My brother and sister took me here for my 21st birthday, and as a serious foodie I was delighted. Great food, exciting and inventive. By far the best razor clams I have ever had.

Wow, I'm so shocked to read the other reviews because our experience couldn't have been more different. Maybe the chef and staff changed, but this was the best meal we had in Spain, by far, and the service was stellar. Granted, the restaurant was not crowded on the evening we went, but the wait staff was very attentive (unlike EVERY... More

I had better checked tripadvisor before walking into this restaurant. The building where it is situated is amazing with a combination of old architecture and new by Starck. So one thinks to fast that a restaurant in such surroundings would need to be excellent. The menu, entrance and restaurant is very nice and spacious ensuring good privacy. The host speaks... More

In a very expensive restaurant the less you can expect (of course apart of good food) is an exceptional service. Not at all. The food was medium to low level and extremely expensive for the quality. The service was terrible. Half an hour waiting for dessert (a piece of cake nothing more elaborated) is bad even in a cheap place,... More

We had their cheap menu for 49 euros. A lot is inkluderar in this: apertivo, 4 dishes, wine and coffee. The starter was very good and the dessert was good. The fish dish and the meat dish were a disaster. We do not understand the idea behind these dishes. They looked like and tasted like dishes you buy in a... More

We knew the meal was going to be expensive but it was a treat and recommended in a guide my Husband had studied before our visit. The Alhóndiga Bilbao building, site of the Restaurant is a very beautiful building. We called in on a Saturday night to book for the following evening at 9pm. This did not seem to be... More

We had a “special” evening with excellent food, but none of the employees (waiters or headwaiter) could speak a single word of English. We had questions about the food, but nobody could help us. They had several large business groups that did not make the atmosphere great….

The restaurant is located in the awesome Alhondiga building. An ancient wine warehouse recently renewed by P. Starck. We arrive at 14.00h to this restaurant, maybe with too high expectations due to the comments we read and unfortunately, we were somehow dissapointed. We asked for some Champagne and Cava cups while were waiting for the order but the bubbles were... More

Terrible experience. I was there with a large group for a conference social dinner. The only food that was edible was the jam (jambon, that is of coirse not cooked) and bread.
