Cerrado durante la temporada de invierno hasta el 15 de marzo de 2018.

Casa fundada en 1983 por los hermanos Lopetegui, buscamos desde el principio distinguirnos por dar un servicio de gran calidad, aprovechando las mejores materias primas para ofrecer al comensal un producto que degustado en nuestras instalaciones sobre el mar supusieran una experiencia inolvidable. La base de nuestra cocina es la tradicional vasca, y nos gusta distinguirnos por nuestra excelente oferta de pescados y mariscos. Nuestra propia trayectoria nos ha ensenado que un buen servicio y un producto de calidad son la mejor garantia.

Reconvertido en restaurante, el viejo caserio Aiten-Etxe se mantiene en su esencia y estructura desde entonces. Cuenta con dos comedores con capacidad para 80 y 120 personas respectivamente, dos espacios para disfrutar de la mejor cocina tradicional con preciosas vistas al mar, playa y del propio pueblo de Zarautz.
