Knowing we would be in Spain, I booked this meal about four months in advance, and I am so glad I did. I can't in this small space begin to describe how brilliant the food was, but sufficient to say we ate all twelve or fourteen courses constantly saying, "OMG, I've never tasted anything as good as this!" Service was... More

Despite an adventure getting there via public transport this was a superb meal. Everything was cooked to perfection and the matching beverages were of a high standard. The home made bread, butter and cheese were the icing on a wood fired cake. The set menu had a good range and the a la carte was there too. If I was... More

We travelled from London to the Basque Country just to eat in 2 restaurants: el Kano (probably the best meal and fish experience I've had in my entire life) and the asador etxebarri. When we arrived we first had some homemade vermouth (delicious) and went for the tasting menu -WRONG MOVE- don't get this wrong, everything was perfectly cooked and... More

It is now considered to be one of the best restaurants in the world. And it is! The great specialty is roasting, and more even, smoking all sorts of products, be it meat, vegetables, fish or anything, really. Exquisite food! And now, with their great service and an upgraded tasteful room, and set in that beautiful valley, it is "mandatory"... More

Beautiful dining room, very elegant. We really enjoyed the food here. The chef obviously takes pride in using quality , fresh ingredients...and knows how to treat his product to extract maximum taste. The food was delicious...but don't expect any culinary surprises...it's not that kind of kitchen, nor do they claim to be.

In the high sierras of Basque country lies this wonderful Asador. Delights abound as each of 15 crafted dishes from the menu roll from the grill into the elegant dining room, goose barnacles, fresh chorizo, and of course steak on the bone. Many ingredients sourced in the village. Excellent wine list, good spot to discover the best of Cava. Worth... More

We got to get a tour of the kitchen after our 3 hour brunch. The head chef is such a warm, friendly and amazing person!! Not only did we have the best steak and prawns, but we got to see horses among the hills in the background! I look forward to my next trip to Spain and Etxebarri!

We visited Asador Extebarri in October to celebrate our anniversary. The food is stunning (we had the tasting menu) and certainly lives up to the hype - Chef Victor Arguinzoniz is famed for his command of the grill, use of local ingredients and attention to detail - all of which shone through in the dishes. The presentation is simple and... More

We recently had dinner at this restaurant. We were staying south in Rioja but the 90 minute drive was worth it. The restaurant is set in the mountains and is gorgeous. We enjoyed the tasting menu. Everything is grilled and has a nice smoke flavor. We knew we were in for a tasty meal when the butter even had a... More

Located in the countryside near Bilbao, in the midst of beautiful mountains. Most of the ingredients are obtained from nearby farms. They even brew their own beer, which is very good. The staff is very friendly and professional. The whole table has to choose whether to order a la carte or to order the sampling menu. The sampling menu features... More
