. The overall transitional (down to the uniform of the staff) and festive atmosphere (there was a wedding reception going on), the caring service (helping me with my...More

Excellent basque environment. We were not on a romantic occasion, but it would be an excellent choice for a great evening. "Degustation menu" not as good. Otherwise excellent food.

We had a conference dinner here. All the food was truly fantastic, and the old Basque farmhouse - complete with peacocks - is about as quaint a setting as one could hope for. Not far outside Bilbao but well worth the excursion!

We had a nice experience having lunch here. This is the typical basque Baserri (a typycal house with history into the woods with typical waiters dressed in traditional customes). Nice starters and EXCELLENT meat. We had the typical basque "txuletón" with an average red wine....More
