It's a gastro-trip from the entrance to the last bit of dessert. Traditional Basque food culture meets great innovation and talent. Perfect service. Perhaps a little long experience overall, but well worth a visit

I am not going to talk about the dishes this time. But just offer some comparison. Michelin gave it 3 *, rightly so. If there is a higher category, it may get that too! It is currently No.24 on the World's Best Restaurant list but I am pretty sure that it will go up and up and I won't be... More

The Prêt-à-Porter concept makes fine cuisine accessible and gives an excellent opportunity to explore new flavors. Flawless execution from the kitchen using simple local ingredients. The result is a flavor intense set of dishes that are relatively easy to enjoy. Correct service on an enjoyable contemporary space. Definitely worth the visit.

We went to Basque for a mixed business and recreation trip, just after landing in Bilbao, we were invited by our business partner for lunch at Azurmendi. And what a place: Modern, professional service, and absolutely outstanding cooking!!! Absolutely recommendable!

This year my gastronomic experiences have been pretty poor due to some big names in NYC. Had amazing meals in Helsinki (Chef&Sommelier) and KItchen Table in London. I kind of thought that was it for the year. Went to Mugaritz with some apprehension, but it was better than the ones in NY, anything will be it seems. And then, we... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in northern Spain. The location is unique, on a high hill above the motorway. The view is beautiful. We came for lunch. They started with the "Picnic" which was charming. Then you are invited to the kitchen. Only afterwards the meal was started. The cooked egg was amazing. The lobster was done perfectly. The... More

We had read about Azurmendi and were curious to learn how it would be to enjoy a 3* Michelin restaurant in the Basque country. All guest are greeted by their private chef from the kitchen who is guiding you through their green house on top of the building. You are being offered small pieces of various vegetables and shots, which... More

With a reputation which precedes him (recently all the way to Hong Kong), one approaches the hallowed ground of Azurmendi with some trepidation. However, the "picnic" on arrival indicates that an odyssey of flavor is upon you. More important, the personal greeting of Chef Eneko Atxa, in the immaculate (and most logically organized) kitchen, sets the tone for the warmth... More

We loved every bit of this restaurant from the moment we stepped in. The service was great and we liked that it was not too stuffy. I had a special dietary requirement and it was not an issue. Every dish was a special experience. We had their home grown wine which was surprisingly good too. This is definitely a restaurant... More

This is the only 3 Michelen star restaurant we have eaten at ... and it was well worth the effort to find and to our surprise well worth the price. There was an outstanding array of different flavours that were all presented beautifully. The service was also excellent, they mixed and matched a few items between the two menus. I... More
