Mesa en Restaurante Maitia

Welcome to Maitia

“Cooking: art ?, culture ? For me everything that enhances beauty is an art. In a world that is often marked by ugliness and degradation, my daily work wants to be an invitation to rediscover the path of beauty in Cooking. But beauty is never an end in itself; it must be harmonized with constant work, training and, of course, with imagination.

French writer Marc Augé described restaurants like Maitia would like to be as places where you take your time. Given the obsession with instantaneity and haste, the existence of the bistro is a form of resistance; It is a zone outside the walls, an extension of the home where one is no longer at home, but has not yet reached the street (from Éloge du Bistrot parisen)”

Covadonga de la Rica

“My name is Covadonga de la Rica Aranguren and I was born in Bilbao. After studying Law in Madrid I obtained “Le Grand Diplôme Le Cordon Bleu” in Paris. Since then I have not stopped making the most of many opportunities I have had to learn working with cooks such as Luis Irizar, Jaume Subirós, Ricardo Idiáquez, Ángel Paracuellos or Juanmari Arzak and doing stages in restaurants like Le Toit de Passy, Duquesnoi, The Empordà Motel or Chomin.

I have taught in different private schools in Spain such as Telva, Alambique, Cayenne, La Cordelería, Anafe, Sal y Pimienta, La Cocina de Bea and Chef Bleu.

With this broad experience I opened Maitia in 2011: a restaurant with a little number of tables and a simple and cosy atmosphere where you can eat delicious, seasonal cuisine.

The spirit of service and the sincere friendship sustains my work”.

“I believe that there will always be everything. Places to eat fast food and other more unique places that spread beauty, and that tradition of know-how, of knowing correct behavior and being, which I believe are the keys to that tradition.”

At Maitia we wish to offer to all our clients the best possible experience. Given that the number of tables we have in the restaurant is just seven, with a maximum of between 16 and 20 people per service, any last minute change affects us negatively, preventing us from reallocating it to other people, and having to assume the cost that supposes that the client does not show up; for this reason we have launched a new reservation system with Cancellation Policy.

ONLY IN CASE of cancelling the reservation less than 24 or 48 hours before the date of appointment (depending of the number of guests), the Cancellation Policy will be applied: € 40 per person (VAT included).

For this purpose we will request your card number, the expiration date and the verification code at the time of making your reservation.

I must point out that common sense is always employed and that we treat everybody with "eyes wide open" taking into account his circumstances.
