Modern Basque food, based on our traditions. Etxea brings the flavours and products from the north of Spain to The Hague. An excellent example is our Txuleton (cote de boeuf), directly from our butcher in San Sebastian. We cook following the traditional way: best raw ingredients treated with respect. Etxea means the feeling of "home" in Basque; a place to be enjoyed with family and friends around good food and wine.
