Fodor's Expert Review Sagardi

$$$ Valencia Spanish

The upstairs dining room at this popular Basque restaurant is dominated by two huge wooden cider barrels, long rustic tables for 10—they're geared to groups and big families, but tables can pull apart as needed—and half-moon windows overlooking San Vicente Mártir, the busy street between the plazas of the City Hall and the cathedral. Indulge here in market-fresh fish, charcoal-grilled a la donostiarra (oven-baked, San Sebastian–style, with garlic, cayenne pepper, and apple cider vinegar); or mollejas (sweetbreads) of beef with artichokes. Wash down your selection with ample servings of Txakoli Talai Berri wine. Prefer something lighter? Try the tapas bar downstairs (or a table on the sidewalk) for Basque-style pintxos of cod, sweet red peppers, anchovies, and other delicacies on slabs of crusty bread.
