El Portalón Review
With dark, creaky wood floors and staircases, bare brick walls, and ancient beams, pillars, and coats of arms, this rough and rustic 15th-century inn turns out classical Castilian and Basque specialties that reflect Vitoria's geography and social history. Try the cochinillo lechal asado (grilled suckling pig) or any of the rape (anglerfish) preparations. The wine cellar is a gold mine. Call 48 hours ahead to reserve any of the special tasting menus, at good value ranging between €35 and €61. Once a month the restaurant organizes a theater night (€65), where performances surround your table.
