Fodor's Expert Review Donamaria'ko Benta

$$$$ Baztan Valley Spanish Fodor's Choice

This family-run restaurant and small hotel is notable for its high quality and refined level of service. Created from a former 19th-century residence and stables, the restaurant is cozy in winter, with its crackling fire, and a treat in summer, when you can be seated in the peaceful garden filled with willow trees overlooking the river. Prix-fixe menus change seasonally and are based on traditional recipes, such as secreto de cerdo ibérico con crema de hongas (grilled tender pork steak with a wild mushroom sauce) or txangurro a la Donostiarra (baked crab)—all sublimely executed. It is advisable to make a reservation if you're coming in August or around public holidays.
