Azurmendi restaurant

Sustainable and Inspirational

A three-Michelin-star restaurant in the Spanish Basque Countryside, known for its innovative cutting-edge cuisine, is also the most sustainable restaurant in the world.

Azurmendi is a beautiful, elongated modern glass restaurant that is perched on a hillside with stunning views over the Basque Country in Larrabetzu, just a few kilometres from Bilbao in Spain.

The striking restaurant is the gastronomic vision of chef Eneko Atxa who is fully committed to the concept of sustainability. Azurmendi was built with sustainability of the building and its operations in mind. Alongside the interior garden, the wide kitchen and the open dining room, the building has a greenhouse that holds a germoplasm bank with more than 400 seed varieties from the Basque Country.

A unique experience awaits diners at Azurmendi. They are first taken on a tour to the restaurant’s rooftop vegetable garden, where fresh produce are supplied and then led through the kitchen to an indoor greenhouse, where ‘snacks’ and the popular ‘edible cotton’ are served.

The restaurant with its refined decor is famous for its bold-flavored, avant-gardistic that are resolutely different from other traditional Basque restaurants. Diners can enjoy such exquisite dishes as – truffled egg, which is cooked “inside out” with part of the yolk removed and substituted with truffle consommé, or an oyster dish, which features a tartar, jelly and entire oyster.

Opened in 2012, Azurmendi restaurant achieved its three Michelin stars in 2015 and has retained ever since. In addition, Azurmendi is also environmentally friendly, recycling its waste, harvesting rain and using geothermal energy.
