The restaurant have around 20 seats in around 20 Sqm with simple and functional decoration (menu is on the wall, no printed menus). It opens (for first seating) at 8pm and the restaurant soon filled and the atmosphere was fantastic with everyone really enjoying the conviviality.
The chef was absolutely amazing (watching him select, weigh up, marinate and arrange the meat on the grill was pure theatre). He worked hard and alone, and fair price for the meat and the work.
The meat was first grilled on the higher level for about 15 -20 mins. then on to the lower level and to char it to perfection. It was well cooked and served with yummy juicy serve with their own mango cause. All escorted by a simple green salad and sweet potato frites
Opening hours: Lunch from 1200 and Dinner from 1930
In a small street in the city centre, this neighbourhood bistro proves to be Fantastic. Two brothers work alongside each other in the kitchen, creating lovely market-based dishes while keeping the spotlight firmly on Basque products.
We had an absolut fantastic evening at Chez Ospi. The service was very professional but also warm and very welcoming. The restaurant seemed to be very popular both among locals and with tourist as it was a mixed crowd.
It was not easy to chose the starters, but we went for the Fois Grais (since you almost have to eat this i France) and the Ravioli with crab. Both were excellent
From the mains we had sea beam (very good) and the turbot filet (maybe best ever had) and the beef tournedos which also were good with out any taste sensation.
When we came to dessert, we were to full 🙂 to pick …but wanted to have the chocolate fondant that was superyummy!
