I spent a week in September in this part of Northern Spain with my girlfriend and family members - parents, sister+hubby - and we came to eat at this restaurant on our last day. My galpal Linda found us this restaurant which was recommended to us by our Spanish friend Ernesto (who lives here in San Francisco). My elderly father (he's over 21) and my brother-in-law Paul shared a fantastic, large dish of varied local seafood - shellfish mainly - and I was surprised to see them meet in the middle at the end - my Dad definitely ate his part - showing how fresh and tasty the food was. For me I choose a more conventional main course - a steak covered in Foie Gras - which is banned in California sadly. The steak was perfectly cooked "rare" - not easy to do as it can be stringy or chewy - and the Foie Gras was spread thickly on the steak - it looked like mash potato there was so much of it. The Foie Gras was as delightful as I was hoping for - and the dish was truly memorable - hence this review. The starters and wines were excellent, but for me over-shadowed by my main course. The restaurant was wonderfully situated on the headland overlooking the large beach of Zarautz - at a very picturesque spot. The staff was friendly, the interior classy and comfortable - but I would recommend you make the trip there for the food.
