With over 40 years history this restaurant is a fine example of traditional Basque cuisine. It is also one of the best known classic restaurants in Bilbao. It is located 9 kms outside the centre of Bilbao in Galdako, in a pretty Basque countryhouse next to the Andra Mari 13th century church. The restaurant is set in beautiful countryside with views over the Ibaizábal valley and the nearby mountains Dima, Oiz and Gorbea.
Roberto Asúa combines tradition, innovation and skill in his dishes and very typical to Basque cuisine he uses only the best fresh seasonal ingredients, some from the restaurant's own vegetable garden. As well as using recipes that are over 30 years old like the "Bacalao al club Ranero" he also produces new interesting dishes.
The restaurant is one of the best of its kind and this goes for the service too directed by Margarita Atutxa. The restaurant has an elegant tastefully decorated dining room.
