Wanted to try some local Basque food and chanced upon this restaurant on my way back to the hotel. It is located just opposite to the Museo de Bella Artes which shouldn't be hard to find. I was warmly welcomed by the staff into the restaurant and they could speak pretty goood English. I was showed the menu but was... More

Excellent friendly service. Came upon this place by chance and returned a couple of days later for another meal. Vegetable salad, yum! Sirloin steak that appeared to be a fillet, served on a hot dish but not so hot as to sizzle and ruin a beautifully rare steak. Partner had the confit of duck which again was excellent. Ice cream...

We were lucky to stumble upon this restaurant on a Sunday night when every other decent looking restaurant within walking distance of the museum seemed to be closed. Not wanting to eat in a bar or have fast food, we were the second table to walk in around 9:45 PM. Despite the lack of alternates, we ended up having a... More

This restaurant is located near the Bilboa museum so a good location and easy to find. It has a lively atmosphere and an aforadable menu. I confess I had a hamburg. Not very adventuresome on my part and not very Spanish but very tasty.

Visited Bilbao recently and came across Abaroa Plaza Museo restaurant by chance while on a walk around. Staff were pleasant and they had a good menu. The portion size of hake I received was a decent size and excellent. The cost of food, wine and water was € 30 and good value for money.

Since it was Aste Nagusia, the Semana Grande, we had the chance to try a menu which included some entrees, one main course and a sweet for a special price. They offer many menu and I suggest you to opt for one of them because it will give you the chance to taste many typical dishes at one time. Anyways,... More

Used this restaurant twice during a conference. Happy to try it a second time. Food quite regional and service friendly and efficient. Menu available in English and other languages which is helpful. Don't try to get in before 9pm!!

For those of us that live (or have lived) in Bilbao our whole life, the restaurants Abaroa (there are three or four of them) are not that special, because they offer the same traditional food that we have been eating our whole life, at home or at restaurants: chipirones (squid), bacalao (cod), pimientos rellenos (filled red peppers), chicken, beef, hake,...

Very nice little restaurant that had some very tasty dishes at reasonable prices. A nice change from all the Pintxos restaurants where its hard to get a table.
