Eguzki B & B

In rural Durango, Basque Country, only 30 mins from Bilbao

Bars and restaurants in the local area


There is a very wide choice of places to eat in the Durango area, with various world-class restaurants on our doorstep, and many smaller, good value eating-houses in the local towns and villages.  

Lunch is served between about 13.00 and 15.00, with dinner starting from 20.30 /20.45,  later at the weekend.   Pintxos are on sale before lunch, around 12.00 - 14.30, and then again before dinner from 19.00 to 21.00  i.e. don't expect to find much around to eat in late afternoon / early evening.   The set daily 'menú del día' is very good value for lunch during the week. 
A very lively  'pintxo pote' evening is to be had on Thursdays from 19.30 to 21.30 in Durango old town, also Abadiño and Elorrio, where you get a free pintxo with every drink.  Brings out all ages, specially in good weather.
