From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the feeling was of absolute perfection. Service was faultless and personal without being to intruding. The food was out of this world. if I could rate to 150% i would do so. Definitely recommend if ever in this part of Spain.

They spontaneously offered to share our appetizers and therefore enjoy 2 very delicious ones. We spent a wonderful Saturday evening in this excellent restaurant;... More

We had a really wonderful meal here while staying in Bilbao for the weekend. The food and wine are both excellent value and the menu imaginative and varied. We had the tasting menu and for 55 euros and had 9 delicious courses. I tried things that I wouldn't normally choose and they didn't disappoint. The service is first rate and... More

Just a note to thank you very much Unai for an absolutely delicious dinner. Everyone had a splendid evening and was delighted by the quality, imagination, presentation behind the dishes not to mention the excellent and friendly service. It was a joy!

We went to Porrue based partly on Tripadvisor reviews and partly because of its convenient location just around the corner from the Guggenheim Museum. Porrie is not cheap, but more than worth every penny! The food was truly gourmet, certainly in the same league as top restaurant meals we've had in San Francisco, New York, and various other foodie havens... More

One of our favorites in Bibao. Hidden away found this treasure that can do magic with food. Slow cook egg on mushroom was my favorite. The trotters was really good. We went there twice and definitely a must visit for us while in Bibao.

A last minute decision to book a table at Porrue turned out to be an excellent decision although I'm sure we could have got a table without booking as remained less than full all evening. We had the Spring tasting menu which included sardines, cod and sea bass. Service was attentive but relaxed, quite a contrast with our more formal... More
