Our party of seven was making our way from San Sebastion to Bilbao via the scenic route. We stumbled upon this little restaurant overlooking the harbor. Each of us had a whole grilled fish after a pleasingly fresh salad. The fish was grilled to perfection on an outdoor grill next to the dining area. However let me say the grilled calamari appetizer was by far the best calamari my brother in law and I have ever had. Had I not already ordered the sea bass I would have requested another dish of calamari and another and another......

Fish with superb flavor! That's all you need to know! Monkey fish, shrimp, and more. The white wine paired nicely with seafood! The food and the place belong in a magazine, but can be yours! Only a short bus ride from San Sebastián.

Not usually a fish fan but have been converted. Beautiful view of harbour and coastline. Great selection of fresh fish, grilled to perfection on outside charcoal grill. Order a side salad as fish comes on its own. Perfect end to a perfect weekend away.

Sunday, sun, stop off driving Bilbao to Biarritz, view across harbour, lots of fish and anchovies. Great. Service without a smile though. No free tables when we got there (but there was one we could see - guy in charge said it was reserved) we hung about a few mins and he placed us at the exact same table!!. Note if it is hot then make sure you are under the canopy not on the edge of the harbour wall - it got very hot for the people out there. Good straight forward fish lunch.
