Fodor's Review

This rambling roadhouse, 7 km (4 miles) below Valdezcaray, La Rioja's best ski resort, is famous for its restaurants, El Portal, showcasing fine traditional cuisine engineered by Marisa Sánchez, and her son Francis Paniego's Bistrot Comilón. Marisa's patatas a la riojana (potatoes stewed with peppers and chorizo) are a classic, while Francis experiments with charcoal made from grapevine clippings and serves contemporary numbers such as spring fava beans and baby peas with potato soup. A new gastro bar called E-Tapas occupies the old lounge area, and Francis also oversees the Hotel Marqués de Riscal restaurant in Elciego, and the gastrobar Tondeluna, in Logroño. There's a choice of three- or four-star rooms, and package deals including meals. Staff are warm and engaging.
