Fodor's Review

Picturesque and friendly, this unusual restaurant sits like a matchbox on stilts at the edge of the Rentería shipping passage, in the shadow of the occasional freighter passing only a few dozen yards away. The sopa de pescado, thick and piping hot, is among the best available on the Basque coast, and the fresh grilled sole and monkfish, not to mention the pimiento-wrapped bacalao, are equally superb. Make sure you leave some time to stroll around town.
