Fodor's Review

This justly popular restaurant is housed in an 1860s building that also incorporates an 11th-century Moorish well. Time may have stood still with the setting, but the cuisine reflects a modern twist on traditional dishes, including seafood mains like hake with clams or solomillo de buey a lo Idiazábal (fillet steak with Idiazabal, a traditional Basque cheese). There's also a reasonably priced and generous tasting menu (€38), and the wine and gin lists are among the best in the city. The restaurant is fronted by a popular terrace and tapas bar (€1.60–€4, first tapa free) that is generally filled with a boisterous business crowd.
