“Great lunch in a neat French Basque town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We would recommend driving in the French basque area with the towns Ainhoa, Sara, and Espelette. The countryside is beautiful. We had lunch in Espelette, known for their red peppers which are hanging up on all the buildings. Aintzina was a wonderful restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. We had a special of the day, home made pasta with mixed seafood, it was delicious. Had local beer with it, they have a good wine list.
