Sardinas a la brasa en Santurtzi
Santurtzi, Basque cuisine


Our cuisine is one of the distinctive features of the Basque Country. It is based on a blend of traditional recipes and a passion for local produce from land and especially sea. Santurtzi’s restaurants are no exception to this.

Seasonal dishes stand out, with fresh fish taking centre stage and pride of place going to the local speciality: GRILLED SARDINES.

Before you sit down to eat, take a stroll around the FISHING PORT, where you can see fish fresh in from the sea being offloaded every day for sale at the wholesale market.

Fish caught in season served charcoal grilled, in parsley sauce or marinated; Euskolabel-marked local t-bone steaks, irresistible bar snacks washed down with txakoli and other local wines.

These are just a few of the culinary delights that our bars and restaurants prepare with loving care each day.
