Dating from the 1890s, this huge, high-ceiling restaurant basks in the faded glamour of the days when dictator Porfirio Díaz dined here regularly. Its founders were Basque, and though it has been run by Galicians for more than 20 years, the menu retains a Basque flavor. Look for rueda de robalo a la donostiarra (sea bass cooked with parsley and white wine) and a seafood buffet on weekends. A hearty breakfast, like the omelet de rajas con queso (with poblano
chili and cheese), will set you up for serious sightseeing.
