Eneperi makes for a memorable experience to share with your beloved ones in the perfect setting of Matxitxako and Gaztelugatxe, where you can enjoy any of our three gastronomic proposals in a unique environment.
An Exceptional Environment
Eneperi is located in a privileged ecosystem right in the heart of the protected biotope of San Juan de Gaztelugatxe. This coastal strip that stretches from Bakio to Cape Matxitxako provides some of the most spectacular landscapes of the entire Cantabrian coast, including Gaztelugatxe, which is considered one of the natural wonders of the world, in addition to the Isle of Akatz.
At Eneperi you will find a very special place to enjoy yourself in the company of the ones you love in an environment which respects nature and offers stunning views. You will also enjoy large and very well-kept gardens and an outdoor playground for children that will make their experience even more joyful. We also provide a pay parking area with a 270-vehicle capacity as well as access adapted to people with limited mobility.
Three Culinary Options
No matter what your choice may be, we will fit your bill. From our selection of pintxos available at the bar, through the large variety of assorted portions in our beer house to the exquisite delights in our restaurant, Eneperi is the best fit offering top quality in all the services we provide.
We focus on attention to detail and customer satisfaction. We are firmly committed to selecting products and preparing dishes of the highest quality in a pleasant atmosphere in order to ensure a unique experience.
It is said that the name Eneperi comes from the joining of the terms “Ene”, from the Basque word Doniene (San Juan), and “Peri”, which means festival in Basque; that is, “Feria de San Juan” (St. John’s Festival). The name gives a glimpse of the essence of Eneperi as a place where people have been meeting and celebrating over time.
Eneperi’s roots come from Urizarreta, a traditional Basque country house built in 1816 on a hillside in San Pelaio, a neighbourhood in Bakio facing Gaztelugatxe and the Isle of Akatz. There, several generations made their living exclusively on farming and livestock for over a century. In 1994 Eneperi opened its doors as a restaurant.
At Eneperi our soil and past are of prime importance. To honour our local heritage, we have a museum where ancient tools used in carpentry, knitting and plowing as well as txalaparta (percussion instruments used in traditional Basque music) are on display in addition to our fishing legacy, with which we have very close ties.
St. John’s Night at Eneperi
At Eneperi tradition is above and beyond everything else. Here the pagan and the religious have lived together, from the old trade fairs where the baserritarras sold their local produce to the current pilgrimage that still takes place, such as “El Día de San Juan” (St. John’s Day)
