This was a good average meal. The value for money good and the food nothing to make it stand out. It has an excellent aspect across from the Guggenheim.

This was by far the most expensive place we ate in Bilbao - HOWEVER - Bilbao is very cheap in compared to other European cities. We paid €90 here for a 6 course tasking menu and drinks. We were a little uncertain as to what was included in the price but when the bill came we were delighted to see... More

Cozy and convent if you staying at the Gran Domine. A bit pricing but dining on the terrace was excellent.

2 "amuse bouches" while we waited. First courses were the best. The word eclectic comes to mind on some dishes. Main course- my fish was just cooked but the skin was still soft. They insisted you order the pudding before on the grounds that it had to be fresh cooked! Caramelised bread? - served cold!! Methinks "get them to order... More

Our travel agent booked this restaurant at the last minute and boy were we thrilled. This was the best meal we ate in Spain. The service was excellent. The view spectacular. But you go for the food and it was outstanding! The only meal that could top this was at the French Laundry. Don't miss!

Everything about this is first class. Cost is reasonable and the mushroom ravioli I had last night is to die for. Also a tremendous view across the Guggenhime with the mountain backdrop. Jewels on the table are also a neat touch.

We had the testing menu but with two small apetizers and seven different dishes it was way too much food. Although the seven dishes were half servings it is still too much food for some of us. The food was excellent and very imaginative but it was "real" food unlike some other experimental restaurants. The sevice was good and pleasant... More
