We had reserved really in advance and they put us in the terrace although it was really hot outside (we were sweating and there was not air conditioning). What's more, they told us to leave if we were uncomfortable on a day where they knew everything would be packed. WE ARE NEVER GOING BACK.

Reviewed 2 July 2015

We visited Guernica as a day trip from San Sebastian. After touring around for a bit, we were getting hungry and needed to eat before hitting the road again. The tourist bureau had given us a list of restaurants and so we decided to try one that was on the outskirts of the city center. We arrived around 12:40, and since they were not serving lunch until 1, we asked if we could sit on the terrace and have a drink until then. My husband and I ordered a glass of the white house wine and my girls had cokes. We were amused when we received the bill as our wine cost less than the cokes at a Euro 1.20 apiece, and it was good!

At 1:10 our waitress came to check on us and informed us that if we wanted to eat, we needed to move inside. The inside tables were dressed in white table clothes and red chairs. We were the first inside but were eventually joined by what appeared to be business diners. The menu consisted of meat and fish. My girls opted for a sirloin with potatoes and the waitress was helpful in mentioning that one order would most likely be enough for both of them. I ordered grilled lamb that was on the daily specials, and my husband the cod. My husband asked for suggestions on appetizers and the waitress suggested the grilled local peppers and fried local calamari.

Before our food, the waitress brought us complimentary gazpacho which was quite simply delicious. This was followed by the peppers. Grilled and garnished with olive oil and sea salt, they were also fabulous. The calamari was also a big hit, lightly battered and very fresh. They were accommodating by halving my girls steak and giving them each their own plate with potatoes and more peppers. The portions were generous and they loved their meal. My lamb was delicious, accompanied by french fries and a green house salad we ordered. My husbands dish of cod in two sauces was a big portion and while he preferred the green sauce over the red, still thought it was tasty.

Hands down, a wonderful meal with friendly, helpful service!
