Tradtitional Basque restaurant in the heart of the old tow. Four of us ate, three of us had Steak, the other fish. The fillet steak was perfection. Probably the best I've ever had, and I love steak! Highly reccomended.

The tapas were mainly of the choose from the selection on display at the bar sort, not pre ordered as at for example Cucheria de San Telmo. Very good though, but not as good as good as San Telmo

My husband ate his favourite pinxtos here. For me it is was great as they had a gluten free menu which made it so easy without feeling annoying! Delicious, friendly! Can't wait to visit again tomorrow!
