I enjoyed very much this excellent basque restaurant. The cuisine was excellent and the staff was very helpful and ready to sugestt and recommend dishes and wine. I recommend it if your are in that area. You will not regret it. The marinated meat was great.

Two years in a row we had an excellent lunch at this place. Both the fish and the meat dishes were of good quality, The "team manager" does speak a little english which will help you choose from the menu. Their speciality: ham of various ages, one has ripened during almost four years ! A great place to eat.
