My wife and I dined with a friend here who lives in the city and who chose this venue. She chose well! It has a somewhat modern feel to it and dishes come with modern twists. Not generally what I look for but on this occasion, all the dishes we ordered were delightful. No doubt there is a heavy influence... More

Everything about Bascook was a surprise. I never really knew what to expect but whatever was in my head, prior to my visit, was blown away immediately. The restaurant has been well decorated and ultimately is a nice place to sit down for a meal. The tables are larger than most other restaurants so no struggling to find room for... More

We stumbled upon bascook with three friends one lunchtime. Intrigued by the place we went in. No tables. We left quite upset. A week later upon returning to Bilbao we made a reservations for lunch. We were quite honestly blown away by the quality of the food. As we were leaving lunch we made reservations for dinner and went back... More

Food was good. First plate was amazing - black rice dish. Second dish (duck) was ok. Too chewy. Service was terrible. Felt ignored and too slow. Had to keep flagging staff down to place order, get water, our bill etc. Restaurant itself is beautiful. Presentation of food beautiful. Glad we went and checked it out. Wouldn't go back though.

Bascook had fabulous food and a fun environment. We ate as a couple, and the prices were reasonable for a "nice night out". A must-go if visiting Bilbao.

It was the best restaurant we've been to in Spain! We tried the black rice; rice cooked with the ink of squid and pieces of squid served with fried eggs, cod fish and fried skin of fish with kind of green beans and a yummy sauce. It was surpisingly good! Shrimp risotto, cod fish with pil pil sauce was better... More

Great atmosphere, good pricing for well done food. I wonder how come this place has also bad reviews. We were very happy with the food and the service; that stands higher than overall service quality for this country. Creative menu formation, tables not on top of each other, space kept for guest privacy, elegant but not over done, relaxed and... More

We went here mainly because the guide book said they included vegetarian options - and were overwhelmed by the quality of the meal! We went for the Menu del Dia equivalent (doesn't differentiate between Primeros and Secondas - you just choose two dishes from the wide range, doesn't include drinks) which made the meal good value, but even at full...
