Bilbao and the Basque Country Restaurants



Arriaga Review

The cider-house 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. Cider al txotx (shot straight from the barrel), sausage stewed in apple cider, codfish omelets, txuletón de buey (beefsteaks), and Idiazabal cheese with quince jelly are the classic fare. Reserving a table is a good idea, especially on weekends.
