Best meal ever

I'm used to good meals, and this is the best I can recall, topping long time favourites as well as 3* Michelin. Food was amazing, and service perfect.Go there, ask for a seat in front of the kitchen and enjoy

for a 1 star Michelin restaurant this was a disappointment. We chose the 10 course menu 8 of which did not live up to expectation. The total bill came to €215.00 including 1 bottle of wine (excellent). When we asked ofr a second bottle they said they had run out but would find a similar one, which we refused and... More

We booked here for a midweek lunch whilst staying in Bilbao for a couple of days, it's nicely tucked away down by the river opposite the famous food market. We were contacted in advance and asked if we would like to dine at the Kitchen table, of which we were very happy to. It was quiet when we arrived at... More

Only a small restaurant so advisable to book. Very friendly staff and helpful in guiding us through the menu. We were having lunch so we had the 7 course menu. Also one of us was vegetarian and this was no problem. Food was amazing, stunning to look at and exquisite to eat. We had the wine flight which is a... More

We had lunch here and it was delicious. Very creative dishes and very flavorful. The hostess and staff were incredible. We were traveling with my in-laws who don't eat much and were not ready for even the 7-course tasting menu. The restaurant was VERY accommodating and worked with them. Highly recommend.

I went to Mina on the last night of a trip to Spain for my 25th wedding anniversary celebration. Although the a reservation for was made a month earlier and supposedly reconfirmed by our hotel that day they had no reservation for us. They made us wait 20 minutes will they looked for other days, dates or month that the... More

Dear Sir, we sincerely regret what happened last Wednesday (June 29th). In Mina we have a strict reservation management procedure for two main reasons. First beacuse we are a small restaurant and our volume of reservations is higher than the number of guests we can serve, so we confirm every reservation to make sure all our guests come. And second... More

We booked lunch here and sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen as we had the set 7-course menu. From the start, service was wonderful, and it was a joy to watch the chefs work their magic. Each dish was filled with several unique flavors, all working together in the very best of ways. For the quality and experience, we... More

Mina is a gem, attentive staff make the place resonant, and the chef is culinarily willing to take risks. We booked and then turned up on the wrong day, having missed our reservation by 24 hours. Disappointed the staff rebooked us in for Saturday night without any fuss and made us feel at ease even though we had cost them... More

We had lunch on the 17th June and prior to our visit informed them of allergies and discussed our preferences on arrival.We found every course was delicious with simple elegant pure flavours. Cod with grapefruit soufflé was an example of how the chefs creatively pushed the boundaries of expected flavour combinations,(not passion fruit as previous review).I did not like the... More

Out of ten courses, three failed us (one terribly), three others were impressive and the rest were just decent. We do fine dining not that often but not rarely too and found this restaurant too experimental. The crabmeat was drowned in passionfruit foam discrediting what the crabmeat alone could have achieved. The barnacles were ok. The dish looked better than... More
