Was initially disappointed in the lunch menus of restaurants in Gernika-lumo until we settled on Julen and got such a surprise at the quality, quantity and value we received. It was easy to see why it was full of locals and despite the drizzle all the outdoor tables were full too.

We enjoyed walking around Gernika town and looked for a menu of the day. We could only find 3 restaurants almost next door to one another that offered menu of the day. It was still early and the menu were only 10 euro so we decided to leave town and find something better. 90 minutes later having found nothing we... More

It was Easter Monday evening and we were looking for a hearty meal having walked all day. Not much was open apart from bars and we did not want that experience tonight. At end of the street we came across Restaurante Julen with a menu del dia available for evening meal. Most unusual. It was a very hearty meal, nice... More

Five of us ate here on the penultimate night of our week on the Camino de Santiago - so we were tired and very hungry! At first glance the place looked pretty unassuming: a real 'man's bar' rather than somewhere you might expect to get a good meal. First impressions can be deceptive however. We were led to a small...

Julen is the very usual bar and restaurant at the end of the pdestrian street in Gernika-Lumo. It's night menu was a straightforward good meal with traditional dishes and tasty postres. The fish was good and the cheese-ham plate also fresh tasting. Excellent food, wine and bread for 14 euros.

Super generous portions! Only 10 euros a person! The beans (judias) were fantastic! What a large bowl of beans---enough for 2 or 3 people, but it's just for 1 person. The salad was also huge and that was just the first plate. Then we had grilled chicken fillet with french fries and the desserts were great -- arroz con leche... More
