Designed to be a special gastronomic experience, our Farewell Dinner will be at Azurmendi, outside of Bilbao. Voted No. 19 in the ‘World’s 50 Best Restaurants’, executive chef Eneko Atxa pushes the boundaries of culinary design and gastronomy. Awarded 3 Michelin stars, Chef Atxa is known as being a pioneer in altering the texture of foods with his cutting-edge techniques and precise presentations. The Basque native’s philosophy has always been about ‘pushing the envelope’ and he does just that.
Chef Eneko Atxa is one the most attentive chefs in the world. He has a keen mind that cannot stop creating and skilled hands that work with speed, precision and care. His gigantic kitchen is very technical while being ‘conceptual’ at the same time. Atxa manages an impressive team of more than 20 people and allows his staff to actualize his creative vision at his direction.
Azurmendi is built on a hilltop that overlooks the beautiful landscape of the Basque country. With its own gardens and vineyards, sustainability is very important. Azurmendi has become a model to be followed for its ethical and environmental principles.
Azurmendi is where we will experience Eneko’s passions – nature, gastronomy and art that intertwine to bring about his international haute cuisine.
Our dream was to create a restaurant where people can feel nature not only in the dishes but as an overall experience. Our roots define our cuisine.” ~ Eneko Atxa
