This restaurant needs to arrive in the 21st century. Very poor when compared to other restaurants in Getaria. Both the service and food quality were poor. This restaurant needs to up its game

I have been here with 6 friends and we have been enjoying this place so much that we need to go back sometimes.
The place was completely full when we arrived but the owner managed to get us a table.
While we were waiting he proudly showed us the kitchen, introduced us to the chef and gave us some recommendations.
The food was fresh and perfectly cooked and served.
We had clams a la marinera, percebes and turbot. The restaurant is just by the harbor and we felt so well that we didn't want to leave.
Strongly recommended if you like fish.

The turbot was absolutely amazing. Best grilled fish I’ve ever eaten. It wasn’t cheap, but that’s just turbot for you. We also had the fried shrimp starter which were delicious and the clams in an amazing sauce. The waitress gave us an English menu, and while she wasn’t exactly the friendliest, its hard to be chatty when you don’t speak the same language :) the chef was great and when he saw me taking pictures of the grill he invited me into the kitchen to take picture. I’d happily go back and would recommend it any day.

We had some jamon, the turbot and dessert. The food was good, service ok. So nothing to complain about. But if you pay a little more you can have a memorable evening in Elkano, where food is stunning and service is really on another level. You'll probably won't regret eating in Asador Astillero. But if you'll go to Elkano you will always remember.

We had our first meal here while staying in Getaria. Although we were given a smile when we arrived, we were stuck at the furthest away table in an awkward corner. No explanation was offered when I tried to ask about how (various) fish were cooked. Our whole roast turbot was excellent - although it came with absolutely no accompaniments. Service was correct, but without charm and we noted on departure that everyone else appeared to have sliced roast potatoes alongside their fish and all the decent tables were given to Spanish people - with a foreign couple being stuck at the opposite end of the restaurant to us, also in a poor position. It was expensive and we would not go back as compared to the service and way we were treated at other restaurants in town, this one did not come anywhere near.
