The reviews for this place are mixed, we ate there three times and twice in other local restaurants, all meals were fish, to eat anything else in these places is sacrilege.
We had no trouble either with the food or service with no duff dishes, even when the place was full.
This is not a Michelin star pretender, basic room and tables, it is full of locals who all seemed to know what they were getting and enjoyed it as did we.
The turbot was exquisite followed by great sea bass, marzula (hake) flash fried shrimp , wine list a bit short in the white category but fair prices and had to get the waiter to use wine glasses not tumblers one night which was no problem.
The likes of the turbot are priced per kilo and not cheap but this ort of fish is not cheap anywhere now so one is entitled to expect quality and here we got it, enjoyed every meal, if you go up the road to Kaia Kaipe the kilo price is double, fine restaurant though it is you are paying for a little better meal and white tablecloths and penguin waiters, you take your choice.

What a find , great seafood had the fresh lobsters from the charcoal grill ! They were so fresh tasting. We both had them and the style of cooking lobster was so unique. Will be back to basque country for more

Place was almost empty when we got there around 20:00 but filled up as the evening went on. Had a table by a small window, which was fine. Service was pretty good but the table of 4 next door seemed to get priority. No squid which was a disappointment. Ordered merluza as a main but nowhere near as good as the Mayflower. Mains came with boiled potatoes, not much else. Halibut pie turned out to be pate. Would return t the mayflower before this place. Good wine

This is a very good place if you want to have some honestly good seafood or fish. I recommend the sweetbreads, baked crab and the trout (see pics). Suggest to book in advance on the terrace.

This restaurant is highly thought of in Getaria and well patronised by locals who clearly know their stuff. However, as visitors, we found it a bit complacent in all respects. We shared a large rib of beef, which was very good meat, but cooked a bit rarer than the medium we'd asked for (allowing for medium having a different meaning in Britain to the rest of of Europe!) but wherever you are, medium doesn't mean "some if it completely raw".
