Only restaurant in this village. Totally overpriced and inspirationless cuisine. My wife and I paid a whopping €96.00 for an overcooked turbot a la plancha without any garnishings. Wines reasonably priced. Friendly staff. If you have to eat here go for a few tapas in the bar downstairs, still rather expensive but some good ones.

In the tiniest of towns with the smallest of harbors and only one steep way in and out, with no commercial attention to visitors, this little place had numerous very attractive pinchoes out for lunch. Cold mussels in tomato sauce, anchovies on potatoes, mushrooms and peppers on eggs on bread. Attractively served, overlooking the harbor. Could not have been more... More

8 Euro for a plate of 12-16 plain peppers. This costs no more than 1-2 Euro anywhere else! Also the service was terrible and there were only two other parties in the whole restaurant.

What a place, park at the top of this village and take the steps down to the port, this bar awaits, great food & variety, reasonable price and the bonus of looking over the small port, mostly locals and everyone friendly. just great.

Recommended to go here and made the 30 minute journey. Wasn't disappointed. Nice place inside with food views over the fishing village. Served quickly and were given English menu to help. Had great starters and then shared a sea bass. So well cooked and no bones in our mouthfuls. €55 for the fish. Worth it. Maybe it is expensive like... More

We had a lovely meal here from the racion menu. The service was very attentive and they were friendly and patient with our faltering Spanish! Grilled octopus and local green peppers were especially delicious.

Really there isn't much to eat in Elantxobe which is a tiny fishing village. So there wasn't much choice. Still we were disappointed as the pintxos arrived very dry and service was slow. So better tried something else or eat elsewhere outside Elantxobe all together.
