This restaurant offers a daily menu for 14€ that consists in a first, a main and dessert. "Pintxos" (sort of a tapa) are reslly tasty as the first course (you can choose 5 of them). Basque cuisine is always recomendable, and so is this restaurant.

If you don't speak Spanish this restaurant is a great choice. The tapas selection is very good and the price is reasonable. You serve yourself. Don't need to worry about reading the menu. Not a good choice for children unless they are very open to new food. I had 3 glasses of wine and six tapas for 16€.

Service was awkward, not much support for non native speakers. I ordered steak tartare by accident (silly I know) and they didn't make much effort to tell me what I was ordering. The waiter made me feel uncomfortable and sorry to say, the coffee was bitter and I couldn't even finish it. The most bitter part about this experience was... More

The Basques are renowned for their meat and fish and this restaurant is perfect on both counts. Their mussels are almost worth the trip on their own. Their steaks are perfectly cooked and the wine list is full of very interesting products. The 'Castell del Remei Oda' is especially good The service is excellent; it's like being at a friend's...

I had late dinner and enjoyed the hospitality here. Good starter, deep fried baby squid and as a main dish I had beef with foie gras on top. All very nice however a bit heavy. Service is very friendly. Certainly a place to recommend. Price level is firm.
