Gardnerville's favorite Family-style dining

We’re somewhat of a Nevada icon. We’ve been serving locals and travelers alike for over 60 years. Our multi-course family-style meals are traditional, plentiful and palate-pleasing. Come experience the tradition and bring your appetite!







A few of the reasons to give us a visit

Over 60 years of history

We've been serving basque cuisine for over 60 years. You could say we're a staple in the Carson Valley.

Voted Best Basque Dining for 10+ years

If you're looking for traditional basque cuisine, look no further. Our kitchen is committed to purchasing local products whenever possible.

We treat each guest like family

Family-style doesn't stop with the food. Come in and visit with us to experience our friendly and inclusive atmosphere.

Best Picon Punch in the west

At least we think so. It's a mandatory beginning to a Basque dinner. Try one, but watch out for the effects of the second!

A Gardnerville Tradition

Though our restaurant has been around for over 60 years, our story starts long before.

Locally Sourced Offerings

In addition to working our restaurant, our family also raises All-Natural Grass-Fed Beef on Ranch #1 in Carson Valley’s own Genoa, NV. Free of antibiotics and growth hormones, we are proud to serve such high quality beef direct to consumer through our kitchen. We also feature cuts of meat sourced from neighboring ranches. We are always working towards bringing you the most natural and local products available, including Borda Ranch Basque Lamb raised right here in Northern Nevada. From our pastures to your plates, we serve you with pride and quality.
