This restaurant was recommended by a guy in San Diego who loves food and went to school with the chef. I was introduced to the chef on the road through messenger. I decided to take the light rail tram to Orio to have lunch at this restaurant on my last day in Spain. The tram from San Sebastian was only... More

The fish is grilled outside and served with a simple but most delicous seasoning including olive oil, lemon/vinegar and garlic. They serve no potatoes, just bread,... More

We were looking around for somewhere to eat and saw that this place was always busy with locals. We visited in July so we ate outside. We had the €40 meat option between two of us which was just fantastic. I tried the local cider which is like nothing I've had before - give it a go! Whilst the waiting... More
