The nomination was announced as a result of the positive ratings that the restaurant has received since opening in July 2016. Led by Iñaki Zendoia, the kitchen team’s true pièce de résistance has been their energy and enthusiasm, and this passion has meant that within a very short period of time they have received global recognition through nominations like this one.

The organisation of the awards will take place in South Africa and will include restaurants chosen from every country in the world. The Bodega Katxiña Restaurant has been nominated in the category of the best luxury grill restaurants in the world.

Public voting will open on 3 April and people will be able to vote for their favourite establishments up until 3 May. The 2018 awards ceremony will be held at the Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ireland.

The restaurants will all be competing against one another. These days, the culture of sharing our opinions on social media is rapidly gaining pace, and it is this trend that has led a family-owned restaurant in Orio to be nominated as one of the best luxury restaurants in the world.
