Top 5 / Europe

La Rioja is one of Spain’s most popular wine regions, but it also boasts some of the best restaurants in the country. Whether you’re seeking the best Chardonnay or you just want a juicy burger, you can’t go wrong with any of these eateries.


El Portal del Echaurren
El Portal del Echaurren is the first restaurant awarded a Michelin star in La Rioja. The innovative menu offers two tasting options and features dishes like cod filet and snails and egg yolk.


Ikaro is hidden in La Rioja’s capital city of Logroño. The elegant restaurant offers an avant-garde tasting menu that includes gastronomic fare like leek and squid lasagna alongside Iberian pork cured in ham fat.


La Vieja Bodega
La Vieja Bodega offers traditional Riojan cuisine just outside the capital. The rustic building is also an old winery, and it’s one of the few places where you’ll find stewed bull’s tail cooked to perfection.


La Cocina de Ramón
La Cocina de Ramón is located right next to the Mercado de Abastos in Logroño. Its easy access to fresh ingredients makes it the ideal place to sample traditional sausage dumplings with summer truffle.


Restaurante Sopitas
Restaurante Sopitas is hidden in Arnedo. The homey restaurant featured alcoves carved into stone for an intimate atmosphere among lovers or friends. The menu features local favorites like suckling goat, but the croquettes are the real draw.
