An absolute must do when in Treasure Valley. Food is outstanding and the Basque traditional dinners are great. Small local family run place, reservations a must, call a day or two ahead. Wines pretty darn good too.

Epi's is a great little Basque restaurant located in Meridian about 10 minutes from Boise. It is known for its comfort foods such as red bean soup and lamb stew. Fried peppers in the fall are my favorite!! And the bread pudding is amazing!! The service is very friendly--most people are regulars. The owner Chris is always there to greet... More

My husband and I and our best friends visit the Sunny Slope Wine Country Twice a year. We always make reservations well in advance to eat at Epi's. Over the years we have sample many of the entrees which are huge, so we often share. Our favorite so far is the lamb shank - although the cod is also incredible.... More

The "GO-TO" restaurant tucked away in a quaint location in Meridian, Idaho. Sure, the food is beyond fabulous. Luscious, indeed. However, I feel the success stems from the attentive and caring reception of the owners and staff. Truly, a wonderful dining experience.

This is a wonderful restaurant. It is like walking into a friendly neighborhood restaurant in the Basque country. The people are so welcoming and helpful in explaining the menu items. We live in Boise and had visitors from the DC area. Where better to take them than Epi's? They were impressed with the atmosphere, the food and the friendly service.... More
