One of the best restaurants i've ever tasted in Donosti. Don't forget to order merluza's cococha and milhojas.

On the look out for a proper sit-down Basque lunch we avoided he excellent pintxos bars on the way and called into this great little restaurant. White tablecloths, excellent Rioja, great service and top-drawer Basque cuisine! Definitely paying a return visit before heading back to Madrid!

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Food was excellent and the service friendly and efficient. I liked the fact that the kitchen area was part of the restaurant. I have no problem recommending this restaurant.
