Great option near the old town

Tasty food and cozzy but minimalist decoration. The pleasant treatment from staff made the dinner even more special .

I visited this place to have a special team dinner with my colleagues on a visit to Bilbao. We took the 10 course menu, have to say that all the warm options were very good, within the cold plates the mussel was actually very good, but the rest, wasn't. Have 5 consecutive dishes of raw fish, some of them smelly... More

We took the 7 courses' menu for €60 which is really great. The food is very creative, fresh and very tasty. The creativity doesn't kill the food or the taste. Although you take kind of fix menu they are very flexible with changes, so if you don't like one of the dishes they'll offer you an alternative. Service is very... More

My husband and I received a 10-plate tasting menu at this restaurant as a wedding gift, valued at around $100. We could not have been more pleased with the experience. Staff was extremely courteous, professional and well trained. The sommelier guided us through what wine pairing would be best for our menu, we ended up having an excellent Tortoka which... More

Excellent food in this fine dining style restaurant. Spanish food with a modern twist. It was not cheap, but offered something different which we enjoyed. Would recommend.

Mina is a gastronomic restaurant in what is used to be the "wrong" side of the river´s bank years ago. I have visited several times, and whilst it feels a bit pricey for a local, their tasting menu is very good. Really nice service in line with the kitchen, ask for table by the window, enojy the views of the... More

Mina is a truly wonderful dining experience. The location is fantastic: waterfront overlooking the Nervión River. The decor is discreet and modern, and small. There are limited tables and a few seats on the bar. The kitchen is open to the dining area, so you get a good view of the elaborate preparations that go into your meal. The service... More

We had high expectations about Mina, first impression when you get into the restaurant is fabulous, quiet, relax and easy going restaurant....Everything went gradually badly. Food wasn't as great as it seem to be, matching wine and sommelier notes were lack of coherence, ambiance and service low for this sort of restaurant. They might had a bad night so did... More

It was like watching beautiful choreography produce wonderful food. A dance of creativity and flavor. That is what it is like when you sit at the counter and watch what goes on to produce one fantastic dinner. The restaurant offers tasting menus of different numbers of offerings. But knowing we may not get back, we went for the whole thing.... More

Visited alone and was pleased to sit at the counter by the open kitchen. Had the seven course menu and the matched wines. I would thoroughly recommend having the wines as well - they were both unusual and varied. The food was absolutely brilliant. A pleasure to see how calm the kitchen was - and how much the staff seemed... More
