We spent the day eating pinchos in Vitoria, and this was our favorite place. In fact, we ate two rounds.
If I have to recommend one I would choose the one with the fried egg, even though it sounds simple it is a marvel to put the little potato sack in your mouth so that once you chew it the egg comes out.
It was recommended by a reviewer when I asked where the locals eat.
A success. Diverse menu, well presented and first class ingredients.
The hake almost jumped it was so fresh and the delicious Basque dessert - delicious.
I ate out despite being winter but with the little stove I didn't feel the cold.
The first thing I'll give you is the web address: http://www.Saburdi.Com/. I don't know how the charming waiters don't go crazy serving the multitude of patrons at the bar, responding to all their questions about descriptions of snacks and everything. A spectacle and delight for the senses.
Xixilu restaurant is a pleasant spot for up to 100 people, which is located in the heart of the city. Among the dishes, which change with the seasons, you can choose from a wide range of fish, vegetables, mushrooms, traditional dishes, and various desserts. But perhaps the most outstanding dish are the red beans. There are many options available here, but I particularly recommend going for tapas and snacks. In the summer months, it has a terrace on Plaza Amarica, an ideal spot to eat outside and enjoy watching the streets of Vitoria.
Located in the medieval town of Gasteiz, this has decor that reflects its surroundings, a mixture of rustic and medieval. It's a two-storey building with a beautiful facade. The menu has some traditional Basque dishes, but they specialise in grilled meats. They also have a daily tasting menu at very good prices and an interesting wine list. The service is great (just a quick warning: I've had problems paying by card before, bring cash just in case). Superb quality / price ratio. And finally, a few steps away you find the magnificent cathedral of Vitoria.
Kaskagorri is located in the famous Plaza del Machete, below the Church of San Vicente and next to famous landmarks like the Plaza de la Virgen Blanca. In my opinion it's one of the best restaurants in Vitoria, thanks to the chef, Iosu Sainz Munilla, who blends traditional Basque cuisine with cutting edge techniques. The wide variety of hot pintxos are a real highlight, and the best day to go is Thursday, when they have "pintxo-pot", ie a day when you'll get a free pintxo with your drink. One thing to keep in mind is that this restaurant is closed on Mondays and is open for dining Tuesday through Sunday, lunch 13 to 15 hours and dinner from 21 to 23 hours.
I wanted to surprise some friends from Madrid who came to vsiit me in Vitoria. So, I took them to a restaurant with a typical local menu (pate, chorizo in cider, scrambled eggs with cod, grilled chops). The cider wasn't as generous as it normally is, but the rest of the menu was delicious. The price was average for this type of restaurant, that is to say, a bit on the expensive side.
Matxete Grill is located in the medieval centre of Vitoria, in the square of the same name. Here you can enjoy grilled meat and fish and various salads, followed by a delicious dessert. The menu is wide-ranging, and the restaurant has a dining room for 55 people in a beautiful stone vault. There's another dining room for 20 people, and in the summer months you can sit outside and enjoy the best views of this historical part of the city.
We visited Vitoria and ended up dining here. It is a really great spot, that I recommend for lunch or dinner. The pintxos are amazing, and the service is great, too. The owner treated us like royalty, and the food was beyond delicious.
