Yesterday I went to this restaurant to have lunch. The environment is so nice, the restaurant's furniture and decoration is rustic and beautiful. What about the food? Everything was good, but nothing was extraordinary but the meal, "txuleta". That was fantastic. The waiter who was serving us didn't explain to us what we were about to eat, and that was unexpected, I mean, if you look the price you pay, you expect a perfect attention. Like I say before, the meat was extraordinary, but the rest of the plates were quite disappointing. I'm not saying that it was a bad experience, not at all, but nothing was surprising. The turbot was good, the foie was good, the txangurro was good, but at the end we left the restaurant thinking that it was too expensive for what we had experienced in there.

Wow! We were recommended here by our hotel nearby and it certainly lived up to expectations. Traditions need to be preserved by celebrating them and this place does that throughout - setting, service, method of cooking & local fresh food.
We were the only customers unfortunately but it is obviously a popular place. They showed us how they cook on hot coals and were very helpful with dishes we hadn't experienced. Fabulous food.

We had a fantastic meal this weeked and the Basterri Maitea, a beautiful restaurant only known by locals and with award winnig meat for meat lovers. The eating room is beautiful and we were seated next to the fire place, very nice! The outside gardens are large and nicelly kept, great for an after dinner digestive, events, or eating out with children.

A bit dusty, and old, very quaint, and without customers. We enjoyed the food and the rustic grounds/building, but for the lack of other people. A bit pricey!

We loved this place. Near Guernika, this is a beautiful traditional farm building converted to a great beamed dining room and function room. We had the tasting menu (€55 including a bottle of wine between 2) which had traditional octopus, inventive spider crab soup, sublime steak and delightful pudding all wrapped up with a great bottle of Crianza. Clearly the place for weekend lunch with the grandparents, we were surrounded by local families (kids through to the the older generation). Moreover, service did not skip a beat despite a large wedding in the function room next door (which you could not hear). Garden is big enough for young ones to stretch legs. The food is new Basque, but the right side of foamy! You should book (we booked same day, but it was full.
