Were it not for the illuminated black and white sign outside, one would scarcely notice Bidasoa. Beyond the simple windowed entrance awaits an abundance of warmth supplied by a fabulously quaint decor and friendly milieu. Bidasoa is a family owned enterprise, operated by a Basque couple and their sons, who clearly aim to maintain the familial feel.
A collection of objects and paintings aesthetically clutter the walls, and the precariously arched stone ceiling beams complete the characterful effect. The same idiosyncratic approach to tradition is evident in Bidasoa’s menu, which offers the very best of regional fare, prepared with unfailing skill, but thankfully lacking in pomp and cost. The caracoles (snails) particularly showcase this approach.
Note: This location is closed for August.
