ASADOR ETXEBARRI One Michelin Star
Not the easiest place to find, this beautiful, rustic, restored stone house, is a couple of km out of town. It has a bar at the entrance on the ground floor and a couple of stunning dining rooms on the first floor.
All the high quality produce is cooked on various charcoal grills by the renowned chef Victor Arguinzoniz who well deserves his one Michelin star. There is no molecular stuff here, just fresh quality food with their unique flavours enhanced from the smoke and grill.
Currently rated as number 3 in the Best fifty restaurants in the world 2019 list. See here for full list
