Had lunch on a saturday, the 55 euro menue with the txakoli tasting. There was excellent moments in this the meal, like the barnacles (percebes) with a lemon sauce rminding of a peruvian ceviche but still basque and full of cantabrian ocean, like some of the white txakoli wines, somw of which could not match the excellent food. Also outstanding... More

An absolute gem of a restaurant. Service and food exceptional with its great twist on the traditional and innovative new dishes. A truly wonderful find; if you're in Bilbao it should be at the top of your 'must visit' list.

We were recommended by a tour guide in San Sebastian who used to live in Bilbao. It's directly across the road from the Guggengeim museum. The food was delicious. The flavours were brilliantly put together and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

How this restaurant is only rated no.15 is beyond me. This is dining on a truly mesmerising level. If I know a restaurant has a good rating I will always opt for the taster menu. This was quite simply one of the best I've ever experienced - each course is presented simply with limited explanation (who decided Michelin star restaurants... More

We stumbled upon this delightful restaurant by chance. It has an interesting, modern decor inside and outside seating too. The meals were the best we had in Bilbao with delicious combinations put together by a chef that knows his stuff! The wait staff are knowledgeable and attentive. It's situated near the Guggenheim.

Located just round the corner from the Guggenheim museum, walking distance of you stay in the center. For the first time visitors I would recommend a degustation menu. Yes, it will be pricier, but you try different things. We also took suggested wines to go with the food. The selection of wines per se was good, though I am not... More

A thoroughly enjoyable experience in every way. This is a small, intimate restaurant in a convenient location quite near the Bilbao Guggenheim. The service was perfect with high marks to the server who was very helpful in suggesting that I was ordering too much food and that smaller "menu" portions were available. The food without exception was well-prepared and interesting.... More
