If you ever have the chance to visit Tolosa, make sure you try the typical Basque beans stood. This is amazing and this restaurant offers some of the best in the region. Sizes are big so don't waste your time eating anything before the beans. If you still hungry after trying them... desserts are fantastic too.

Regular restaurant with some great dishes as the beans from the village. Tolosa's beans well prepared in a set menu. Value for money as they are very expensive. For that, I believe deserves an extra half star.

Local Basque cuisine with a magic touch. The food is magnificent and the service friendly without being intrusive. We were made to feel very welcome and *will* return. Well worth a detour.

トローサ。 サンセバスチャンからは電車で約30分くらいの場所にあります。 そこトローサで有名な黒インゲン豆。 そのインゲン豆を使ったスープはバスク地方では有名なのですが、ここトローサ現地の人達からも絶大な支持を得ているのがフロントンです。 トローサは観光地ではないため、特にこれと言ったものはないのですが、食に関心のある方はバスク地方を訪れた際立ち寄る方が多いようです。 レストランはトローサの駅を降りて改札を出てから直進すると駅前のメイン通りになります。 メイン通りにぶつかったところで左折。それから直進して5分くらい歩くと左手に見えてきます。 トロサではとても有名なレストランのようで、道を行き交う人何人かに場所を尋ねたのですが、皆さんご存知でした。駅員の方までご存知だったので、地元では多くの人に親しまれているんだと思います。 メニューは昼、夜共に共通のメニューです。 レストランのスタッフはスペイン(バスク)語しか話せなく、英語は全く通じません。 かろうじていくつかの単語が理解出来るくらいです。 今回はココチャが食べたかったので、以下コースメニューの魚料理をココチャに変更してもらうのと黒豆スープをハーフサイズで注文することだけですが、伝えることに苦労しました。 BEOTIBAR PRIX-FIXE MENU 46ユーロ+TAX Carrasco-label ibérico de bellota (acorn-fed Iberian cured ham) from Guijuelo The soft-scrambled farm eggs with winter mushrooms The grilled red prawns from Huelva The oven-roasted hake loin with arbequina extra-virgin olive oil ココチャに変更 The grilled cod kokotxas with roasted red piquillo peppers The seared...

Not 100% sure we were at the restaurant mentioned by others as fine dining & suspect we found ourselves downstairs at the outside tables on a hot Saturday afternoon after the local market finished. Walking along the main street heading back to our car & managed to find a couple of tables here. The waitress spoke no English, but was... More

Frontons location is connected to several important Pelota courts, just in case you forgot you were in the Basque. And the food and atmosphere of the restaurant is unique. I had the menu del dia at lunchtime and was reluctant to leave. The owner and head chef introduced me to all the staff then watched a bit of pelota. Just... More

An excellent local restaurant, located above another restaurant with décor that having browsed their stylish website, seemed a lot more old fashioned than one might expect, but don’t be put off! The food is all about dishes with only a few flavours from fresh, local produce, cooked to perfection. The standout dish for me was an amazing olive oil roast... More

Having read previous reviews, we knew we had to take the left door and get up on the first floor. But the door was locked (20:45h). So we rang the bell to ask if the restaurant would open. It was open since 20:30, they just forgot to open the door :-) But then, we were consulted and served by the... More
