Fodor's Review

A hot spot for the daily tapeo (tapas tour), this place is always crowded with congenial grazers. On the ground floor, there's a deli and tapas bar where the well-stocked counter might offer anything from wild mushrooms to txistorra (spicy sausages), Idiazabal (Basque smoked cheese), or, for the adventurous, huevas de merluza (hake roe)—all taken with splashes of Rioja, txakolí (a young, white wine made from tart green grapes), or cider. There's a sprawling terrace and a dining room upstairs, but the bar is most popular.
