We were recommended Saltxipi by our hotel, as we had asked for a recommendation for something special, which was characteristic of Basque / local cuisine. The hotel immediately said Saltxipi and told us we wouldn't be disappointed. We certainly wasn't. Utterly amazing food, wine, service and staff. A wonderfully chilled out place, with staff who certainly knew their stuff. The... More

The restaurant is beautiful, and the owner greeted us warmly. They did a wonderful job with the fish dishes.

Had a fabulous night. Excellent wine recommendation, friendly staff, good local cuisine and charming atmosphere. Even my very fussy "is there a kids menu" daughter loved the steak with chips.

You have to try the Red Sea Bream. Simply grilled with garlic and that wonderful Spanish olive oil. The host was wonderful and picked great wines for us to have.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It turned out to be an excellent choice. We had grilled prawns for starter and they tasted very good. As a main cource we both had turbot (rodaballo) and it was absolutely excellent. No doubt it came straight from the sea. You can hardly get any better if you prefer fish. And the... More

We sat outside under the lit tent of this beautiful old villa and ate an incredibly fresh crab salad, sauteed local clams in green sauce (in the shell) and their signature Baked Crab in it's own shell. Owned and operated by 2 generations of a very warm and friendly family.

I made this booking far in advance as my family of 8 were traveling to town to celebrate a special occasion. Two of our party were vegans (only discovered after the booking had been made), so we called ahead to ensure the restaurant could accommodate and were told it would be no problem at all. Expectations were high as we... More

It was so good we went back twice! I suppose this says it all. Love most of the dishes: pan fried clams were cooked just right, sweet and juicy. Baked crab shells were just divine, full of crab meat. We also tried the crab bisque - and yes please I'll have that again. For main course, we had a Royal... More

Really enjoyed my evening. Few things we found odd- far too many crab croquettes; we were a party of 2 and they served us 10 (although getting too big a portion is never the worst thing in the world!)! Also, they didn't really taste of crab. The other dishes were lovely (hake was the standout for me). Service was great!... More
