Excellent tomatoe salad, ruined by excessive salt. A 1 1/2 pound steak was enough for two people, meat was not as tender as other denominations.

Waiter was extremely helpful, and was the best part of the experience.

Muchas gracias por utiizar su tiempo en escribir una opinión sobre nuestro restaurante. El tomate de Gernika lo preparamos como a la mayoría de nuestros clientes les gusta, si usted no debe o no le gusta la sal, debería de anunciarlo. En cuanto a la carne, avisamos siempre del peso y además de dudar que le hayan dado una chuleta de 1,5kg para 2 personas. ¿No habrá sido 1,05 kg, y le haya parecido mucho porque no está acostumbrado a ver dichas chuletas?. Siento que no le hayamos satisfecho

I've just returned from a beautiful meal in Nido. We had the t-bone steak, between 2 people which was stunning. The restaurant is fairly small but has a lovely atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful when explaining the menu. The wine is beautiful and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend and will return on our next visit to the basque region.

We had an excellent dinner here - very high quality ingredients, and friendly service, in this family-run restaurant. Highlights were sublime tomato salad using tomatoes from Guernica, beautiful T-bone steak - the speciality of the house - from Limousin cattle from the owner's village, and some lovely ice-creams (the green apple ice cream, apparently made solely from Granny Smiths with nothing else added, was very good). Nice slightly chilled Rioja to go with the beef. A bit pricey, but worth it, and more to my taste than some expensive 20-course tasting menu with starchy formality.
