Tapas or a meal... Beer or wine... so many options and you can't go wrong. Oh and the lunch special.... finally on the second day I realized I didn't have to finish the bottle of wine. Locals, travelers, 'real Basques' all eat and drink here....More

Anna, we didn't book. We were walking around and decided to try them. We had no problems finding a table, although it was a little late.
