Reservations are a must and thankfully ours was for the one on the porch. I took the recommendation for the special of the lamb shank which was as advertised, amazing. Save room for dessert as that was great as well.

This place is very small so reservations are a must but if you want the richest, most authentic Basque found in Ada County this place is it. Fast, attentive and friendly service and some of the most flavorful food you will ever eat. Fantastic.

Unique Basque Food served the way it was meant to be. Fun, Tasty and Easy on the pocket book. Atmosphere is wonderful, located in historic dowtown Meridian, Idaho. Many stories of the Basque Settlers in Idaho are just one reason to explore Epi's.
