I tried The Basque Market with a friend and we split a bunch of tapas, and got some recommendations from the staff. We had the croquetas (with piquillo peppers), basque meatballs, paella roll, and shrimp pil pil, and they were all really good - and our bill was $23! The market itself is very cool and the selection is great.... More

One of my favorite things to eat downtown. When they have it at lunch time. You better be there when they start selling it because it goes fast! The tapa are delicious as well and lets you try a little bit of everything. The only downside is that there is very limited seating. And the majority of it is outside.

Very nice store and eatery on the Basque block in Boise. They make you feel welcome here and their food is always great for a quick bite. Lots of Spanish foods on the shelves to make you feel like you are back in the Basque country.

We were so delighted to find this little piece of northern Spain right here in our own city. The noon paella is a special treat for us, but we also enjoy stopping by for little goodies, a bottle of wine or just to bask in the Basque-ness of it all.

Part of me doesn't even want to write this review because this is a hidden gem of Boise. The wine, food, and service are fantastic and the setting inside is casual and charming. One of my favorite places to go in Boise, hands down!

The Basque Market has a nice selection of Spanish wines and is a great place for a quick lunch or pintxos. Every Wednesday and Friday at noon they serve Paella.

intriguing Basque market with helpful staff. The outside seating was a treat for lunch, combined with outstanding cheeses, excellent tapas sized servings. Meals are a bit light-which is my preference.

We go to the Basque Market each time we visit Boise and have never been disappointed. The food is authentic and the selection of wines from Spain is excellent. On a previous trip we happened to be there on National Paella Day and watched as they created a massive pan of paella... Outstanding!
