Located in the old town, next to the cathedral. Typical old town house from medieval times. Good cuisine with the flavours of the Basque country. We tried the recommended menu and enjoyed it very much. Good service and friendly staff. .

Didn't make a reservation and luckely my (Spanish) colleague could talk her way into the restaurant. Decent food, poor wine for a fair price tag.
