Open Monday - Saturday
Such a "neat" place, but small. It's like entering another world or place in time. It's a happy place - a friendly place. Brick walls; a huge wooden bar; smells of cooking lamb - spices, chorizos, garlic! It's a pub, but the food is not presented in baskets lined with butchers paper. The food comes on plates. Nothing fancy, but presented well. Menu items include a wide range of sandwiches, soups, salads, Basque sandwiches and dishes (Solomo, paella) and snacks and side dishes. The quality of the food is good. The service personel are friendly and at times funny. They treat you like you are at home. They are not overbearing, but are there to help you. Prices are fair and range from $2.25 (side house salad) to $8.25 (lamb grinder - which is wonderful!). There is a full range of beverages and fountain items.   
Yes, we would take friends and relatives to Gernika. Take your friends and take Mom. A fun experience and I suppose at times, it can get loud and crowded. When you enter Gernika, you enter the Basque country.
