We tried Asador Portuetxe as we had understood that Anthony Bourdain has tried it. The Asador is not far from old town by taxi and in fact we walked there for exercise. We arrived early before 1300 as we didn’t have a booking. The restaurant...More

We found this restaurant via a recommendation from Eskerne Falcon, a local tour guide. She was right on: the food here is delicious and the atmosphere is unpretentious. The room filled up at 9:00 -- It seems the locals know about this place.
