Great food and wine list

Great food and wine list. A waitstaff that is friendly and genuine with their interest in wines and cheese. A non crowded feel that really lets you enjoy your company and surroundings, regardless of if its full or not. Prices that are very reasonable considering what you get. These things all combined together really provide for a fantastic 5+ star experience. You owe it to yourself and your friends to go there.

quiet dining and attentive staff

plus food from the Basque/Northern region of Spain. the menu has diversity and most dishes are quite good but don't expect a big menu. I find the staff to be very welcoming and their back garden (although it's under a pavilion so you don't see the sky) is open mostly year round. During the week it tends to be less crowded and is a very nice retreat for quiet dinner.

bad service, paella was more like a soup with rice than a real one

extremely bad service, i would say rude. The smallest endives that i have ever seen with a cheese that taste more like a dressing salad than real cabrales. The paella was a soup with rice.......... written by someone with spanish (Galicia) roots........ the manager (i would say the only spanish waiter) was rude, arrogant.....

Everything's Tasty

My first visit here definitely impressed. Everything that we tasted on the menu was great, particularly the shrimp tapas (if you don't order it yourself, the waiter will surely recommend it). Trust the staff on the wine selection - the bottle's are a bit pricey but definitely worth it. Basque food may work in all seasons, but wait for warm weather before going to Marichu - the heating's atrocious and the place litera... view more

Gracias, Miguel

Thanks a lot, Miguel, for making us feel like if we were back in Basque Country! Great Basque restaurant (we know what we are talking about.. we are Basque people), but above all, GREAT service! We will come back every time we go to New York and of course, we will tell everybody about it! Eskerrik asko denorik!!!

Not impressed...

A Spanish restaurant where the waiters don't speak Spanish? That's not what I call authentic... The ambiance in this tiny restaurant is cozyand the wine list great. We were not impressed by the food and, being from Spain, highly question its authenticity. It's a nice place, but there's better...

Amazing Food, Good Service

I don't think I have been anywhere else other than Bask country itself that serves food this authentic (and good). Everyone should check it out, and definitely try the regional delicacy, chipirones. In addition the waiter suggested a great wine (since we didn't know much about Spanish wines) and all of the service was great. Oh, and try and sit out back if you can.
