Fodor's Review

The sidrería experience is a must in the Basque Country, and Arriaga is a local institution, on the ground floor of an ancient tower where locals sing to the Virgin of Begoña on religious festival days. Sidra al txotx (cider drawn straight from the barrel), sausage stewed in apple cider, codfish omelets, txuletón de buey, and Idiazabal cheese with quince jelly are the classic fare. Reserving a table is a good idea, especially on weekends.
