Between Bilbao and San Sebastian – just overlooking San Juan de Gaztelugatxe…
The Basque language is a little different than any other language of its neighbors and so are the names of the restaurants and locations.
We did a day trip to the coast of Biscay and wanted to see the little church on the islet San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. The little stone bridge that connects the mainland was constructed by men and reminds me a bit of a miniature version of the Chinese Wall.
First I thought the restaurant on top with the view over the sea and islet is just a tourist trap but we were so hungry so we gave it a try.
We ate wonderful fresh local fish (Besugo) and salad. The restaurant actually does only have a few tables with a view. If you just want to enjoy a drink, you can also install on the terrace with the panoramic windows that serve food from the bar.
