Not so pricy menu (18 euros, as of oct 2017), excellent food, very well situated. Expect typical spanish courtesy from the attendants (if you had been to Spain, you know what I am talking about).

You can't enter the building. The facade is alright but not spectacular. Don't go out of your way to see it.

Located in the old town, next to the cathedral. Typical old town house from medieval times. Good cuisine with the flavours of the Basque country. We tried the recommended menu and enjoyed it very much. Good service and friendly staff. .
