Kaskazuri

It was a Sunday night, and it was my first weekend break from Mugaritz. I overloaded on pintxos since my arrival and thought it would be nice to eat somewhere different. When in Paris, eating at my favorite local spot, L’Avant Comptoir, the staff told me about Kaskazuri.

With a breathtaking and limitless view of the Bay of Biscay, you can enjoy upmarket Basque seafood in the white and spotless restaurant. The restaurant is adorned with floor to ceiling windows and has 2 ‘wings’ where clients are seated. The restaurant, actually is built on a raised platform allowing views.

You can opt to order a la carte but with a €20 menú del día which includes appetizer, main dish, dessert, coffee/tea, as well as water and a bottle of wine, you will tend to lean to the latter.

Fresh from La Rioja valley!

Obviously, I had the menu of the day…Luckily we were two and picked different dishes.

Mushroom pudding and onion sauce. Loved the texture of the mushroom pudding and the crunchiness of the chips.

Stuffed crepe of codfish cream with a Scallop gratin

Baked Hake fish with Crab sauce

Duck breast and leg with Porto wine sauce, Apple puree

Torrijas – a kind of bread pudding

Baked peach with yoghurt sauce – nice and light compared to the Torrijas!

The restaurant is a short walk from either the Gros district and the Parte Vieja which makes it easily accessible, but also effortlessly cooks up a storm making it easily packed. It’s not big on presentation or fancy dishes but here it’s the food that counts, and that’s what blew me away.

Book in advance.
