And it keeps a secret: its cuisine. Hake and anchovies in batter, begihaundi, cod in pil-pil sauce, mushrooms, fish soup, squid rabas, stews, ensaladilla…

The traditional repertoire to be enjoyed at their few tables or to take home or to the rented flat in a tupperware.

Three generations of customers continue to trust us, there must be a reason”, emphasises a proud Eneko Uceta.
