we stayed here a few weeks ago on our honeymoon and it was amazing + we dined at the restuarant. The food at the restaurant is truly amazing and amazing value, the breakfast is fresh, lots of it and delicious, best we had in spain and france. It is only a small boutique place to stay, but really clean and... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in this lovely Benta in the midst of the Basque countryside. We had been sent here by our hostess at Pyrenean Experience and would not have found such a remarkable place without her suggestion as it is truly off the beaten path. What a delight.

This lovely old building houses a beautiful rustic restaurant with the option of a full a la carte meal or a three course set menu for Hotel guests. We chose the latter and whilst there was not a choice of dishes they quickly offered duck in place of black rice with squid as my wife has an allergy to seafood.... More

The food is incredible. I come back every year, and they allways surprise me. The service is very familiar. and the garden in the back if you have the luck of having a sunny day will delight you.

Quite simply, this is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to anywhere, including many with two or three Michelin stars, and across several continents. The setting is superb, the service perfect, and the food simply divine. What's more, it's very good value, they offer wine to suit all the food, and to suit most budgets. The two... More

A menu offering three courses of well prepared tucker for 25 euros is a tasty proposition by most people's reckoning. Stir in a beautiful location, a generously proportioned dining room and a well-judged level of service and you have the recipe for a very well balanced and satisfying meal. The food is traditional Basque but prepared for modern tastes and... More

In this very quiet and unassuming part of Spain we ended up having a wonderful gastronomic feast by virtue of this delightful restaurant. We stayed in the hotel which is part of the same family concern. The hotel was simple and unfussy which is why the restaurant came as such a delightful surprise...this is not meant as criticism of the... More
