Had to make a snap decision as to where to go close to the hotel and this was a great place. The food was very interesting although it took me a while to deconstruct the menu but it was worth it. The waiter was excellent without being over bearing and the cost ratio was extremely pleasing. Great wine list and... More

Nice setting and good food. I agree that some of the waiters weren't exactly friendly but who cares that's what the company is for. Good helping of bread with oil and then some very good food. First time I have tried barnacles done I the grill, Very tasty. Due to price would go on special occasions

Around the corner from the Guggenheim is this charming restaurant. Very popular with the locals. Very good service. The pumpkin cream soup and the artichokes to start were excellent. The wood pigeon was tasty for a main course. The only disappointment was the bacalao I was looking forward to. They exchanged for another dish without a instant of hesitation, making... More

Second visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed . Taster menu with wines is a great way to sample the cuisine but beware a glass of wine with nine courses plus maybe an aperitif can be a little demanding! Alex was a great sommelier and explained the many Basque wines in detail. Not really any negatives but possibly... More

A reservation at another restaurant got screwed up, and we stumbled upon Porrue, which was closeby. Luckily they had a table available. After a few weeks in Spain eating Tapas, Pintxos and cod, we had a need for good old steaks, vegetable and potatoes. In other words, the Spanish version of steak-frites and a salad. And there it was on... More
