Azurmendi*** restaurant is the best example of signature cuisine in Biscay and the only restaurant in the province with three Michelin stars.
It was built into a hillside surrounded by autochthonous vineyards. Eneko´s house, as he calls the restaurant, was conceived and built prioritizing sustainability, which is a foundation of his philosophy.
Azurmendi*** is possibly one of the most unique sustainable buildings of the modern architecture. It reflects the canons of the Basque identity and integrates photovoltaic solar panels and a geothermic system to produce electricity, harvests rainwater to cover a number of operations, recycles waste, etc. A charging station is available for electric cars. For all these reasons Azurmendi*** was granted the Sustainable Restaurant Award 2014.
Azurmendi*** is a restaurant where emotions multiply, where each corner, detail and service reflects the personality and philosophy of Eneko Atxa.
Opinionated About Dining distinguished Azurmendi*** as the best restaurant in Europe in 2015, and this 2017 Elite Traveller has ranked it best restaurant in the world.
