El Txoko Berria

Basque in Old Town

This welcoming restaurant is a good bet for honest, earthy local cuisine. Take a seat in the handsome dining room and dig into staples such as veal cheeks cooked in Rioja red wine, cod Bizkaina style (with a sweet, slightly spicy pepper sauce) and risotto with mushrooms and Idiazabal cheese (smoked sheep cheese).

Come during the day for the excellent three-course lunch special (€10.50).
