Good large group business dinner

I was here for a business dinner with a large group, so my comments refer only to this type of setting. Overall they devised a safe but pleasant menu, with excellent produce (cured beef, prawns, mushrooms, fish). A hake was notably very well executed. They accommodated last minute dietary... read 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. I remember a first dish of puff pastry with mushrooms and cream that convinced me to tell to the waitress that they cound not cook a dish like... More

Cod, risotto with wild mushrooms, a tarragon sorbet as a palette cleanser, lamb filled with truffles, .(..portions were large) wine suggestions were spot on. While it certainly wasn't inexpensive, were used to paying 2-3... More

Had dinner with a friend at this location which was recommended to us by a local. The complex where this restaurant is located is very nice (check the ceiling glass pool). The decoration and service are very good. They even have the menu in english. The food is very good but for the price you may find better places. The... More

The Yadiola sits in the second floor of the Alhondiga, Bilbao's civic center designed by no less than Architect Philip task. The restaurant offers elegant dining, made even more special by the artistic environs of the building. Service was what one would expect of any fine dining restaurant. We were disappointed, however, that no one spoke english. It was something... More
