Bascook serves food jewels!

Great restaurant in Bilbao, Bascook. Old factory made into stylish and rustic invironment. Menu degustasion or pick what you want. All dishes small jewels of taste and look. These people deserve to succeed and you deserve their good food and to enjoy the ambience. Wine is at what you pay in the... read more

Wow! Luckily enough we arrived at 12.30 before it was open so managed to book a table for 1.30 when it opened. One of our party is in a wheel chair and they had a stairlift to take you down to the restaurant. The inside is truly amazing considering it was an old factory. When 2.00pm came you could understand... More

The menu was not in English which made things a bit difficult but got the waiter to translate which I felt a bit bad about. I ordered the steak which was €28. We had bread for starters along with some gazpacho which was very pleasant! (Could've had that for dinner!) we where also given some sushi which was amazingly presented... More

Amazing place and amazing food. The pre fix lunch menu is a must. Charming and interesting place, and great service. Good wine selection. Tartar de buey and maki de Gilda are the best.

Walking around town looking for lunch we stumped upon a pot filled with corks outside so we walk into this beautiful decorated restaurant. We were asked if we had reservations which we did not but they had a table (a bit later the place was completely full). A young happy waitress brought and explained us the menu. All medium size...

I had dinner with other coworkers there and we enjoyed a great meal in a cool place. The menu is divided in three kind of cooks and it is better ask to the waiter for suggestions. The dishes are very well prepared however there are very normal in quantity, if you eat a lot it is better go other place.... More

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
