At Azurmendi you can enjoy the beauty and environment of the Basque Country, offering a unique experience by visiting different parts of the restaurant. From being welcomed with a txakoli in a garden surrounded by trees of the environment to the neuralgic space that would be the kitchen and ending before going to the dining room through a magical garden of flowers. In each space, the customers will be able to enjoy different snacks.
