Café Anaïak: a masculine kitchen

Café Anaïak: a masculine kitchen

The Ithurriague brothers opened this bistro to honour their peasant friends.

Anaïak means "brother" in Basque, so the name of this down to earth bistro has a double meaning. On the one hand, it is the bistro version of the Au Fin Gourmet gastronomic restaurant. The two are linked and only a few metres apart. On the other, the Ithurriague brothers run it. The Basques have a southwestern cuisine that is as open and direct as are the Bearnaise.

Savour the iconic local dishes like duck confit or the 'poule au pot' (stewed chicken). The cuisine features contrasts and invention in dishes such as squid risotto or ice cream with chicory. The menu is revisited daily, depending on the arrivals from the various local markets and local producers, in order to guarantee an unbeatable freshness in each dish.

Colourful characters, the brothers credit the farmers and gardeners with whom they work on their menu. A well-deserved tribute that also allows you to seek out these providers, should you wish to buy any of their products. Open for lunch only.
