A family to welcome you in the hotel restaurant Ibarboure

Our values and engagements


Basque Nature as an anchor point

Parc and herb garden

Right in the middle of the parc you’ll find the herb garden, real part of the kitchen, that offers a vegetal immersion for the pleasure of our guests.

Xabi keeps saying it, “the nature that surrounds us is so generous that it helps sometimes no to go further than the family barriers. Borage flowers, primrose, wild garlic…edible flowers, are a real inspiration that rhythms the seasonality of our menus, allowing ourselves to an endless creativity”.


Producers and local products enlightened

Based in a region that goes from the impulsive Atlantic to the snowed mountain tops of the Pyrenees, our products are local from less that 150km away for most of them, to have a subtle cuisine full of flavours based on the best local products.

The chefs’ implication with the producers is real, a truly interaction that give birth to custom made products.

“We pass everyday the passion of our love of products to our teams and guests”.
