Kiskia Review

A modern take on the traditional cider house, this rambling tavern near the San Mamés soccer stadium serves the classical sidrería menu of chorizo sausage cooked in cider, codfish omelet, txuleta de buey, Idiazabal with quince jelly and nuts, and as much cider as you can drink. Actors, sculptors, writers, soccer stars, and Spain's who's who frequent this boisterous marvel.

    Below average restaurant, above average price.

    The Fodors review was so far off that after dinner we double checked the address to make sure that we had gone to the right place. Nope, right place, just a very inaccurate review. We had a poor meal and paid 85 euro for it (no coffee, desert or wine). The atmosphere described was non existent (we were the only couple in the restaurant) and we dared not have a pre-dinner drink at the bar which was spotted with unwelcoming locals and smelled like a sweat shop. Did we pick the wrong day of the week? Don't risk it if you are only in town for a few days. A bad "Fodor's Choice".
