Inside this Basque eatery the atmosphere is warm and traditional. Hefty wooden beams hold up the Catalan vaulted ceiling, and the bar (with tapas available) has a garish green-columned front. Here you'll find traditional cooking from northern Spain with the kind-hearted owner Miguel working the front.
Culinary hits include a massive chuleta a la brasa (grilled T-bone steak), rich chipirones en su tinta (squid in ink) and curiosities like kokotxas de merluza, heart-shaped cuts from the hake’s throat. The wine list is daunting but Miguel is on hand to explain everything – in English, too.
