The tiny Basque village of Guéthary is the HQ of one part of the Ibarboure family, the rest of whom can be found at the Frères Ibarboure restaurant in Bidart. In this characteristic 1930’s Basque house, formerly a hotel, Martin and his son David are in the kitchen, while Marie-Claude, David’s mum, warmly upholds Basque traditions of hospitality and his daughter, Camille, dispenses insightful wine tips. The quintessence of a family business, although it must be said that David did skip the roost for a while, spending time with Pierre Gagnaire in Hong Kong. Father and son craft masterful dishes depicted by suave seasonings, a subtle play on transparency and contrast and perfectly ripe ingredients… The produce, most of which is Basque, is prepared as simply as possible. Delightful service.
