This place has astounding food. Served Basque style so don't fill up on all the courses you get before the main dish arrives. One of those courses was homemade clam chowder. We bought a large container to take home. We had prime rib that was marvelous. We used to plan our trips through Winnemucca to eat here. We now live... More

Come here if you spend night on a road trip for some good food and friendly service. It's Basque with interesting history and food, for most part, is good and certainly plentiful. House red comes with "family style" meal that includes soup, salad, "sides" and main course as well as dessert of bread pudding which we did not have room... More

This is one of our favorite places to go. It's comfortable and great food, a little spendy but you get a ton of food. They serve family style so you sit with random people with is always fun to meet new people! Great wait staff and the owner John is very friendly. I highly recommend it.

Midway from CA to Salt Lake City, we decided to spend the night in Winnemucca and try this restaurant for dinner. The Basque food was all delicious - well seasoned and plentiful. Started with the best minestrone soup and ended with entrees of pork chops and 1/2 rack of ribs... both served with perfect french fries. In between there was... More

Had originally planned to eat at the other Basque Restaurant in town (Ormacheas) because we had eaten there for many, many years when traveling across Nevada back to California. In fact, hub's family is originally from Winnemucca, so he had eaten at Ormacheas as a child decades ago. However, recent reviews here on Trip Advisor indicated that the restaurant had... More

We ate here due to the raving refiews on Trip Advisor. We went in pretty early for dinner and were the only people in the dining room the entire time we were there, about an hour. Service was spot on, server not hovering but was very prompt with serving courses. The setup is communal tables (though we were oh so... More

One of the better Basque restaurants in Northern Nevada (and the best in town since the Winnemucca Hotel burnt down). Plan on eating a lot (and paying quite a bit too - but the food is worth it). Served family style in the great and homey dining room.

This was a wonderful surprise. The Basque cuisine is absolutely outstanding, and the community feeling is a rare American experience. The people with whom we shared a table were entertaining and interesting and dressed for work or their hunting expeditions the next day.
